The Database Viewer supports the following functionality:

  • Database Explorer—The Database Explorer pane displays information about open database connections. You can view and edit data, add or remove database tables, and open or close database connections.
  • Database Viewer Tabs—The Database Viewer contains Edit Data and Execute SQL tabs, which are associated with an open database connection. All operations performed in each tab execute on the database connection associated with that tab. The connection you select from the connection list when you create a tab becomes the connection associated with that tab.
  • Binary Data Viewer—The Binary Data Viewer allows you to view binary data that has been logged to the database. You can view the data as a table, a graph, or as the layout in memory.
