  1. Dont Open and Show New Version Dialog - instead notify via menu bar

    Each time i run your tool it often shows a dialog over the top of my assemblies view while I am working - about a new version or something similar.

    Its like a child that wants my constant attention - and it is annoying. Please put the notifications either in my tray (windows 7 +) or implement a polite notifications popup in the app itself.

    Don't BEG.

    • Provide option to not include unneccesary parentheses from 'If' expressions when decompiling VB.NET code

      VB.NET (and BASIC-styled languages in general) have never required conditional expressions to be enclosed in parentheses, and it would be nice to have an option for making decompiled VB.NET code look a little more native by not putting 'if' expressions in parentheses.

      Maybe it's just me, but one of the reasons I have favored VB in over 20 years of professional programming is the English-styled keywords and relative lack of symbols in the syntax, which AFAIK are more for computers than humans.

      Without extraneous symbols, my brain often processes (well-written!) VB.NET code as fluently as pseudo-code, and I find that…

      • Mixed display: See C# (or VB) mixed with IL

        It would be nice to have a single display where you can see what IL code is generated from each C# (or VB) code line.

        • Format LINQ statements in extension method format

          Many IEnumerable<T> queries are too complicated and not even suported by the classic query style (from ... where ... select). I suggest making it optional to use only extension method formatting to make it easier to comprehend.

            • Remember settings like de4dot options

              It would be good for the program to remember the options selected for de4dot. Also there are more options in de4dot that could be added.

              • Provide options for VB.NET decompilation without ByVal keyword

                ByVal has been the default for the VB.NET compiler for many years (possibly since VS2008), and it would be nice to have the option of decompiling to VB.NET without having to globally remove all of the unnecessary ByVals.

                • AssemblyList should be managed separately from the currently loaded assemblies

                  It's annoying that adding/removing assemblies in a session automatically affects a saved assembly list. This is not convenient as the lists are continuously changed without prompting.

                  There should be a separate management UI for these Lists.

                      • need to be able to extract all source files into a folder without creating a project

                        Old project uses .net 1.0 or 1.1 but without that target platform it won't create a project, but I still need all the source files so I can create a new project.

                        • For missing references.

                          For missing references: point the root, 'References', at a folder and it picks up the properly named assemblies, then point at another folder to pick up any remaining assemblies, etc.

                            • Do not unload a DLL when the file on disk is deleted.

                              When I rebuild a DLL the original file gets deleted and JD shows me a dialog box alerting me to that fact.
                              Eventually the DLL is recreated, but by now I have to tell JD to load the DLL again from scratch.

                              I would rather have a model where the decompiled version of the DLL stays in JD (just like it happens in Reflector).
                              I would also accept a model where JD automatically reloads a DLL when the file changes on disk (perhaps with an option to do it automatically or on demand).

                              The only one I don't like is…

                                    • create new object syntax

                                      if the decompiled code is something like:
                                      Element elem = new Element();
                                      It's better to change the first 'Element' to var. .e.g var elem = new Element();

                                      But if the element is not created explicitly like the source code below:
                                      Element elem = ElementFactory.Create();
                                      Keep the begining 'Element' will help source code reader know the variable type ElementFactory returned.

                                      • Evaluate cross platform compatibility issues

                                        JustDecompile works a very low level, would it be possible for it to also understand cross platform compatibility errors - we can start by changing base framework and if any references are not available, can it highlight. With .NET becoming more cross platform, this is going to get critical to understand if the library will work across platforms/targets.

                                        • Provide an option to only use only one instance of JustDecompile.

                                          When opening an assembly from the shell, send to existing window when single-instance option is set.
