Sort order in project browser: not case sensitive
« on: November 17, 2011, 10:59:23 am »
It is possible to make the sort order NOT case sensitive in the project window. This would be very useful for reverse engineering databases (se SQL Server)
Orthogonality rules
Using EA12.1 (1229) on Windows 10 Enterprise/64 bit. Repositories in SQLServer2014 R2 & Access2003/JET4.0

(Different DBs behave different in respect to case. Some are case sensitive per se while others are case insensitive.

Indeed, but the UI can moderate this behaviour.
I'd like to see an option for case insensitivity in the prohect broswer (and anywhere else where sorting occurs)

I'm trialing the software and already this is very irritating.

Hi,

I created a simple example and indeed get the following order: Class1, Class2, class1, class2, class3.

You can achieve a non case sensitive sorting on the elements names e.g. DB Tables with eaUtils free addin -> simply run the sort by Name on a package with the default non case sensitive values setting. I ran a test and get the expected order: class1, Class1, class2, Class2, class3
