Parameter Description Example value
Value The new setting.
Pass 1 to enable or 0 to disable.


Returns OK or error.


Set whether to show field and table IDs.
Our plugin can optionally show checkboxes for field and table IDs in database design dialog.

You can check them to show a column with IDs. As querying IDs can take a while, we make those checkboxes and have them off by default.

If IDs can not be found, we show a question mark.
If between two IDs one is missing, we add a star.

Please report sample databases which do not show them so we can fix issues.
