LINQPad Feature Suggestions

Categories

  1. It would be nice to click on a template query and get a new copy of that query, rather than edit the query itself. Perhaps a right-click on the query in the "My Queries" tab would let you open/clone the query without having to open the original, clone it, close it, then do what you wanted to do in the first place.

    FYI, I can't live without this LinqPad.

  2. Allow to create files with the .linqbat extension and the ability to run them in the command line or double clicking them without opening the full LINQPad UI.

  3. Make it clearer that autocompletion does not work with VB, before one commits to a purchase.

  4. This will be handy when using LinqPad to bring back Simple data and will avoid using MS Word and Copy / Paste. I use LinqPad for bringing back the results of massive varchar fields because SSMS doesn't.

  5. We do it now through a secondary dll and machine.config for configuration. Would prefer to reference the service directly. This would also include the ability to use configuration files.

  6. For example, when querying with a group by clause with multiple keys, shift+click the Key field make all Key properties collapse or expand.

  10. It would be nice if the tabs had icons showing if they were SQL or code files. If you have mixed tabs of both, it would be much faster to find the query you're looking for.

  11. I use linqpad to execute scripts on servers on the cloud. I copy linqpad.exe plus a few useful .net assemblies onto each server via script.

    I dont want to have to manually add in the references each time I load linqpad onto a server. It would be much more useful ( and mistake proof) if I can simply do a deploy to my server which included a linqpad.config with the references to my utility assemblies as well as extra namespaces. Please comment if this is not clear and I'll elaborate further.

  13. It would be nice to have the tab name be the name of the table when running the pre-defined right-click queries instead of query n.

  15. Currently if I have a base class with name and age, then inherit from that to add address. Then create a list of these objects, the output is the reverse of what is expected. I would expect the base class members to be first in the results but they are actually last. Example:
    void Main()
    {
    var p = new List<Person>();

    p.Add(new Person{ Name = &quot;Joe&quot;, Age = 25, Address = &quot;Someplace in Australia.&quot;});  
    

    p.Add(new Person{ Name = "Ben", Age = 30, Address = "Someplace in Australia."});

    p.Dump();
    }

    class PersonBase
    {
    public string Name { get; set; }
    public…

  16. When testing our application's objects via LP, our System.Diagnostic.Debug.WriteXXX messages are being captured in the Results window. Is there any way of disabling this feature in LP?

  18. Display stored procedures ONLY, better to to define an additional filter (e.g. stored procs starting with "sp1")

  20. It would be handy if LINQPad closed to the system try so that it could be get around all the time. It's a great lightweight tool for trying out things.
