LINQPad Pro and Premium Editions

Purchase an activation code and unlock a wealth of extra features, including autocompletion, code snippets, code outlining, cross-database querying, NuGet integration, the ability to directly edit SQL data, and even an integrated debugger!

LINQPad's autocompletion includes everything that you depend on:

Autocompletion works not only with LINQ queries, but (almost) the entire C# 5.0 language specification:


LINQPad's unique Power-Tick lets you select multiple properties without closing the popup. This is a massive time-saver:

Power Tick

When you enter an unresolved type name, LINQPad will instantly scan the entire .NET framework and offer a smart tag to add both the namespace and assembly reference for that type. And you don't even have to get the casing correct! For example, if you type protecteddata, LINQPad will offer a smart tag that imports the System.Security.Crytopgraphy namespace and adds a reference to System.Security.dll, and corrects the case to ProtectedData:

Smart Tags

The Premium edition also enables your favorite Visual Studio code snippets, plus a dozen unique high-productivity LINQ snippets - as well as any custom snippets that you define:

Code Snippets

And with the Premium Edition, you can write cross-database queries - just control+drag additional databases from the Schema Explorer onto your query! The Premium edition also unlocks NuGet integration, so you can effortlessly reference anything in the entire NuGet library:

NuGet Integration

And you can open SQL tables for editing, saving changes back to the database:

Edit SQL Data in Grids

***NEW*** A premium license now unlocks an integrated lightweight debugger in the latest LINQPad beta. Single-step through your scripts, set breakpoints, and examine local variables!
