How I Got SQL Intellisense Working in Microsoft Query Analyzer

Length: 4:14
Shown at PDC05: Yes

The video explains how I got Intellisense to work inside Microsoft's Query Analyzer by writing a program that uses low level system hooks and the ANTLR parser to intercept Ctrl-Space parse what has been typed in, and use system tables to show Intellisense-style popups inside the standard Query Analyzer.
