When typing the following code i am not getting any prompt results. Are lambda expressions supported by intellisense, if so is there anything special that has to be done for them to work?

int[] ints = new int[]{1,2,3};

ints.Where(i => i.

Hi Conor,

Thanks, this is something we know we still have to work on for future releases.

Ok, thanks for the info.

Is it the same deal for the SQL syntax? e.g below


int[] ints = new[] {1,2,3};
from x in ints
where x > 1
select x.

Correct, both LINQ and lambda IntelliPrompt improvements are listed in our TODO item for this.

Hi Christopher,

Our WPF version of the add-on has had lambda IntelliPrompt for a number of years.  However that feature relies on the much better add-on design we have in the WPF version, along with all the core document and syntax language improvements we made when building the WPF SyntaxEditor.  We are hoping to take another look at trying to backport all of that to WinForms, which will be quite an undertaking.  But it would be nice to finally get the WinForms SyntaxEditor in sync with all the APIs of the other platforms.

Where does this sit in your development raodmap, if at all?

Also, please provide a description of any additional deficiencies in the Winforms version versus the WPF...this would be useful pre-purchase...

 

If it is on your site, I missed it...

 

Thanks

We are hoping to look into it sometime this year and see how feasible it would be.  I'm sorry but we don't have any comparisons of the two platforms at this time.  The .NET Languages Add-on in WPF though has a much better design (allowing us to handle more advanced features like lambdas) and resolves everything with much more accuracy in general.

Hello, we have just updated to latest WinForms version, is there a way to make intellisense in lambdas work today?

As an additional question, is it possible to see change log for different releases?

I can see that you have been posting release notes in Announcements, I will be going through that, thanks.

Is my understanding correct that lambda intellisense is still not part of WinForms? Thanks.

Hello,

The WPF version's add-on has much better IntelliPrompt in general than the older WinForms version.  The WinForms version doesn't have lambda IntelliPrompt.  That being said, per our blog, we are currently working on a newer codebase that will unify the WPF, UWP, and WinForms versions under the same API and feature set.  It's effectively bringing a lot of new features to the WinForms version.  That will allow the WinForms version to have the same add-on features as in the other platforms.  We still have a few months of work left on this effort though but watch our blog for updates.

And yes, you can look at our Announcements forum for change logs of releases.

Thank you. I hope your effort succeeds and brings the much needed lambda to WinForms add-on.

The latest build of this product (v2018.1 build 0341) was released 3 months ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
