- collapse the database

I'm guessing here that you've never tried that with 50 - 100 tables in a database, some of the tables expanded so you have 5 rows, not 1, and are not near the top of the tree.

I'm not quite sure what you mean ?  I've tried it in various ways and it
works as described - it will collapse whatever node you have selected.

Its a matter of convenience. If you're down at the bottom its often a lot easier to collapse the lot an open up the ones you want rather than scroll to the right point.

Interestingly enough, and totally subjectively, scrolling seems easier on an XP machine (HP Z8000) rather than a Vista one (Dell Vostro 1700) and on the Dell seems easier if I'm connected via wireless than wired LAN.

So, what's wrong with clicking on the ElevateDB Manager or the desired
session node and then clicking on collapse ?

Because as soon as you click on the little triangle or + it opens the whole lot back up as it was.

But that's a FEATURE!  not a bug.  Smile

Here's a quick way I use quite often: disconnect the database, then
reconnect!  That way, you can have it both ways.

It's also how I refresh the list of things I've added or removed.

Never said it was a bug, and its a nice feature when you want it.

Hadn't tried that but it works - I like the lateral thinking - disconnect the database to close the tree Smiley

That's not what I'm seeing here.  We are calling Collapse for the node with
the Recurse parameter set to True, which means that all of the sub-nodes
will be collapsed also when you click on the Collapse button at the top of
the explorer tree view.
