Would it be possible to have a "cancel" button somewhere while the "Hold tight while we fetch your results..." text is being displayed?
The thing is, I occasionally (rarely, very rarely!) make a mistake.
Specifically, sometimes I click "Run Query" in the Data Explorer, and then immediately realize I've left something out, or misspelled something in a
WHERE clause, etc - some simple mistake.
Considering the timeout for queries is 2 minutes, that can be rather frustrating (especially while tweaking a complicated query). It would be great to be able to cancel that query, make the quick fix, and resubmit.
I'd be okay with the "cancel" button not being available until a certain amount of time had passed without results from the query (5, 10, 15 seconds? Anything less than 2 minutes, I suppose).
Oh, and Tim Stone can't complain about this, because it was totally his idea.
TOP(n)all the time, and then... this.
