  1. Some kind of mechanism that stores the result of an expression into a variable or RAM storage... that can be used later on.

    Lets say i have a heavy Linq statement that spends 30 seconds to finish - it would be cool to store that data in a variable of some kind that i can call later on.

    "Live objects" might be the name of such...

  2. Add c++ as one of the available languages. Perhaps this lies outside of the intended scope of LINQPad, but a lot of people use it as a snippet compiler, I know I do..

  3. They haven't gotten it right in over 10 years! In 2010 it got a little better. But they need your asynchronous search capability!

  4. Add some level of source control. I would like to have the gists API integrated directly into LINQpad. Because basically gists are scripts.

  5. Can't safely call Write on the TextWriter provided by LinqPad's CreateXhtmlWriter when debugging. If any properties within the object being written throw an exception, the debugger catches this exception and writing ceases.

    The only workarounds are to 'Continue' after each exception (which is tedious if many are thrown), or to disable CLR exceptions and then re-enable them when done.

    It's not possible to have the object's properties not throw exceptions, as they are lazy loaded and will throw when certain fields are not initialised.

  6. It would be nice to be able to show the current editor line with a different background colour. The standard tooltip colour would be fine but make it customisable if you really want :-)

  7. One of the most missing features in linq. Allowing to bulk update/delete/insert rows (maybe as an extension lib like PredicateBuilder) would be absolutely awsome!
    Thanks

  8. A list of previously executed statements and expressions is a useful addition to the My Queries pane or as a separate tab entry. It would be nice that this history can also be queried like the examples.

  10. Please consider NuGet integration.

    I would also suggest changing LINQPad scripts to not just be XML files but indeed something like a tar'd/zip'd archive of XML and DLL files with NuGet integration and update mechanism.

    This would be super compelling and useful and much more light-weight than using NuGet from VS.

  11. When I have a "Customers" table, please support having "Customer" entities.

    At the moment, I have the "Customers"-table in the tree view with a "Customers" entity data type, which is bad.

  13. It's a very common problem to have to combine CSV files together. A data context that allowed you to add multiple CSV files and generate a static acessor off column names would be incredible useful

  14. I would like to be able to take data from multiple sources and munge them together, but right now only a single context is allowed. I guess you could do this with mega data context that references other data contexts.

  16. I can effectively do this using export to Excel and then select all / copy. But I do a lot of statistical analysis and need to copy data results to and from other programs. They support importing from the clipboard, but the clipboard text must be comma or tab separated (or even fixed--parsable in a line-per-row fashion--i.e., not markup).

    It would also be nice if you could suppress the summary line.

  17. i.e. Always Show Full List (or press Ctrl+Space or Ctrl+H). Currently you MUST press those keys to get a full list. It would be nice to have an option to show the full list every time.

  18. Similar to notepad++ add some context menu items for the tabs to include

    -> Copy full filepath to clipboard
    -> Copy filename to clipboard
    -> Copy DirectoryPath to clipboard

  19. It would be nice if it was possible to add parameters to a linqpad query so that when you run it you are prompted to supply a parameter value. I realise I can just edit the contents of the file with a new value, but being able to treat a linqpad query as a small program that takes some parameters and then returns results would be useful.
