Hi

I pressed some combination of keys in SQL Server Management Studio (i dont have a clue what I did)

and it created this in comments in the Query editor window:

/*

AAAA AAAA AAAA AAAA RRRRR GGGG HH HH ######
AA AA AA AA AA AA AA AA RR RR GG GG HH HH ######
AA AA AA AA AA AA AA AA RR RR GG HH HH ####
AAAAAA AAAAAA AAAAAA AAAAAA RRRRR GG GGG HHHHHH ##
AA AA AA AA AA AA AA AA RR RR GG GG HH HH
AA AA AA AA AA AA AA AA RR RR GGG G HH HH ##

*/


I wonder if some frustrated MS developer put this in.

Or could it be something to do with my RedGate SQL Prompt software - ive never seen it before?

Does anyone know what key combination i need to press to get this really useful feature working regularly?! Very Happy

Are there any other quirky treasures the RedGate team have put in SQL for us to find?

Cheers
Rich

Thanks for your post.
If you check in Snippets section SQL Prompt --> Options --> Snippets you will find a snippet called 'yell' :D
Kindly let us know what exactly you key combination did you used and waht output was you expecting.

I know this is an ancient thread, but I just ran into this as well. It's not a problem, but I have no idea how I did it. I think it was a sequence of some of the following in some order: ctrl, shift, up, esc in quick motion (mis key). It definitely was not 'yell' tab.

It's funny when it comes up (2nd time ever), but I have no idea how I did it. SQL Prompt Pro 5.2.0.5.

From the query editor window, click ctl-space to bring up the SQL prompt window, type "yell" and hit enter.

Yes, I see that does it also. However, my key combination and most likely the combination of the original poster was not y-e-l-l anything. The 2 times it has happened to me, I was no where near those letters.

I had the same thing happen, but through a little trial and error, I figured out what the combination of keystrokes was...for me at least. I had typed "CASE" followed by a space, which brought up the intellisense dropdown. Next, I pressed Ctrl-DownArrow, which switched the intellisense window to "snippets" mode. Next, I pressed UpArrow, which selected the bottom item in the list, which just happens to be "yell". Lastly, I pressed Enter.
