    I'd like to see a full read/eval/print loop for C# built into Visual Studio - much like F# Interactive, or Ruby's "irb".

    When debugging, this would let you interact with the current state of the debugged application - like the Immediate Window does now, but more powerful (e.g. with support for lambdas).

    When in design/editing mode, this would work a lot like LinqPad, but integrated into the IDE. It would let you evaluate expressions and execute multi-statement code blocks. This would let developers…

    Hey Niklas,

    Cool suggestion. We actually do have, or at least had, logos for the .NET languages and stickers bearing them. I have one for VB on one of my laptops and one of each for VB, C#, and F# on another. We used to give these out at conferences and events, I’m not sure if we ran out. At times we’ve also had T-shirts and mugs. Everyone’s always asking us where they can get them. We really should put up a storefront somewhere so that all our fans can show their love. I’ll get on that and let you know what we come up with.

    Regards,

    Anthony D. Green, Program Manager, Visual Basic, C#, and F# Languages Team
