Toad Data Modeler Scripts

Jun 18, 2018 5:05:48 PM by Quest Software

Here are the scripts available for the Toad Data Modeler.

Script

Description

Override Identity

The script will go through all FK attributes and will automatically select the checkbox Override Identity. After you execute the script, take a look at the Log window where all entities and attributes where the checkbox was selected will be written out.

You can use the script provided that you set autoincrement in a domain, use the domain in PK attribute and create relationship to another entity.  In this case, FK attribute with the domain (and identity) will be created in child entity. However, you need to override the identity. Not to do it for each FK attribute individually, you can run this script.

How to Execute Script:

  1. Unzip the attachment.
  2. Copy and paste the script in the Scripting Window in Toad Data Modeler.
  3. Run the script. (See the Execute button in the Scripting Window toolbar.)

Note:

var Model = app.Models.GetObject(0);
... parameter in GetObject determines with which model the script should work. 0 = first model listed in the Application View, 1 = second model listed in the Application View etc.

Add Prefix to Objects

Prefix defined on the third line of the script will be added to every entity, index and trigger. The prefix will be added only once, which means that if you add another entity to your model later and run the script then, the prefix will be added only to this newly created entity.

You can use the script if you like to add a prefix to every entity, index and trigger of your model.

If you need to add prefix to other objects of your model, feel free to modify the script. For this purpose, we recommend you to have a look at the TDM3 Reference document that is part of the Documentation package of TDM3. (See the Help menu | Reference.)

How to Execute Script:

  1. Unzip the attachment.
  2. Open it e.g. in Notepad.
  3. Copy and paste the script in the Scripting Window in TDM3. (Tools | Scripting Window).
  4. Run the script. (See the Execute button in the Scripting Window toolbar.)

Note:

var Model = app.Models.GetObject(0);
... parameter in GetObject determines with which model the script should work. 
0 = first model listed in the Application View, 1 = second model listed in the Application View etc.

  3. GUIDs of data types can be found:
    1. in package DatabaseOracle10g.txg (for Oracle 10g db) 
      or
    2. you can see them in a script for reverse engineering, which is a script "RE Oracle 10g" (for Oracle 10g db). Please see the GetDataType function in the script.

    var OldModel = app.Models.GetObject(0); // Oracle model [old] var NewModel = app.Models.GetObject(1); // SQL Server model [new]
    ... parameter in GetObject determines with which model the script should work. 0 = first model listed in the Application View, 1 = second model listed in the Application View etc.
