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.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. LINQPad as a VSCode extension

    I mean, come on... this is a brilliant idea! The beauty and power of VSCode, plus the beauty and power of LINQPad?

    LINQPad could inherit the editor features of VSCode and output its results in a separate pane.

    BANANAS!

    • Enable non-prerelease package to download pre-release

      The nuget package Microsoft.Azure.CosmosDB.Table package version 1.1.3 relies on the prerelease 9.0.0.1-preview of Microsoft.Azure.Storage.Common.

      If I enable include pre-release it doesn't install failing saying that it can't find it.

      Even if I pre-install the pre-release dependency it doesn't allow it.

      A non-prerelease package being a depedency is a documented issue: https://github.com/Azure/azure-cosmosdb-dotnet/issues/385 and the workaround suggests installing the pre-release which suggesting the workaround should work as normal when using nuget.

        • Run a LINQPad script as Administrator (eleveated)

          Some code requires higher privileges. Sure you can run LINQPad itself as Administrator - but then access to e.g. network share might not work and it is better to limit the higher access rights to just the execution of a single script. So an option for a query "Requires Administrative Privileges" would be great. Values: true, false. Maybe an addtional optional would be: Always ask for Administrator priviledges (that is: on every execution elevate again) or "Ask only once". Then only the first execution would request elevation. Further executions would run automatically in an already elevate security context. Also a…

            • Automatic proxy detection not working

              Hello,
              First of all: LINQPad is a GREAT productivity tool and in our company we have many users, using it on a daily base. I love the new feature to great simple chart in the Dump output!

              Here is a little issue. The automatic proxy detection of LINQPad is not working properly. In our environment with a NTLM based authenticating proxy and a proxy.pac file in use it is not working.
              This is most likely due to not setting the HttpWebRequest.Proxy.Credentials property before sending a request.

              Here is a sample C# code where it works and is explained step-by-step:

              //…

              • Add option to to hide System Database

                Allow an option on "Preference -> Advanced" or somewhere similar that we can enable/disable that will hide System Database, such as "master", "model", "msdb", "tempdb". Most of the times, developer are not working with these databases, so there is no point in them displaying under your database server.

                  • Include Optional Parameter for Hyperlinq Tooltip

                    I'm hoping this would be a fairly easy change, but would make my life a lot easier. I dump a lot of abbreviated strings/hyperlinqs which I only sometimes need to differentiate the absolute paths or other truncated details for. It would be great if I could just mouse over the text to get some additional info.

                        • Export as HTML to clipboard

                          I use LinqPad to share data through email all the time. Currently the best way to do this is to export to HTML file, load the file, copy to clipboard, paste to Outlook as email.

                          Could you add a "Export to clipboard as HTML" option to Export drop down menu that would just put the data you are saving to a file on the clipboard?

                          Or add an "Export to clipboard as HTML" to the ▶ menu on each Dump (same drop down as View in Grid, Toggle all graph columns)

                                It should include all namespaces and a full class declaration containing a static Main-Method. Also see here: https://stackoverflow.com/help/mcve

                                  Probably only works in the C# statement(s) mode

                                    Add the possibility of manually installing the last Beta from the user interface.

                                    I install the Beta releases every single time. It would be nice to be able to install the Betas without going to the web site, etc.. manually initiated of course.

                                      • Format SQL results table with one row vertically instead of horizontally

                                        I frequently find myself using plain SQL instead of LINQ (some queries are just easier and faster to write). It would be great to have an option that if the result set only contained one row to format it as a single entity in the vertical format instead of the horizontal format. Essentially, it would look the same way if you were to call Table.First(), where all the properties are listed vertically and you only have to scroll down.
