Hi,

This suggestion applies to any of the RG tools really. What would be great is if you had a separate window in the GUI which always displayed the full command-line for the tool to process whatever options you currently had selected in the GUI. For example if I am in SQL Compare, as I select/deselect tables for inclusion, they are automatically updated as /Include or /Exclude options in the command window for a synchronise command. I realise not all GUI-selectable options are possible from the command line but for the ones that are it would save a lot of typing and mistakes when writing scripts to control the tools from batch/powershell files.

Thanks for your post.

You're not the first person to suggest this and I'll certainly add your request to the list, however is there any reason why creating a project through the GUI with all of your relevant inclusions and exclusions contained within that, and then referencing the project file with the /PR switch wouldn't work for you?

Pete
