LINQPad Feature Suggestions

  1. Sometimes the natural grid display is too short to display the sort indicator after the header is clicked. This requires the user to expand the column header manually in order to see the hidden indicator. This could be done automatically when a column header is clicked.

  2. I tried to use System.ServiceModel.Primitives NuGet package and specifically the SynchronizedCollection<T>. However after installing the package I'm getting the following error when declaring variable of type SynchronizedCollection<string>:

    CS0433 The type 'SynchronizedCollection<T>' exists in both 'System.Private.ServiceModel, Version=4.7.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a' and 'System.ServiceModel.Primitives, Version=4.7.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a'

    The same works fine in Visual Studio (.NET Core Console App project).

    LINQPad 6.8.1.

  3. While text scales nicely, icons look awful on a 4K monitor.

  5. Just a boolean indicating whether the current query is "dirty" or saved: basically wired to the star on the tab title.

    My use case is that my script, after executing, saves its artifacts and itself in a zip file (for posterior usage). It would help me if the first lines of my script would be "Oops, you didn't save the current query -> return".

    Thank you.

  6. 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.

  7. For example JSON/XML/CSV/Excel data used for testing out a snippet or library.
    Just for the overall convenience... and when you get back 6 months later and look for the input data!

  8. This should be available in this software. As someone that has years of experience in SQL, I find LINQ syntax to be appalling and extremely confusing. I bought the professional version in hopes that this software implemented this feature, it does not, and yes I read the previous request and your reply to the user about VB6 to C# 4 comparison but highly disagree with your decision.

  9. Utils.SaveResultWindowImage(string filename, int x, int y, int width, int height)

    This can then be used as a simple image rendering service.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. The EF Core DbContext that supports the DbContextOptions<TContext> does not support any other configuration options -- just the connection string. I really need it to allow Lazy Loading supports and Detailed Errors.

    THANK YOU.

  13. Would be great if LINQPad supported WIndows 10 ARM64 build.
    As of Feb 2020 .NET 5 preview doesn't support Windows Forms and WPF and will be released in Nov 2020 and .NET 3.1 doesn't support ARM64 Windows devices at this time.
    Thanks

  15. title pretty much explains it, but in SQL Management Studio there is an option to filter the listed tables you see in the left handed tree view by applying a filter to match with

  16. When using the linqpad driver with EF Core and provide my own assembly, i want to quickly change the connectionstring via the connection dropdown.

    I could add every database to a own connection entry, but i want to specify the databaseserver and then quickly change the database.

  17. 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.

  18. Could suggest #load "some file" when pressing Ctrl +. in a class present in another file in the same folder.

  19. 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.

    Example:
    Util.ExportResults(string ExportFileName, ExportType TypeOfExport);
    Util.ExportResults(@"c:\MyExport.html", ExportType.HTML);
