How to display the actual database?

I would like to see the database I'm logged in.. How to do?

I'm a bit confused. I understood the question to mean "see the database structure and the contents of the tables", but the answers so far indicate that others interpret it as "the name of the database". If I am right and it is unclear, could you please clarify your question (either name of database or database structure and content)? Of course, my English is not without its flaws so I may be wrong.

Active Developer Mode:

Now you can read the db name in the setting menu:

or in the browser URL:


You can see on your terminal:: 2013-04-04 11:07:07,803 8741 INFO nbh werkzeug: - - [04/Apr/2013 11:07:07] "POST /web/dataset/call_kw/stock.config.settings:default_get HTTP/1.1" 200 Here "nbh" is database name..!!

When using openERP V7 from the trunk, and using Firefox (at least in 19.x), I see the name of the DB in the address bar, without enabling developer mode or anything.

If you want to display it on the screen, you probably have to modify some XML file (or even python code).
