Navigating the user interface


The user interface is divided in 8 main areas:

  1. Title. The title area displays the software version number, the connection that you currently have on the screen, the username for the connection and the current window number. If the current screen has an open file the name of that file will display after the mentioned elements, followed by a star symbol (*) in case the file was modified and not saved yet.
  2. Menu. Refer to Menu for details.
  3. Quick Connect button and Status. Use the Quick Connect button to quickly connect to a Snowflake system. You can connect to multiple Snowflake systems at the same time and switch from one to the other from the “Window” menu option. The Status area displays the operations in progress –where available. By clicking on the red square you can cancel an operation in progress.
  4. Environment selectors. Use these combo boxes to switch the role, warehouse, database or schema. You can also set up the query timeout for all the database operations.
  5. Tree panel. The tree contains all of the databases and schemas selected by the user with their corresponding tables, views, functions and stored procedures. Refer to Tree for further details.
  6. DDL panel. When this window is open and you click in the tree on a table, view, function or procedure, the DDL for the object will be retrieved and shown here.
