After typing sp_helptext the popup does not contain stored procs or views, only functions are listed.

Version 3.6.0.109.

(BTW cross-database popups, thank you!)

    Thank you for your post. I have logged this down as a bug in SQL Prompt, to be fixed in a future release. Even in AdventureWorks or northwind, regardless of whether SQL Prompt is used in Query Analyzer or Management Studio, stored procedures and views never show up in the candidate list. Functions and types seem to be available, so it's confusing as to whether this is meant to work, or it works partially 'by accident'. Either way, this support should get fixed or taken out.

    Has this been fixed yet?

    I'm using version 3.7.0.32 and I still get nothing when using sp_helptext.
  • Whats even more annoying is, if I hit CTRL+SPACEBAR after typing sp_helptext I STILL can't select Views of Stored Procedures because they are grayed out from the selection box:
