[Tool] LINQPad - Query Analyzer for LINQ queries

Visual Studio does not contain any sort of query analyzer for LINQ at the moment. You have to manually write test code if you want to test your queries before implementing them in your projects. LINQPad fills this gap and adds several additional features that you soon don't want to miss anymore.

The download for this tool can be found here:

The homepage with further instructions for this tool can be found here:

  • The GUI has the look-and-feel of traditional query analyzers

  • You can write and test your queries in different proamming languages including C#, VB and SQL

  • You can display the LINQ processing instructions as well as the SQL queries that are executed in the background
