Hello everyone

SQL Prompt Core doesn't work in my Visual Studio 2017.4p223xapnbnx.png

When I type any SQL statements I haven't got any hints.
How can I fix this issue?

Microsoft Visual Studio Enterprise 2017
Version 15.4.2

Redgate SQL Prompt

    I had this, too. Revert to the previous version of SQL Prompt. For some reason, the previous version works and the latest one doesn't.
  • Hi @mkane / @Jovanny ,

    I think this issue may be related to this thread.

    What version of SQL Prompt are you using? Is it SQL Prompt Core or SQL Prompt Pro?

    You can find the version in the menu SQL Prompt -> Help -> About SQL Prompt

    We changed behaviour in the latest release so that we do not override SSDT autocomplete if you have a SSDT Database Project in your solution.

    Best wishes,

    Hi Michael

    The SQL Prompt version is Core.
    It doesn't work, ifa type of an opened project is SQL Server Database Project.
    In this case only the inner intellisense works, even for scripts connected to an SQL Server database.

    If an opened project type is another, SQL Prompt works well.

    Best regards.

  • Hi @Jovanny,

    We disable SQL Prompt for SSDT because we do not yet support offline suggestions from SQL files in Visual Studio/SSDT Projects which was causing users to lose capabilities provided by the Native Intellisense. There's not currently a workaround except using SQL Prompt Pro, but we would like to understand a bit more about how you are trying to use SQL Prompt Core.

    Would it be possible to ask a little about how you are using SQL Prompt with the SSDT project? Are you using a connected query window while in a database project for instance? What do you prefer about SQL Prompt's autocomplete?

    Hi Michael

    I just tried to use SQL Prompt Core in my SSDT Projects connecting an opened scripts to a target database. It was unsuccessful to make SQL Prompt works in such way.

    Best regards.
