LINQPad Feature Suggestions

Categories

  1. Recently, .NET 5 released with an native ARM64 on Windows. If LINQPad supports native ARM64 support, it will be great.

  2. I write a lot of Dump(), to output variables temporarily, and finally remove them.
    It would be nice to turn on/off a Dump() without edit code.

    Please highlight the Dump() method, swith to DumpOff() when double click it, and output nothing.

  3. I've made a Class and in the Property Getter i'm calling Debugger.Break()

    the breakpoint is not hit when displaying a list of these class instances.

  4. It would be awesome if Linqpad supported anchor <a> elements in XML documentation. Whilst it's not an element listed in the XML documentation comments (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/csharp/programming-guide/xmldoc/), it is supported by Visual Studio and JetBrains Rider, and is useful for linking out to external documentation.

  5. When launching LINQPad, it opens to a new empty query. I'd like that query to be automatically closed/discarded when I open a pre-existing query instead (from the My Queries panel).

  6. Most of my LINQPad scripts do not use a database connection... so I'd like to be able to set a preference to close the connection panel (top left).

  7. It would be really awesome if we could set custom font size for the the result window.

    I know there is option to increase/decrease fonts, but it would be great if I could simply set the size/font that works for me and not have to change it manually for each Result window.

  9. Some NuGet packages load native assemblies at run-time that are expected to be in a specific folder relative to the root folder. This makes LINQpad incompatible with these packages as LINQpad does not maintain the folder structure.

    Having the ability to explicitly add a folder rather than a file to a query will allow you to maintain the folder structure the NuGet package expects.

    Ex. https://github.com/charlesw/tesseract/issues/484
    I also had to implement a similar workaround to use some methods in the ML.NET libraries (tensorflow related).

  11. Rather than immediately downloading, have a web view of the uploaded script, with a download button, so people can see what they're downloading.

    Ideally, it would summarize the header information and syntax-highlight the code.

    Additionally, add an option in the File Menu to "Load from URL" which will automatically download the file.

  12. If I recall, the results tab is just a WebBrowser from the System.Windows.Forms namespace, which is just IE. However, there's now WebView2, which is a browser that's chromium based: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/webview2/ . I have installed the Canary build of edge and would love to try out LINQPad with that as the results window instead of the IE-based version.

  13. For a variety of reasons, I am not able to use LP6 on one of my machines because I am not able to leverage .NET core, and so I use LP5 but I miss things like F12 navigating to My Extensions (instead of opening ILSpy), Util.HighlightIf(bool,object), DumpContainer.AppendContent, and #load. I LOVE LINQPad and use it daily (even for personal projects and reasons), and I would use LP6 everywhere if I could, but alas I cannot. I understand if there are reasons this won't work, but as a single user, I would absolutely LOVE it if some of those features could…

  14. I have hundreds of LINQPad scripts organized in folders. However it's still not that convenient to open an existing script. Need to go to appropriate folder and then search among the files. Don't remember the names exactly so sometimes it takes some effort. It would be nice to have equivalent of ReSharper CTRL + SHIFT + T option that would search through all files and I could enter just a single word or any subset of the file name.

  15. If you have them both running, its hard to tell which is which when looking at the task bar. Different Icons would make that distinction easier. I've seen that workout out well for VS Code or Visual Studio.

  16. Would be nice to track the amount of memory allocated when a script runs (similar to MemoryDiagnoser in BenchmarkDotNet)

  19. Visual Studio does this with a little yellow vertical line beside the line number. It's very handy since one may wish to save changes if they are permanent; on other occasions the change is just temporary (eg the date in a SQL query) and can be discarded when closing.

    PS - it would be great to be able to search these Feature Suggestions to see if there's already a relevant topic that can be updated. I'm afraid I gave up looking after page 4.

  20. Having a list of rows in the grid it would be convenient to be able to rapidly view a right clicked row as a single row. I.e. like when doing .First(t=> t.Id==9) in the query.
