Question

Maybe I'm missing something obvious, but I how can I view the expression tree for this query:

from word in "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog".Split()
orderby word.Length
select word

using LINQPad?

Accepted Answer

You can view the objects that make up the expression tree as follows:

(from word in "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog".Split().AsQueryable()
orderby word.Length
select word).Expression

Popular Answer

from word in "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog".Split().AsQueryable()
orderby word.Length
select word

Then press the λ button next to Results.

EDIT: This will let you see the lambda expression, but I can't seem to find the expression tree in the sense of the Expression Tree Visualizer. Allegedly LINQPad has (had?) one, but I'm not finding it either.
