  1. LINQPad currently defaults to C# Expression. I would prefer VB Expression. If you default to last language everyones happy.

  3. A driver or mode that executes a program but does not execute any LINQ to SQL changes but instead captures these in a new SQL script you can save.

  5. The enhanced search for assembly references is perfect. It would be great if VS2010/F# adopted it like you built it.

    It would be great to have an auto update on reference version that are no longer found. I frequently update the Rx.NET references and it's pain to update every single .linq files.

  6. Allow users to submit scripts to a LINQPad online script repository and have ratings and view counts to sort by.

    Turn on "ambient intellisense" (ambient autocomplete) for extension methods not downloaded but provided on the Web. (Build and maintain index on client). And a magic key combo to automatically download that extension and any dependencies it has on other ambient code. Show reviews, ratings and view count in client.

  7. Don't block the UI thread when doing some expensive work. I'm using LINQPad at work and at home (ironically I paid for my home license but am using the unregistered version one at work) and at work I connect to large databases with thousands of tables and LINQPad takes a long time to "deal" with scripts connecting to these kinds of databases but it would help with a progress bar or at least some notion of "I'm busy" rather than the ghost whitening of the UI.

    Otherwise thanks for a superb product. :-)

  8. implementing auto-conversion from c# to VB when switching the input-code-type would be the tip of the iceberg for this great thought through linkpad-tool - but probably also really challenging for master Joe
    But also without that - Thanks for that really cool working- and education-tool
    regards from germany

  9. It would be great if the Ctrl+E SSMS shortcut would be enabled as an alternative to F5. It's easier to reach and makes sense (E for Execute).

  10. Sometimes it's very time-consuming for LINQPad to automatically repopulate the schema/datacontext with each run of a query. It would be great if there were a manual refresh mode, with the option to manually refresh the schema. (I'd even be able to live without the ability to trigger a refresh in a Query window, as the workaround presumably would be to save and reload the query, or to clone it.)

    Great product. I purchased autocomplete I love this thing so much, but I'd love it more with this feature.

    Thanks!

  12. Pretty simple - lets me keep my hands closer to the money spot on the keyboard. I find F5 to be disrupting to my keyboard position.

  13. I use LINQPad as a replacement for SMSS and would LOVE the Autocomplete to work for SQL (e.g. type "SELECT Orders." and upon typing the "." character all of the fields of Orders should up in intellisense).

  14. Great stuff, I'm using it to test a REST service - but it requires a querystring parameter for the apikey. It would be great to have a collection of querystring params that are appended to the url.

  17. When I copy/paste from Visual Studio to LINQPad (and back) I have to rename all the table variables to the real table names.
    If I could alias a table, e.g. "Products" into "myProductsTable" the transition from VS to LP would be smooth.

  18. Currently when mulitple columns of data are copied from LINQPad and pasted to a Google Spreadsheet they result in a single column of data, whereas pasting to Excel preserves the columns.

    Supporting Google Spreadsheets would save us Google Apps/Docs users from the extra step of copying or exporting to Excel.

  20. I have a lot of database connections that contain a lot of databases. This means my database drop down contains a lot of databases.

    It would be nice to be able to put the connection in a disconnected state and the databases in that connection would not show up in the database list.

    Then you would be able to "reconnect" or "enable" the connection and the database would be available again.

    This way I can leave all my connection configured and only "enable" or "connect" to the database that I need to work with.
