Help with setting up and configuring custom user tools in UltraEdit (based on command line input)
9 posts Page 1 of 1

Cause UE32 is a great text editor I write all my SQL queries with UE32 :D

But how do I have to configure a tool that the query is loaded in a already open PL/SQL instance? I've tried it with following:

Code: Select all
"C:\Program Files\plsqldev.exe" "%f"

With this I've every time to logon in a new PL/SQL Window.

AFAIK you can only launch new processes, but NOT use ("inject") existing processes (ora-sessions).
You have to live with a new session per tool-call.

I don't know if this is helpful, but I use the free Oracle SQL Developer for SQL stuff and from within this tool I register UltraEdit as an external tool.

So whenever I need to make some more powerful editing, I click the UE icon in SQL developer and the SQL file opens in UltraEdit.

Whenever SQL Developer gets focus the file is reloaded, so I can test the SQL, make small corrections, test again. If I also kept the file open in UE and go back, it of course detects that the file might have changed and suggests a reload. Really a neat integration.

Maybe plsqldev.exe can do something similar?

(Sadly Oracle SQL Developer can't take command line arguments (yet) so integration the other way round from UE isn't possible at the moment, but then there is SQLPlus).
The way to register UE as an external tool in PL/SQL is great. This works fine for me :P

Thanks a lot and have a nice weekend

There is no such thing as an inconsistently correct system...
Therefore, aim for consistency; in the expectation of reaching correctness!
Hi Paolo.

Send me email and I send you how setup UE for running scripts from UE into oracle DB.

I realize this thread is several years old, but thought I would post this just in case anyone else was looking...

Run the following via the DOS command (F9):
If you use service names:
SqlPlus [UserName]/[Password]@[ServiceName] "@%f"

and if not:
SqlPlus [UserName]/[Password] "@%f"
From the PLSQL Developer Main Menu Choose: Tools, Configure Tools ...
Click on *Document Icon (New Tool)

Then Enter the following in the Detail fields below:

Tab: General
Description: EDIT Current File
Type: External
Executable/Script: "C:\Program Files\IDM Computer Solutions\UltraEdit\Uedit32.exe"
Parameters: #path
Default Path: #dir

Tab: Menu
Main Menu: Edit
Sub Menu: Undo
(.) Above

Tab: Button
[v] Toolbar button
Description: Edit File
