LINQPad Feature Suggestions

More than 100 LINQPad features are a direct result of customer feedback! This is the official forum for posting and voting on ideas – we want to hear from you!

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Allow per-folder "linqpad.extensions" file

    I would like to be able to create a "My Extensions"-like file per folder so that I can create contexts or extension code that are shared by all of the queries in that folder.

    • Support TIMESTAMP WITH TIME ZONE columns in Oracle

      Linqpad doesn't work very well if the underlying columns in an Oracle database contain TIMESTAMP WITH TIME ZONE columns.

      These appear in the datacontext as DateTime (losing the offset information), however queries using equality checks against them can fail due to the way the underlying IQDriver handles (or otherwise) the conversion back to datetime offset within Oracle.

      It's a bit of a pain, but one of the simple approaches is to ensure the generated SQL wraps those columns in either sys_extract_utc(theColumn) or 'theColumn AT TIME ZONE xxxx' to ensure they are compared with the DateTime parameter that is bound to…

      • Ctrl + E as alternative execute query shortcut

        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).

          • Re-enable VS debugging for the beta

            The debugger in LINQPad 4.5 is awesome, but not as good as Visual Studio's. Before the beta, I was using Debugger.Launch/Break to debug in VS. Now, those launch LINQPad's debugger. Unless and until the debugger is as good as VS's, I would like some kind of button or something (as long as it's faster than using the preferences) to use an external debugger.

            • Update Microsoft.WindowsAzure.* assembly references to latest versions

              Obviously, features new to 1.7 (and later) will not be available as LinqPad seems to reference the 1.1 version. Also, I've been having this issue:

              Assembly 'MyAssembly, Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null' uses 'Microsoft.WindowsAzure.StorageClient, Version=1.7.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35' which has a higher version than referenced assembly 'Microsoft.WindowsAzure.StorageClient, Version=1.1.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35'
