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".

  1. Smart suggestions for F# code completion list

    Since F# has a strong type system it would be nice to suggest at the top of the code completion list in Visual Studio (or even better in FSI, à la bpython [http://bpython-interpreter.org/]) the values that are the most relevant for the context of the current code, like in Netbeans [https://netbeans.org/kb/73/java/editor-codereference.html#codecompletion].

    For example, given the following definitions:

    let a = 4
    let b = 5
    let c = a * b
    let d = 3.7
    let e = "a"

    let f (x: int) = // infer f :: int -> float
    float x / 2.0

    when…

    • SSL Option for IIS Express

      In ASP.NET Web projects - and especially ASP.NET 5 Web Project which can't run full IIS application in place - it would be really useful to specify that the IIS Express instance is accessible remotely.

      Currently there are options for Windows Auth and SSL, another checkbox for remote port access would be very useful.

      Since IIS is cannot be run in-place, IIS Express is how most of us will do debugging most of the time and remote access is a key component for many scenarios, chief among them mobile development. It should be easy as an option to enable remote…

      • Allow to connect multiple accounts for Azure in Server Explorer

        I have two separated accounts to manage Azure subscriptions and currently I need to sign out my first account and sign in my second account on the Azure node in Server Explorer.

        Why can I use multiple accounts without having to sign out and sign in everytime?

                  I can no longer import my menu customization from VS2010 (created in VS2008!) into the latest release, VS2015RC. Customization support has been terrible since 2010, please redesign and add back dragdrop support.

                  • Provide the ability to regenerate ASP.NET Designer Files

                    With Visual Studio 2013 and Visual Studio 2015, the ability to "Convert to Web Application" has been removed. This makes the process of importing or converting existing ASP.NET Web Site projects a manual process once again. Therefore, there should be a right-click menu option to regenerate ASP.NET Designer Files on an individual basis for development teams wishing to convert over their ASP.NET Web Site files and projects over to ASP.NET Web Applications.

                    • Please implement C# compiler and WPF for WebAssembly

                      WebAssembly or wasm is an experimental efficient low-level programming language for in-browser client-side scripting, which is currently in development. WebAssembly is portable bytecode which is designed to be faster to parse than JavaScript, as well as to execute faster. The team working on WebAssembly include people from Mozilla, Google, Microsoft, and Apple (who respectively control the four major browsers, Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Safari).

                          • Improve the download format/style for VS2013

                            How about:
                            - Clearly showing the size of the download before it starts(if I'd known the download to try VS2013 was over 8 gigs I'd have taken the express version).
                            - Allowing users to choose which modules they want to download (Windows phone? maybe i'll get that later, or never).
                            - Allowing the download to be paused (the only option is cancel)
                            - Showing a percentage completed, or a list of what has to be downloaded, or anything informative rather than that blue bar and the silly dots.
                            -
                            -

                              My cloudapp Performance metrics include a huge number of GET/_browserLink/requestData/... entries when all I'm really interested in is my page load times. If only I could sort performance data based on the pages that are most frequently visited (e.g. count) that might make it easier to use.

                                Application Insights "collection buckets" cannot currently be renamed. When we created our original bucket, we were only intending to store a certain type of data, but now we are collecting a lot more. We would like the ability to modify the names of our resource to reflect the current data.

It would be great if a user had the option to choose what amount of real estate the Rich Text fields get, and consequently the ability to scroll the custom fields at the top of the window,

                                    • Document $ variables

                                      Creating a new "C# project template", inside ProjectTemplate.csproj there are condition statements used that are not documented.

                                      $if$ and $endif$..

                                      Its not here

                                      Not sure where else to look. Stackoverflow doesn't have anything...

                                      • Add BUG from PBI (User Story). Same as "Add Task"

                                        Right now from PBI "Add Task" option is available using +. Similarly "Add BUG" needs to be available as well. So that QA person can create BUG from the Story itself.

                                        • #Cortana VS2015 Code Writing

                                          #Cortana VS2015 Code Writing
                                          Would be great if #Cortana can help us in writing code in the IDE,plus it will make VS2015 more powerful.
