Unlock the Power of the Programmer’s Playground


LINQPad's autocompletion includes everything that you depend on:

  • Member lists & completion, with list filtering and "camel humps"
  • Parameter listing
  • Quick info
  • Smart tags for importing additional namespaces and references
  • Code outlining
  • Automatic code formatting

Autocompletion works not only with LINQ queries, but the entire C# and VB language specifications.

Power Tick

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

Smart Tags

When you enter an unresolved type, LINQPad instantly scans the .NET framework and offers a smart tag to add the namespace and assembly reference. And you don’t even have to get the casing correct! So, if you type protecteddata, LINQPad’s smart tag will import the System.Security.Crytopgraphy namespace, add a reference to System.Security.dll, and correct the case.

Code Snippets

The Developer and Premium editions also enable your favorite Visual Studio code snippets, plus a dozen unique high-productivity LINQ snippets - as well as any custom snippets that you define.

NuGet Integration

The Developer/Premium editions also unlock NuGet integration, so you can effortlessly reference anything in the entire NuGet library, and the ability to write cross-database queries - just control+drag additional databases from the Schema Explorer onto your query!

Edit SQL Data in Grids

And these editions also let you open SQL tables for editing, saving changes back to the database.


And with a premium license, unlock an integrated lightweight debugger. Single-step through your scripts, set breakpoints, and examine local variables!

Flexible Activation Policy

We know that you’ll want to use LINQPad on your work machine, home machine and laptop, so we’ve allowed a single-user license to activate up to three machines at once for your personal use. You also get an additional three activations for virtual machines running VMWare, MS Virtual PC, Hyper-V Azure Roles, or Azure VMs. And when they’re all used, you can transfer your activations - up to 6 times a year - through an automated web app.

No extra downloads are required: just click Upgrade to Paid Edition on LINQPad's help menu, and enter your activation code.
