  1. Having a list of rows in the grid it would be convenient to be able to rapidly view a right clicked row as a single row. I.e. like when doing .First(t=> t.Id==9) in the query.

  2. Visual Studio does this with a little yellow vertical line beside the line number. It's very handy since one may wish to save changes if they are permanent; on other occasions the change is just temporary (eg the date in a SQL query) and can be discarded when closing.

    PS - it would be great to be able to search these Feature Suggestions to see if there's already a relevant topic that can be updated. I'm afraid I gave up looking after page 4.

  6. If you have them both running, its hard to tell which is which when looking at the task bar. Different Icons would make that distinction easier. I've seen that workout out well for VS Code or Visual Studio.

  7. If I recall, the results tab is just a WebBrowser from the System.Windows.Forms namespace, which is just IE. However, there's now WebView2, which is a browser that's chromium based: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/webview2/ . I have installed the Canary build of edge and would love to try out LINQPad with that as the results window instead of the IE-based version.

  9. It would be really awesome if we could set custom font size for the the result window.

    I know there is option to increase/decrease fonts, but it would be great if I could simply set the size/font that works for me and not have to change it manually for each Result window.

  10. When launching LINQPad, it opens to a new empty query. I'd like that query to be automatically closed/discarded when I open a pre-existing query instead (from the My Queries panel).

  11. In Connection properties -> Advanced, you can copy the full connection string to the clipboard. That is great, but from time to time I require to do the opposite: Copy a connection string from appsettings.json of my current .NET CORE EF project. It is kind of cumbersome having to copy the multiple parts into the dialog, and would be fantastic if the full connection string could be edited (e.g. in a text box).

  12. If I get an Error I have sometimes to count the position with the cursor. For other situations it would be helpful the get besides the cursor position the selected length of the text.
    I would like something like "Pos:( 1/ 12) Len: 13" or "Cursor: 1 / 12 / 13" in a statusbar etc.

  13. Please speed up the My Queries 'Go To' (search). I have about 0.5 GB of snippets and I need the search to be faster (maybe run it in parallel. The speed needs to be improved especially when searching content. LINQPad is amazing BTW!

  14. Dynamically skippable tests are nice, but their status isn't reflected in the results. To support XUnit.SkippableFact (NUGET-package):

    Make the following changes in xunit:

    1. function RunTests - add:
      runner.OnTestSkipped = info => AddTestResult(info);

    2. class TestResultSummary - add:
      public bool Skipped() => _testInfo is Xunit.Runners.TestSkippedInfo;

    3. TestResultSummary / public object Status - add:
      _testInfo is Xunit.Runners.TestSkippedInfo ? Util.WithStyle ("Skipped", "color:orange") :

    To test it:

    [SkippableFact]
    void Test_Xunit3()
    {
    Skip.If(true, "skipping");
    Assert.True(1 + 1 == 2);
    }

    [SkippableTheory]
    [InlineData(1)]
    [InlineData(2)]
    void Test_Xunit4(int x)
    {
    Skip.If(x==2, "skipping");
    Assert.True(1 + 1 == 2);
    }

    Note: Those changes will also work with the plain XUnit. So adding…

    1. Open the context menu when a tab is right clicked, even if it is not the current tab.

    2. Have a close tab button (visual studio style X) on each tab.

  16. While working on code I really missing the way to raise current row one position up and down by shortcut. The simplest and well known shortcut for that is alt-arrow-up and alt-arrow-down.

  18. Now you can only find and replace in the current document, but it would be useful to search in all opened scripts.

  19. I use LINQPad like any other code environment. As such I need to keep code repositories segregated. It would be helpful to be able to jump from one folder to the next without have to reconfigure LINQPad My Queries location. Am guessing there would be quite a challenge to the Search My Queries functionality... I would not expect the search to also search these "subfolders".
