    RDS Dataview menu option missing

    MGTeesAcUk

      In Coldfusion Builder 2, under the menu Window->Show View, the option for RDS Dataview is missing.    The knock on effect is that I can't run any extensions for generating code from database tables becauase I can't browse the datasources.  This option was available a couple of days ago.     It is also missing from the Other... dialog.

      Has anybody else encountered this problem?  Does anyone know of a solution?   Thanks in advance  (PS how come, when using the rich text editor to enter this question, whenever I press return, a new line is added above the current paragraph?)

          I have found the solution...

          Under Window->Customize perspective...

          Select the Menu Visibility tab

          Expand the Window node

          Expand the Show View node

          and there, towards the bottom, is the RDS Dataview menu option, which just needs to be checked.

           

          Of course, this doesn't explain why it went missing in the first place

           

          Hope this helps someone else

            The RDS Dataview not appearing in the sub menu maybe how CFBuilder was installed (plugin vs standalone) or even which perspective you are in. You may want to read up on Eclipse. Their help is great and undestand it's basic concepts like workspace, perspective, plugins, etc....

             

            If you go to windows - show views - ColdFusion all the ColdFusion views will be available.
