Copy a value from the Aggregate preview data.

Aggregates & Queries
On our radar


Would be nice to have an option copy a single value from previewed data.

PS: Although, I noticed that Ctrl+C copies all the values from the selected column.

I would like to be able to copy the value of a data cell from the grid in the View Data screen of a Database Entity.

This would be especially useful when the data in the cell has more characters than what is displayed in the view, so the visible data is truncated.

However, there are many other use cases when it would be handy to copy a value out of the View Data screen (eg: to use the value in documentation, correspondence, or to paste it into another query or filter, etc.).

I want to be able to select and copy one or more rows of data from the View Data screen of a Database Entity, so that I can paste the data into an Excel sheet.

This would be helpful when troubleshooting data related issues with multiple records or multiple fields in a record.

Ideally, the column headers should be included in the result when copying multiple rows, but not when copying only one row. Alternatively, a right click context menu to copy with or without column headers.

Hey Charles,

Merged your two ideas since they are very similar (one at cell level and one at row level).


Cheers

It would be nice if it is possible to copy a record value when you are viewing the data of a entity in service studio. Sometimes I want to test /debug some values in a aggregate where you can set the filters in the "test value" tab of an aggregate to see what the query result is. Sometimes the values are in encrypted or in GUID form, so writing them down is really time consuming. By just copying these values I will be able to test/debug aggregate query results.

Hi,

If we have Entity / Aggregate on our actions, we could try to display the records by input the filters or not. Could we copy the cell / row value from this records ?
Because if the cell of record containing the key / GUID number its being hard to keep the value.

Thanks

Merged this idea with 'Aggregate widget - ability to right click and copy column value' (created on 04 Mar 2015 22:59:02 by - -)
Aggregate widget - have the ability to right click and copy column value, i.e you might need to copy an identity/colnum value and paste it into the test value input field for testing purposes or might want to copy it somewhere to take note.
