LINQPad Feature Suggestions

More than 100 LINQPad features are a direct result of customer feedback! This is the official forum for posting and voting on ideas – we want to hear from you!

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Run Linqpad script on Azure

    Would be cool to write a linpad script and then have a menu option to publish as Azure WebJob, preferably with a scheduling mechanism.

    • Add ability to target .NET Core

      .NET Core is gaining adoption, and I find myself needing to experiment on .NET Core more and more, especially since .NET Core has it's own surface area. It be great to be able to do this in LINQPad.

      I don't need LINQPad to run Mac/Linux, just the Windows version to be able to target .NET Core.

        • Method Util.Break should accepts an explaination message to be displayed in red.

          Often in script flow I need to break (usualy after ReadLine is called and user do not want to continue). In those moment, I always display a message in red then break. It make sens to me that the break method does this.

            • Object count when a reactive source is dumped

              When dumping an IEnumerable<T> source, LINQPad also displays the count of items or count of initial items if the number of items exceeds a defined limit. It would be nice to a count (updated live while subscribed) when IObservable<T> sources are dumped.

              • Support undoing the auto-formatting in changing query language

                When I'm writing some C# / F# codes and changing change the query type, the code is auto-formatted for selected language.

                If VB was (mis-)selected, all language keywords are capitalized like 'var x = New Object();', outside the undo buffer.
                There are no recovery way to revert this auto-format. It's very sad behavior.

                If this auto-formatting can be reverted by undo command, it would improve the experience more and more.

                • Allow filtering of the language dropdown

                  If I never use a certain language (e.g. C#, F# or Visual Basic) I should be able to set an option that will exclude options based on that language from the language dropdown.

                    • Auto-Remember Un-saved Files Like Notepad++

                      Install Notepad++ -> Create a New File -> Close Notepad -> No Annoying Save File Dialogs -> Re-open Notepadd++ -> Files are Still there

                      Many use cases.

                      Keeps my flow going if you will

                      • To be able to search/filter in connection combo box

                        with the shortcut Alt+C one is able to drop down the connection combo box. However, when you have several databases it gets too long to scroll using the arrow key. It would be really good if it is possible to do a fuzzy search and shorten the list of choices just as who the intellisense is working today.

                        • Dump should output script line number

                          In scripts with multiple calls to Dump, it is sometimes difficult to resolve Dump output with the specific Dump call that generated that output. If the Dump output contained the line number that originated that output, it would help in this regard.

                          • Run (just) scripts thru command line via Mono

                            Maybe *lprun.exe* can be more easily adapted to run under Mono than the full GUI app. It would be *fantastic* to just be able to run scripts via Mono.

                            • Add option to include column names for "Open selected cells in Excel"

                              "Open in Excel" also copies column names from the output, but "Open selected cells" does not.
                              It can be very handy if the latter could also copy column names, independent of what has been selected (cell, cells, columns or rows). Of course only column names of cells to copy have to be included.
                              Add as an option (because it may not be wanted every time).

                                • [BUG] IL View can't display non-ASCII chars (in ldstr, etc.)

                                  IL View can't display non-ASCII characters (such as ldstr "日本語").

                                  It's caused by font-family setting in CSS for IL View: 'Consolas' is hardcoded.

                                  The problem may solve by specifying fallback fonts (such as 'Meiryo', it can display CJK and more glyphs). In addition, It might be good that IL View refer 'Custom stylesheet' in the Preferences.

                                      It would be great for Linux and Macintosh developers to be able to use LINQPad :)

                                      • Reference .NET Core csproj file directly like a NuGet package

                                        I would like to be able to reference a .NET Core csproj file from LINQPad, similar to how NuGet references work. LINQPad could read the package references from the csproj file and add those NuGet packages, then it could locate the dll that is output by the csproj and add that as a reference. This would make testing changes made in a project with LINQPad extremely simple. Currently I have to package the project, move the package to a local NuGet feed, clear the LINQPad NuGet cache for that package, and readd the package reference in LINQPad.

                                        • Reverse Query

                                          So I have data executed and in the results window I would like to click on a single row or column and get the query that I would use to get to that position and use it in c# code.

                                          Would be good for quickly generating a query for C# code.

                                          I have used this in XMLspy to copy an xpath value to clipboard by just pointing at an XML element
