  1. If a special file in the same folder as the opened .linq-file exists (for example "_Extensions.linq"), it should be loaded and executed before the query executes. Extension: Search the parent directories too for this file.

  2. I'd like to see the dump for a DateTime be more like a normal object rather than a string format. It's easy enough to to .ToString(format) if I want to see the format, but right now there's not a nice way to see the object properties.

  3. The time tracking software I use, TimeSprite, uses the window title to track time and assign to tasks. LINQPad always just shows as "LINQPAD" - but when a query is saved, including the file name in the title bar (like Word, Excel, etc. does) will let users identify the current query, and will facilitate time-tracking apps such as TimeSprite to assign queries to projects.

  4. PLEASE stop the app from taking focus, when a query completes. I often launch a query and move onto other tasks. However, when LINQPad completes a query execution, the app automatically resumes focus .. including the cursor / keyboard where I might have been (for example) authoring an email. MOST FRUSTRATING!

  5. I would like the to be able to see triggers that are on tables. In the same way that I can look at the definitions of SPs and functions.

  8. This great product offers support for so many database types, but the major one lacking is IBM DB2. You can do this through EF, but you will not be able to see the SQL that your linq queries generate.

  10. Support authentication using Azure Active Directory. This is necessary for OData endpoints in services tied to Office 365 such as CRM Online and Microsoft Dynamics Marketing. Please see http://community.adxstudio.com/blogs/shan/2014-12-10-using-odata-feeds-with-mdm/ and how Power Query authenticates against OData using Microsoft Organization Account for authentication.

  12. 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. Basically I want to reverse the current built in process, where you can enter a LINQ statement and down in the results window click the lambda tab to see it converted over. I would like to be able to enter a Lambda expression and in the results window see the LINQ version of it.

  15. 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

  17. Currently when you have a dataset and you export it to excel, it works great except for field types. Excel likes to assume what data type is in each cell, and in cases where there are string values with padded zeros (e.g. 0012345) excel thinks it's a number and drops the padding.

    Is there any way you can apply column formatting (even the most primitive like Double=>Number, String=>Text, Decimal=>Money, etc.)? This would preserve data during the transition to excel making the export a true 1:1.

  18. The LINQPad code editor currently supports column mode selections (shift+alt+cursor) which is cool. But I really miss the column mode editing support known from VS or Notepad++ (http://notepad-plus-plus.org/features/column-mode-editing.html)

  19. Now, we can dump GUI controls, XMLs, and other custom outputs, as a new output (tabbed) panel.
    However, LINQPad can show just only one panel currently. I think it's inconvenient.
    If there are support to split tabs vertically or horizontally, it should be very useful when using multiple visualizations or interacting with custom GUIs.

  20. I would like to be able to dump arbitrary objects to a new or secondary panel, the same way we can call DumpFormatted on XDocuments.
    Ex: new[] { 1, 2, 3 }.DumpToPanel("PanelName", <other dump options>);
