Description hiangel999 2015-08-05 04:26:31 UTC
Unless there's a project being debugged — the widget doesn't allow to enter any text. It is pretty annoying — there're situations when one wants to execute a chain of vanilla functions to be sure they understand the documentation right.

For comparison — in VisualStudio that works at least since 2010 version.

The immediate window requires the app to be running because it executes the statements that you type on the debugee.

It sounds like what you want is a REPL.

You can run the REPL by running the `csharp` command in a terminal. I think there's a GUI version as well, but it's not built into MonoDevelop.

Hm… Thank you very much, I missed that answer; perhaps I need to changed a subscription to another mail. Yeah, «csharp» application is exactly what I wanted, with its presence there's no need additionally in immediate window, I think. Closing.
