I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Export to project doesn't select the right target framework for Xamarin .dll

    Exporting to project doesn't work correctly for assemblies with target framework Xamarin, for example: [assembly: TargetFramework("Xamarin.Mac,Version=v2.0", FrameworkDisplayName="")]
    Instead .NET Framework 4.0 is selected.

    • Instant source code panel that shows resulting IL code

      Just like LinqPad, a way to enter some c# code or fragment, then have a button that after compiling that code shows the IL code for what I have entered. If possible in realtime.

      Very useful for us that want to understand IL code or need a quick snippet of it for patching games.

      • Search improvement

        Although it does work somewhat, it doesn't work entirely properly. I did a search for a property name. it does find it as a property definition and as a string, but it doesn't find uses of it in the code blocks (i.e. a user property named Email doesn't find user.email well)

        • enhance search filtration

          The combined Search interface is good, but the search filtration system is a bit cumbersome. In general I think one knows whether one is searching for a type/member/property/namespace/method/string etc, and the super-advanced combination filtration system is probably overkill.

          I suggest adding a system to allow one to quickly identify the scope of the search within the search box, when the advanced filtration system is more than is needed. Some examples:

          type:guid
          method:execute
          property:isempty
          namespace:search.dictionary
          member:potato <- searches properties, fields and methods
          class:monkey <- only types that are classes
          struct:flapjack <- only types that are structs
          enum:pancake <- I think you…

          • Provide Ability to View IL of Compiler Generated State Machine

            Currently, when viewing a vb.net based executable or DLL that contains Async Based Code, I am unable to view the Compiler Generated State Machine as I believe they are hidden from view within the product. I get the option when hovering over references to it, to navigate to, but the product just sits there and does nothing.

              • Format if statement in a less clumsy way

                Original code:
                public Method(int readChunkSize, int writeChunkSize)
                {
                if ((readChunkSize < 1 && _readChunkSize != -1)) throw new ArgumentOutOfRangeException("readChunkSize");
                }

                Decompiled code:
                if ((readChunkSize >= 1 ? false : this._readChunkSize != -1)) throw new ArgumentOutOfRangeException("readChunkSize");

                ...

                        • Add a Stored Resource file location set

                          When a new decompile request is opened and the resource files are being located and a location is selected should this prompt me to save this as a valid location to look in again?

                          Perhaps a simple xml list class that loads a set of resource locations.

                          This new feature would allow us to store a set of common resource file locations that the decompile will look in before stopping to prompt for a resource location.

                          Would this require a new prompt for DLL hell as in same resource in multipule locations....

                            • Decompile to Oxygene language of RemObjects

                              Other decompilers support Oxygene by RemObjects. I use Oxygene so it would be valuable to see the assembly decoded as Oxygene.

                                I hope that we can add this feature:

                                System.Windows.Forms.%.bmp

                                This will search for one character token by "%".

                                And you can also use "*" for any longer characters by searching.

                                • provide some help on how to use JustDecompile

                                  The docs on docs.telerik.com only talk about making plugins, nothing about how to actually 'use' JD. I mean, theoretically it should be easy enough, drag an assembly over to the left pane and it should almost look after itself, a great piece of software, but the fact remains that it would be cool to have at least some sort of help to get going.... maybe a menu item that says 'help' ?

                                  • If the project is open sourced, the decompiler lets you know, and will load the public source.

                                    You ever decompile something, just to learn that the project is open source and you can download the project. Or have you ever been curious if the project you are decompiling is open sourced? Let JestDecompile let you know and choose what you'd like to do.

                                    • Consider ILONLY flag when determining whether to show assembly as "Any CPU"

                                      I have an assembly for which which CorFlags.exe shows that ILONLY is false. I am not 100% sure about this but it is my understanding that mixed (managed and native code) assemblies cannot be "Any CPU", but JustDecompile is showing "Any CPU" next to the assembly name.

                                      • Allow creating project through IL type as well

                                        Allowing project creation through IL will help to mitigate language platfor mdependencies (e.g., when code is built in C++ and when we extract the code in C# it will create a problem as the parsers for both languages are different)

                                        • Copy list of API's or class names

                                          It would be great if you can provide a short-cut to copy list of Classes within a binary (I mean name of all classes) as well as list of all API's within a class.
