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.

        • Add TimeSpan timeout parameter to Util.ReadLine<TResult> method. Add CancellationToken parameter to Util.ReadLineAsync<TResult> method.

          I've implemented a Task timeout extension to abandon long running tasks. When that task is setup to check for a cancellation token's IsCancellationRequested property the task can finish appropriately.

          Currently when calling Util.ReadLine or when awaiting Util.ReadLineAsync the task gets abandoned but not cancelled. The user prompt box remains open and I haven't found a way to cancel\remove\reset it.

          A cancellation timeout (or cancellation token on the async method) would be useful for automatically selecting the default value after a specified timeout has elapsed. Execution could then be terminated or continued as the script has been directed.

          • Add "Camel Hump" support to IntelliSense

            This is a feature of ReSharper that makes using IntelliSense much more intuitive. This is also called "Match middle of the identifiers".

            Essentially, if I am trying to type 'SqlCommand' I can simply type 'SCom' and it will show up in IntelliSense.

            • Additional mouse selection support

              Add additional support for selecting text with the mouse that works the same as most Windows applications:

              In query editor pane:

              - Triple-click = select entire line
              - Triple-click + drag = select multiple entire lines

              In SQL results view pane:

              - Double-click = select entire word
              - Double-click + drag = select multiple entire words
              - Triple-click = select entire cell contents

              • Trace tab with Logging Output Support

                Optionally support a separate trace tab as often have a lot of trace output and would like a way to hide the noise.

                Additionally, would be nice to support some basic formatted output with support for Info/Debug/Warn/Error and date/time... e.g. color changes and minor style differences.

                • Fix Memory leak / program hangups

                  As I can't vote anymore, I create this new entry. ;-)
                  When I open a Linqpad instance, use it during a couple of minutes and let opened during a couple of hours to come back using it, I noticed the memory consumption raised a lot for doing nothing because I was not using it.

                  • Show OPCodes in IL listing

                    When viewing the IL listing for a piece of code, it would be nice to see the actual opcodes for educational purposes. Or at least an option to turn that on or off.

                    • Make Dump() function in C# statement mode grey

                      It's kinda getting into the way for samples. Not a very big deal though, but if there's an option to grey out the Dump() function, the main statement would be a little bit more clear.

                      • allow users to login to Linqpad forum using Google

                        I wanted to post a serious performance issue (all the time, even with the beta) when running linqpad in parallels on mac. Resizing window hangs the machine from 1 to 3 seconds. Anyway, I couldnt post this feedback or create an issue on Linqpad forum as that requires me to login using OpenID, which I don't use.

                        • Ability to set environmental variables

                          A way to easily set environmental variables. New wave of cloud apps/frameworks seem to leverage this as a way of injecting values into the app.

                          • hot.exit like visual studio code

                            Allow exiting the application without saving current queries and retaining them when linqpad is reopened

                            • Copy for markdown in query results

                              I was making a GitHub issue for some problematic production data and it was a pain to take the copied Linqpad query results and finagle it into the markdown table format.
                              I'd like the Copy for Markdown feature to work for query results.

                              • This schema is not supported

                                If a Schema Metadata contais properties with a unsupported characfters like "third-nationality" , then linqpad is unable to continue and display the error "The schema is not supported" . It should be nice to bypass these fields and continue. Notice that the schema , a Successfactors was correct until , they added 3 proeperties. I admit that it s on SAP side to update the schema , but I dont think they will do it .

                                  Linqpad needs a feature to export and import settings. I'm about to reinstall windows and I really don't want to setup all of the connections, etc. that I've created in LinqPad after re-installing it.

                                  • HTML export should contain expandable tables

                                    The LINQPad output window allows tables to be collapsed/expanded. Especially in nested tables this is very useful. Having everything expanded makes it difficult to read the tables.

                                    The HTML export should have the same expand/collapse feature.

                                    Both the export from LINQPad GUI as well as LPRun html should accept two different dump levels. One for the actual data and one for the default expand level when the html file is loaded into browser.

                                      • Allow to enable "check arithmetic overflow/underflow"

                                        Like the checkbox in VS Build/Advanced.

                                        • 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.
