Database Properties Window won't open

Postby YiBkdWJiaW4 » Wed, 22 Feb 2006 03:33:27 GMT

I've got Visio 2003 Professional.

I can't get the Database properties window to open.

I've already used it on this machine but since shutting down last night and 
turning it back on again this morning I can't get the database properties 
window to open.  I double click on the tables in my ERD... nothing.  I right 
mouse click on a table and select "Database Properties..." ... nothing.

What's going on?

Be careful if you close the Database properties window you can have it 
again. There is no command to reopen it (certainly a bug). But be glad i 
have a solution for you just delete all the entries in the 
"HKCU\software\microsoft\office\11.0\visio\solution\modeling engine\prop 
window" key of the registry and restart Visio.

4.Missing Text in Database Properties window?


In Visio 2003, I tried to create ER diagram (Database-->Database Model
Diagram). Then I drag something to the canvas, say an Entity object.
Now the Database Properties window cannot show me everything on the
page. For example, select "Primary ID" in the Categories box, under
"Generate as" combo box, it seems to have a check box, but I can only
see its upper bound. There must be some text on the right of that check
box but I can see nothing as it is buried under ground. Such controls
are not fully displayed no matter how I resize the "database
properties" window. My moniter's resolution is 1024X768, using standard
font size.

By the way, the Database Properties window can be pretty large, like
when you select "Indexes" category. However, I cannot find a scroll bar
either if such window is smaller than needed.

Any suggestion how to display those things I cannot see now?


5.Database Properties Window Automation


I have a problem here regarding automation of Database Properties Window of
Visio 2002 Professional.

I am using Visio 2002 Professional Database Model Diagram template for my
database design.
When i drag-drop an Entity shape to the page, a Database Properties Windows
appears at the bottom of the application.Inside that window, i can write my
own column name, notes, primary key etc. for the entity.

But my question is: how can I do all these programably? Is there any way to
access the objects inside the Databae Properties Window by using Automation?
I am using VS.Net(C#) for the Visio Automation application.

I have searched this on web but couldn't find any valueable information on
This problem has been bugged me for several days so now I really hope
somebody could help.
