Subject IBUtils - free table links viewer - new version
Author aleskahanek
I would like to announce new version of IBUtils. There are some
improvements - notes and custom links. Download and details at

New features
- Notes - you can add a custom "Note" directly to model to enter some
description. Note can be selected, moved, etc., it behaves in the
same way
as regular database table object. Right click on the model desktop and
choose "Add note" menu item.
- Custom links - you can now create your own links between tables and
notes mentioned above. Click on the "Add custom relation" toolbutton
in the
main toolbar - the cursor changes to indicate the "Add custom link
mode, then click on some field of some table, cursor changes to "Add
link to" mode, then click on some field of another table and the
custom link
is now created. Custom links are saved in the *.tbl file.
This is very handy when you do not use foreign key constraints in your
database and still want to show the link (obviously when the foreign
index has low selectivity)
- Link color can be now specified in the Options dialog box

Bug fixes
- Fixed bug "Token unknown ..." when running against Interbase 6.0.
- Fixed cursor flickering when table link was focused.

Because of the new "Notes" feature the object model has to be
splitted to
general ancestor and table plus note descendant. This required lots
of code
changes and there could be new bugs and the application can be

The application IBUtils is designed for simlifying database design for
Interbase and Firebird databases by showing the links between the
tables in
your database visually, like some CASE tools do. It does not allow
editing, it is a read only tool. Every change to the tables in your
made by other tools can be refreshed by one mouse click.
