Docking Tools

Previous  Top  Next

Many tools inside Database Workbench can be docked to the sides and the bottom of the main screen and can be "pinned" and "unpinned".


There are multiple docking types -


1.Stacked docking

       Docked windows battle for the same space and are all visible. Dockable windows can be stacked in different forms - see the screenshot below.

The SQL Catalog and Code Catalog stack-docked


2.Tabbed Docking

       Docked windows are tabbed together, they all have the same space, but only one docked window is visible at a time. For an example, see the above screenshot - the SQL Catalog and Code Catalog are docked "tabbed".

You can move (undock) the tools by clicking the grab-bar and moving the moves while keeping the mouse key down.


When a docking area has windows docked to it, a splitter will appear so that you can resize the area by using the mouse.



Alternatively, a tool can be "pinned" and "unpinned", by default, the tools are pinned, when you unpin a tool, it will be on a "float bar" on a side of the main screen and will move into view when you hover with your mouse over it.
