LINQPad Feature Suggestions

  1. I use LINQPad a lot with a lot of proprietary company code and connections. I love the instant share feature, but it would be awesome if we could set a custom share location that wasn't public, for example a custom path to a file share. Thanks!

  2. Lately, it seems every time I open the application, I get a message that a new version has been downloaded, do I want to restart LinqPad. Give me a configuration option where I can say, auto restart Linqpad when new version downloaded on start.

  3. Sorry if not the right spot for this:

    Found a bug this evening:

    This query: Drivers.Where(d => d.UserId == 1)
    Returns this error: "Column is null"

    The generated SQL query is:

    SELECT d."DriversId", d."Aggression", d."CarId", d."CarNumber", d."CreatedDate", d."CustId", d."DriverAge", d."DriverName", d."Optimism", d."PitCrewSkill", d."RosterId", d."Skill", d."Smoothness", d."StrategyRiskiness", d."UpdateDateTime", d."UserId"
    FROM "Drivers" AS d
    WHERE d."UserId" = 1
    GO

    If I run that SQL query in DataGrip, it fails. If I delete the "GO" and run it, the query runs perfectly fine.

    Further, when I test the method from my C# application, the LINQ query:

    Drivers.Where(d => d.UserId == 1) works as…

  4. With the new Uncapsulate method in the beta, I tried dumping the internals of an unfinished task, because I'm trying to learn more about some internals of the tasks and the task scheduler.

    However, it dumps as "awaiting...".

    Could there be a way to force a dump now, even though the task hasn't finished? In my case, it was a task that will never finish because I created it expressly to know what the internals look like before it has completed.

    So this:

    new Task(() => { }).Uncapsulate().Dump();

    will just show "awaiting...".

  7. In a team setting it helps when everyone use the same indentation settings. Visual Studio, Visual Studio Code and other tool already read EditorConfig to set formatting settings.

    It would be nice if LINQPad automatically kept consistent with the configuration of indentation by configuring tab-width and tab/space preferences from EditorConfig as well.

  8. It would be very useful to be able to right click 1 or more rows and have the option to generate an insert script in LINQ.

  9. the tooltip is very (very!) frequently in the way of typing in code.

    first of all, the tooltip should NEVER obscure the cursor (it should just move out of the way), and, to ensure it doesn't have to move out of the way too often, make it appear near-ish (not near) the cursor. Like a couple of lines below the current position of the cursor, so you at least have a few lines of respite, before having to press esc to get rid of that annoying tooltip

  10. It would be nice to have Docker support build-in.
    I mean something similar to VS *.dcproj or just plain Dockerfile.
    With full debugger support through remote debugging;

    It's nice that it's possible to compile to netcore, but it often turns out that something works differently in a linux container than on windows.
    In particular when it comes to data access via System.Data.SqlClient.

    So it would be really cool if we had the opportunity to launch it locally or in the container simply by switching some flag or something.

  11. My "in-house" (ProGet) NuGet package source supports Integrated Windows Authentication (IWA). When I try to connect to it I get an authorized response.

    I can try basic authentication, but I would rather not have LinqPad remember my network credentials.

  12. I love that in the intellisense dropdown I can hit Ctrl+H to filter out the extension methods.

    It would be great if we could have an option to hide the boilerplate GetType() , GetHashCode(), ToString() and Equals(). These exist on every object, so they just pollute the drop down, without telling me anything new. Alternatively, they may be faded out, or something.

    The general problem of intellisense is that between inherited methods and extension methods, you drawn in a sea of dozens of intellisense entries. Somewhere in that haystack is the needle you are looking for. Most of us don't…

  13. I already own a license to LINQPad for Windows, but don't necessarily want to fire up Parallels for a quick thing. Would love to be able to run LINQPad in macOS natively as I move more and more of my development to .NET Core

  14. Hi,

    I absolutely love LINQPad and I use it every day! Great job!

    I was wondering if it would be possible to add code folding support for F# - often times I end up with large scripts and navigating around the code can get difficult without code folding.

    Kind regards,
    George Danila.

  15. If I point LinqPad6 to a new My Queries (and Snippets and Plugins) folders, LinqPad5 is updated to the new folders as well. But I have years worth of queries with .Net Framework Dependencies and would like a clean My Queries structure for LinqPad6 with only .Net Core dependencies.

  16. 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.

  20. 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.
