When i'm working in visual studio and need to check something stupidly simple, like testing a string format, I think twice before opening linqpad just because it somehow seems like a cop-out, i.e. seems like I'm being unproductive so has a bad "feel" to it. If however Linqpad was always running when I open visual studio then there would not be any "stigma" attached to quickly checking something in linqpad, because it would be right there.
Ideallly linqpad should replace the immediate window... THAT would be justice! he he...Alan Hemmings supported this idea ·
Sweet! That'll work well for what I need, cheers, Alan
the alternative is to do this from inside Linqpad, which will simply pick up any running visual Studio instances and projects and do the same thing, but launched from within Linqpad. same result.
What about entering SQL and seeing the LINQ?
