Extended Properties in Object Explorer Details – Vote on Connect

After a discussion with a friend of mine, I’ve opened a suggestion on Connect to request to have Extended Properties visible in the main Object Explorer Details window.

This will be especially useful for creating self-documenting database, since that window can easily provide additional information about, for example, column in a table or in a view and so on.

Just image to have all the available Extended Columns in this list to be selected:

Capture

If columns’ Extended Properties will contain a Description, violà, here you’ll see it for each column. Useful IMHO. If you agree with me please vote here:

Why stop there?  Why not just ask for the viewable columns to be configurable like it is in many other cases?
