Execute LINQ Queries at Design-time with LINQ Insight!
November 15, 2012
Today, Devart is pleased to announce the release of LINQ Insight - a powerful Visual Studio add-in that allows you to execute LINQ queries right from your code at design-time. With it you can run LINQ queries just as you write them and preview the generated SQL and returned data, this greatly simplifies development and debugging of LINQ queries.
LINQ Insight supports LINQ to Entities (Entity Framework), LINQ to NHibernate, LINQ to SQL, LinqConnect, LINQ to XML, and LINQ to Objects - both usual LINQ queries and queries via extension methods. It integrates into Visual Studio 2010 and Visual Studio 2012.
LINQ Insight comes in two editions - free Express edition and Standard edition. Express edition is a freeware alternative to the different LINQ debug visualizers - it displays SQL and parameters for LINQ to Entities, LINQ to NHibernate, LINQ to SQL, and LinqConnect. LINQ Insight Standard also displays the data returned by queries. Data is displayed in a grid with grouping, sorting, and filtering. You can even edit this data. With LINQ Insight you can also browse the related objects and view their data.
