Feature Request: multiple connected servers

Postby marc » Mon Nov 10, 2014 12:36 pm


yet another one.. It would be cool if QPad could connect to multiple servers at once. Like each editor tab has it's own connection. That way I could use for example "test" and "dev" together. I know that I could start multiple instances of QPad, but I think it is less convenient and they all start with the same opened scripts, so I would need to close some in one window and not the other and so on...

Hi, Marc!

Short answer is "not gonna happen", but let me point you to the very useful (if you'll read it top to bottom that is :)) post of the forum viewtopic.php?f=4&t=517

You'll see that there are two ways to do what you want (more or less):
1) would be to use "Switch connections on pane activation" option in Editor tab settings
2) would be to use "Launch QPad" item from Server tree context menu or make bat/cmd containing server and/or profile name (that one to keep your settings & opened files tabs separate, Launch QPad is using both behind the scenes)

As to why I don't want to maintain connections to multiple servers at once - the answer is simple, taking into account all other panes and debugger, it'll create much more problems & confusion from the usability standpoint than it could possibly solve :)
