When we add database connections to a query, it is always a specific database connection. Instead, if there is an option to add the connection at the server level to the query and the user can query from different databases that are existing on the same server, then that would be amazing. Right now, I have to do this by connecting to various databases from different query windows, each one linking to a specific database, which is not user-friendly and error-prone.3 votes
I can never remember (nor quickly find) the LINQPad/VS shortcut for returning to the previous location after using F12. Adding it to the Edit|Advanced menu under the F12 related keys would be very helpful.4 votes
EF6 supports .NET Core 3 with the 6.3 release.
We've since been able to port our existing .NET applications to .NET Core. The only regression we're still suffering is that the LINQPad experience is degraded due to there being no EF6 provider.1 vote
Could suggest #load "some file" when pressing Ctrl +. in a class present in another file in the same folder.1 vote
'Add relation' menu item in database tree menu. This will help to add connections which are not excplicitly defined in database.
On clicking Add connection sap bo sttle join dialog will appear where one may define relation with other tables. In many databasese relations may not be defined explicitly. This feature solves the priblem.1 vote
Great software, use it every day. Couldn't do without. I may be on the edge of what's reasonable in usage, but when editing files of 500+ lines some input delay occurs. CPU usage is 100%+ on a Intel i9 when typing. Input delay disappears when setting "Show completion list after typing a letter" to false.3 votes
It's a button that kind of makes the whole thing do a party, you know? Balloons, lively atmosphere, and the like.... Thanks1 vote
Assign shortcut Ctrl+Shift+S to Save As
Microsoft, as a general implementation, does not assign a shortcut key to Save As functionality. But much of the rest of the development/utility community does. The ability to rename a tab is a useful workaround, but I'd prefer consistency with other applications especially in cases where I'm modifying an existing query (that I haven't cloned).3 votes
When working with temporal tables there is no way to use LinqPad to alter / insert entites because it attempts to set values on AsRowStart columns -- and so the insert/updates will fail.
It would be nice to be able to exclude a column from consideration in a context / entity as this would solve this problem.6 votes
With SQL Azure in general and now specifically with the new serverless option it would be great to be able to enable the various ADO.NET and EF Core resiliency options so that you do not get a timeout on startup or when there is a transient failure. Both are just settings for number of times to retry, the retry interval, etc.
For EF Core with SQL you can use something like
sqlServerOptionsAction: sqlOptions =>
In ADO.NET you can do it in the connection string parameters
Thank you0 votes
In the Samples tab, add previous C# version samples. For example:
What's New in C# 7.3, 7.2, 7.1
What's New in C# 6.0
Many times, I reference your samples to help 'jog my memory' for syntax and when/where C# language features were introduced.4 votes
Time and again I hit Alt-Backspace, which is normally Undo (in Visual Studio, Word, etc.; same as Ctrl-Z), but in LinqPad it activates the menu — this throws me off completely! When I finally recover, I've lost my context and forgotten what I was typing.3 votes
When installing LINQPad (6), it would be good for the installer to, either during or post, run a hidden instance that preforms the auto-update.
For those of us who package it in SCCM, this would be of significant benefit.4 votes
It would be nice to be able to edit the appsettings.json file, directly from the query properties windows (F4), comparable to the app.config editor in LINQPad 5/44 votes
LinqPad results window has export options for Word, Excel and HTML. It would be helpful to invoke these from the LinqPad query, maybe as a method in the Util function.
Util.ExportResults(string ExportFileName, ExportType TypeOfExport);
Util.ExportResults(@"c:\MyExport.html", ExportType.HTML);3 votes
It would be great if all trailing whitespace in the query document is removed when saving the file. LINQPad seems to add lots of erroneous whitespace. Eg. if you're working in an indented code block and hit enter multiple times, the empty lines all have erroneous whitespace.3 votes
Dump doesn't extend ReadOnlySpan<char> right now. It'd be nice to have something like
The 'Show Graph' feature is brilliant quickly comparing the relative size of numbers, but it does not work well for negative numbers. It would be great if negative numbers showed extending to the left (and perhaps in red) with positive numbers showing to the right of some imaginary zero-point line. (Thanks for a great product!)3 votes
Please make it easy to find and copy the existing activation code from within Linqpad itself. I was going to examine upgrading to version 6 today but can't as I don't have this code to hand. And I couldn't locate it in Linqpad :(
This feature would probably get a few more impulse purchases before Xmas! :)1 vote
