HTML Limit

I would like to alter the html limits so that linqpad optionally uses a filestream and allows unlimited results on dump. I think using http://cefsharp.github.io/ to display the results would help. Even if I reference Linqpad in a custom program, there isn't a way I can see to make it dump to html with unlimited results.


  • Simple sample to prove my point.

    Sub Dump(Of T)(objects As IEnumerable(Of T)) Dim pth As String = IO.Path.GetTempFileName & ".html" Using writer = LINQPad.Util.CreateXhtmlWriter(True) writer.Write(objects) My.Computer.FileSystem.WriteAllText(pth, writer.ToString, False) End Using Process.Start(pth) End Sub

    Sample use:

    Private Sub Button1_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click Dim x = Enumerable.Range(0, Integer.MaxValue) x.Dump End Sub

  • Elias has provided the code to dump to file. To solve the limited number of lines due to limitation in Linqpad Dump, I commented out File.WriteAllText and replace by File.AppendAllText. Please look at the url link contributed by Elias below. Here is the sample code in C#

    //Since the file written to will be in the appending mode. Start from scratch

    foreach (var item in millionsItems)
    var writer = new DumpToFileExtensions.WriterWithdestination(path);

    public static class DumpToFileExtensions
    public class WriterWithdestination
    public TextWriter Writer { get; }
    public string FilePath { get; }
    private DumpContainer dc { get; }
    public DumpContainer LastDump { get; }
    public WriterWithdestination(string filePath)
    FilePath = filePath;
    Writer = Util.CreateXhtmlWriter(true);
    dc = new DumpContainer(Util.HorizontalRun(false, "output writing to ", new Hyperlinq(filePath, filePath))).Dump();
    LastDump = new DumpContainer().Dump();

    public static T DumpToFile(this T obj, WriterWithdestination writer)
    return obj.DumpToFile(writer, null);
    public static T DumpToFile(this T obj, WriterWithdestination writer, string title)
    writer.LastDump.Content = "";
    if (!string.IsNullOrWhiteSpace(title))
    writer.LastDump.Content = Util.RawHtml(string.Format("
    {0}", title)).DumpToFile(writer);
    File.AppendAllText(writer.FilePath, writer.Writer.ToString());
    // File.WriteAllText(writer.FilePath, writer.Writer.ToString());
    writer.LastDump.Content = Util.VerticalRun(writer.LastDump.Content, obj);
    return obj;
