Do you mean the "Statements" tab which appears along side the Message tab?
If so I'd love to know how to hide it as sometimes version 220.127.116.11 just switches to it (even re-opening it if I've closed it) for no apparent reason. I can understand the ability to see what is going on between SQL Developer and the database but I don't want to see it normally. However I DO want to see the messages tab.
whatever gets written too last, gets focus
the statements tab will have stuff running continuously, esp if you're typing, so we could look at having a pin type control to keep the messages tab in focus no matter what
Allowing the Message tab to be pinned would make a lot of sense
It is a pity being not able to hide it. Until now I have not found any use for it.
I do not know what I have done wrong because I do not have a pin to make the Messages pane always visible.
Perhaps on the next version we can have more control on SQL Developer interface.
Please let the user use the application as he or she wants.
Thank you very much.
if you close it, it will remain closed
