PhpMyAdmin now has basic support for column comments,
which is very welcome:
However, this only extends to readability when
listing the data dictionary (in db_datadict.php ).
Given that MySQL 4.1 now supports native column
comments, it would be very useful indeed to be able
to add/edit these directly in MySQL.
1) It would certainly be good to show them when
listing the table properties:
2) However, more importantly, the ability to create
the comments in the first place, in
3) and when editing column names, as in tbl_alter.php
Comments seem to be very much the same as any other
of the metadata (like NULL,Extra,Default, etc)
associated with a column, so presumably the code need
not be too difficult to introduce.
I for one would find this an extremely useful
addition to PhpMyAdmin.
