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. 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…

                  • Unicode text support inside source files

                    when source file (aka .cs file) contains Unicode text, JustDecompile could not show texts in Unicode format and after decompiling the assembly these texts are unreadable.

                      that would be great if there is a button in toolbar to display/hide the Assembly List at the left side.

                      • 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.

                                • Display correct C# code for 'fault' blocks

                                  The 'fault' block is defined as part of the CIL spec, but it isn't currently available as a distinct feature within C#. The 'fault' feature essentially acts as a finally which is only called if an exception was thrown. This was decided not to be an essential C# language feature, as its functionality can be implemented as part of multiple discrete catch blocks, but the CLR still supports the construct.

                                  Despite it not being commonplace in normal code, the fault construct does sometimes appear in compiled binaries, such as those processed by a post-build tool (e.g. PostSharp). It is sometimes…

                                  • Font settings don't save unless application is run as administrator

                                    When I run the application normally and change the font, it doesn't save for the next session. I have to run the application as an administrator, change the font, and then run it normally. Make the settings not dependent on running the application as an administrator.

                                    • have the back button return to the expanded view of the decompiled code

                                      Currently, when you click on a method to view it, and then click back, it returns with the method you were in collapsed.. very frustrating!

                                          Thank you for the suggestion, Jason. We have an option to change the text colors which is located in the Tools→Settings menu. The dialog window with the settings looks like that: http://screencast.com/t/PwtudiV9. Please give it a try and let us know whether it works for you as expected.

                                          You’re right about the rest of the settings, though, so I’ll reopen the feature request.

                                          Best regards,
                                          Vladi

                                          Similar to this request:

                                          http://justdecompile.uservoice.com/forums/113277-justdecompile-feature-suggestions/suggestions/1781095-add-command-line-support

                                          What I propose is a feature in which a particular namespace, type, or member can be jumped to from the command line after loading an assembly.

                                          For example:

                                          justdecompile.exe mscorlib.dll System.Text.Encoding

                                          I would also like to see something like a --newtab option, which would first look for an existing instance of JD and, if one exists, open a new tab to that particular type.

                                          My primary use-case for this feature is for integrating JD into the workflow of other tools. I would like to be able to jump from an issue in a static analysis…
