you mean the background color of the editor itself? you can change these, but it's changed for ALL editors, and not by connection
the connection outline color was introduced to prevent the very thing you want to prevent
at some point, you need to to stop and pay attention before you run a destructive or expensive SQL
Yes, I mean the background color of the editor Itself. I found the option to change the color for all editors.
the connection outline color is interesting, except that it is not very visible, the outline is very thin.
:-) So the solution is: be careful, be careful and be careful
Just a FYI, you should see the connection color also applied to the connection name in your worksheet - so upper right hand corner.
Yes I noticed the color change also in the list of choices connections.
but I think the backgroud allow customization will be more interesting :-), require less effort to control.
maybe I'm crazy
thank you a lot
You're definitely not crazy.
We went back and forth quite a bit on how best to implement the color coding for connections. Your idea came up, but we dismissed it as potentially ugly and distracting. Imagine having 7 connections and worksheets open and having SQLDev looking like a bad holiday sweater.
We end up on the borders for the editors. If those are too easy to miss, we could increase the line 'weight' - make them thicker. But we wanted to start lightly and see how it was received and go from there.
And that's how that feature kind of developed...
:-) thank you for these explanations.
when I think more seriously, I realize that this is an easy but not the most effective idea, because the color of the background can make reading code very dificult (if we use two close colors ).
but I think it will be better that the outline is larger, for example, to the color of the bar line numbers with the color of connection, or the tabs, :-)
