      it sounds like you're after a macros feature in LINQPad. A hotkey maps to a user-definable action, where one of the action types is to open and run a query, with the query editor optionally hidden. I'll look into how easy this is to implement.

        Have you thought about using LINQPad's HTML controls?

        Something like this: http://share.linqpad.net/d8o2g3.linq

          Work on a .NET Core version is underway, but to begin with it will target only Windows (.NET Core 3 Desktop). Cross-platform support may follow, but this will be a separate project and will require a review of the available cross-platform GUI libraries.

            You can do this by clicking Advanced and under 'Extra connection string parameters', type 'password=...'

              This would be hard to enforce - even if it's disabled through L2S, you could still make updates via SQL. Have you considered using different login credentials - with only db_datareader role enabled?

                There's a keyboard shortcut for my extensions (Ctrl+Shift+Y)

                  This is how LINQPad currently works, with the exception of not having an option for Windows credentials. Try the latest beta - it now has a Windows credentials option. Bear in mind that NuGet will ignore this setting.

                      Use Ctrl+PageUp and Ctrl+PageDown for the alternative switching behavior.

                        Isn't this how it already works? For example, run this:

                        new { X=1, Y=2 }.Dump (exclude:"X");
                        new[] { new { X=1, Y=2 } }.Dump (exclude:"X");

                        In both cases, only Y is dumped.

                          Do you have a repro? The following works correctly:

                          "foo".ToCharArray().Where(x => x

                            You can work around this by putting the snippets in the parent folder. (They'll then to VB too, but this is rarely a problem.)

                              Have you tried Environment.SetEnvironmentVariable? You can also write a method in My Extensions to set variables, and then call it in any query. For instance:

                              public static class MyVar
                              {
                              public static void Test()
                              {
                              Environment.SetEnvironmentVariable ("foo", "value");
                              Environment.SetEnvironmentVariable ("bar", "value");
                              }
                              }

                              Then just call MyVar.Test();

                                The 5.07.06 beta fixes this problem (at least to the point where LINQPad will no longer hang). Autocompletion is likely to lag, though, with queries of this size.

                                  The situation with regard portable deplpoyments has improved in recent betas:
                                  http://www.linqpad.net/PortableDeployment.aspx

                                  You can now portablize connections, drivers, default namespaces & references and user preferences, as well as queries, plug-ins and snippets.

                                    LINQPad styles the <pre> tag to use a proportional font. A workaround is to add the <code> tag as well.

                                        If you add the following namespace:

                                        TIL = System.Transactions.IsolationLevel

                                        and hit "Set as default for new queries"

                                        ...would that help?

                                          LINQPad honors the global Windows DPI setting. If general readability is an issue, go to the display properties, and choose display scaling > 100%.

                                          If this does not meet requirements, what is the rationale for wanting LINQPad to use a font for its dialogs, menus, etc., that is larger the font used by all other Windows applications?

                                            Also note that any DLL that you put into LINQPad's "plugins folder" (Edit | Preferences | Folders) will be automatically referenced by all queries.

                                            So if you want every query to automatically reference multiple extension assemblies, you can completely do so if you build those extensions in VS.
