  1. I'm switching Word Wrap flag very often. When there is a big string in the Editor, I have to switch between Enable Word Wrap and Disable Word Wrap. So it would be better providing Keyboard shortcuts (Ctrl-E-W) or have a button on the toolbar.

  2. There are many times that I'm using Linqpad to investigate sparsely populate objects, such as from a database row with 5/100 columns having a non-null value.

    In these cases, my results pane is littered with uninteresting information.

    I propose a feature allowing me to exclude rendering dump output for properties having a null value. For example: https://imgur.com/a/nkHqn47

  4. Due to stress, evil mice and physical handicaps please add a confirmation box that verifies if the user wants to close more than one query, with option to shelve to a Shelve List and the ability to check not to be asked again for the very brave persons out there.

  5. I have some databases that have hundreds of tables within them. When they are showing, it's very time consuming to have to scroll all the time to see other databases or connections. To alleviate this problem, I would suggest that the top item that is visible would always be the item one level above.
    For example, if I'm looking in the middle of a list of tables... the first line would always be "tables". If I scrolled up and selected "tables", the first line would then be the parent of "table", which would be the database.

    In other words, I…

  6. In LinqPad we can use the +/- buttons in the UI to hide blocks of code; whole methods, ELSE blocks etc.

    I would love to see this extended to the following:

    1. New Lists. I don't always want to see all the new items added to a new list, so seeing just Options = new List<Thing> is fine rather than
    Options = new List<Thing>
    {
        new Thing(),
        new Thing(),
        .......
    }
    
    1. Property Initialization. Similarly, I don't always want to see all the properties that are set during an object's initialization. So seeing it collapsed to Person p = new() is fine…

  8. There are some instances where I want to have more control of the HTML formatting in the results window. For example, I am testing generating some HTML emails and need a blank slate to see what it would look like. I would like the option to not have ANY of the default styles added to the results window. I can always copy the ones I need into the stylesheet editor. I hope this would be a simple feature to add :) A Util method to dump into a new Results window tab (like the data grid does) but with no…

  9. Suggest Ctrl+Shift+PgUp/PgDn, as that seems a popular choice, both in browsers and Notepad++.

    Thanks.

  11. When the Explorer View is too narrow (i.e. removed to occupy as less screen space as it is possible), I cannot save the code by pressing Ctrl + S. My LINQPad version is 7.4.9 (X64) for Windows. Please see the screen recording that shows the issue:

    https://1drv.ms/v/s!Asp69p7IB51WkAFhnqj9vmUw72JS?e=2JvozE

    Can this be fixed in the next version?

  12. .NET MAUI is an optional workload starting .NET 6. Add an option to enable .NET MAUI in a query file to load supported libraries in those queries.

  13. Similar to the RedGate SQL Prompt function "Copy as IN Clause".

    To use this, you return results into the grid. Then select a range of values in one column and select "Copy as new List<string>" from the context menu. It then copies the C# code for creating a List<string> with those values to the clipboard. For example:

    new List<string> {
    "OMO-155165",
    "PQJ-155177",
    "ABI-155153",
    "HCI-155167"
    }

  14. I do a lot of messing around in LINQPad, and sometimes I get a result I want to process further... but I didn't remember to export the results in my script. I can use the 'Export to CSV file' or 'Export to HTML file' options to get the data out and hope that I don't need any collection contents, but then I have to parse the CSV back into an object list in the next script.

    Could we please get an 'Export to JSON file' option that uses System.Tex.Json.JsonSerializer to create an export file? Indented formatting would be nice but…

  15. I can add a reference to an assembly that's blah.exe but I can't consume types inside it. If I copy blah.exe to blah.dll everything's fine, but that would appear to be a dull and unnecessary (and forgettable) step.

    If there's a valid reason why this can't be delivered then fine, I'll live with it, but - granted I know diddly-squat about LinqPad internals - it doesn't seem like it'd be hard to add.

  16. The Results window gets cluttered as I debug my code, especially with the Dump results.

    Please provide a menu option to clear out the Results pane.

  17. For LINQPad controls : add a ScrollIntoView() function. This would cause the query window to scroll to wherever it landed on the Dump() output.

  18. I am a huge fan of the new ContinueButton().Dump().Wait approach found online

    however when using it for something that enumerates a large list, it would be really nice to be able to attach a keyboard event to it in the output window so i don't necessarily have to click to trigger it.

  19. As it stands you need to define a style using Util.HtmlHead.AddStyles
    I would love to be able to say:
    new Button("Do Something", ...) { CssStyle = "margin-left: 5px;" };

  20. When LINQPad hits a hard limit on output size, the query continues
    execution but no longer renders .Dump() output.
    The idea is to pause execution & add a 'clear output window' hyperlink to the "Limit of query" message to allow script to continue.

    This could be an option in case people dont want this behavior.
