Object Explorer doesn’t populate the entire tree in memory, unlike visual studio’s solution explorer. It wouldn’t know if database “MyDatabase” existed until you expanded the Databases node.
There are third party plugins that provide this type of functionality, I believe, by downloading a bunch of data in the background and exposing a search.Eric Renken commented
Doesn't almost everyone expand out the database list anyway? We use SQL Azure DBs and Elastic Pools. I have about 5,000 DB on one server. I NEED a fast way to search for databases. You basically have it when I click on Databases I can click the filter button and enter a name to value for the name contains. Why can't you just take this to a higher level, so I don't have to click on the filter button and open this big dialog?Eric Renken supported this idea ·
