    • Web Based Code Review

      We are a mixed development environment, using both TFVC and TF-GIT for code control. Many of our developers are linux based and do not use visual studio. We can do everything we want through the web interface, with the one major exception of code reviews. These only function fully through visual studio. I would like to see full code review functionality via the online portal.

      • autosave

        Haven't you ever had when you had just made a long text. And you accidentally press 'don't save'? I came up with this idea.
        The autosave function.
        What is does is actually the same like in the videogame
        Grand Theft Auto 5.
        When playing the game, it will ask you to autosave.
        Say 'yes' and is automatically saves your progress now and then.
        Say 'no' and saving is your own problem.
        My idea is to let MIcrosoft Word autosave every 10 minutes or so and will be saved under the files names with '(autosave)' behind it.
        In this way you…

          • Enable BrowserLink for Static Files with no web.config

            When working with open source front end frameworks like AngularJS, it would be great if we can use the BrowserLink feature. However, the feature requires the debug settings to be in the web.config file. Not all site require a web.config file - especially static sites that are not going to be hosted in IIS.

            This could be possible if the debug settings are stored somewhere else relative to the local project files.

                  • Add build status to pull requests

                    I would like to see the status of builds related to commits in a pull requests.

                    On the main page of a pull request we have Discussion, Files, Commits. I would like a Build page as well that lists any build runs on the source branch of the pull request.

                    This will allow the reviewers to quickly see that all tests have passed and that the current build is green.

                    • Support custom elements in .aspx files

                      Update 4 RC just recently included support for custom elements in the HTML editor (the default editor for .html files) however this feature did not make it into the HTML (Web Forms) editor (the default editor for .aspx files).

                      • Support Tag Specific Options for .html files

                        The HTML editor (which is the default for .html files) does not support Tag Specific Options like the HTML (Web Forms) editor does (which is the default editor for .aspx files).

                        When editing a .html file, you have no control over the formatting of specific elements in your document.

                        As a workaround, you can open .html files with the HTML (Web Forms) editor, and you can even set it as default. But this functionality should really be there by default.

                          • ASP.NET MVC HTML5 HTML Helpers

                            It would be great if you had the ability to use HTML5 together with the built in HTML Helpers in ASP.NET MVC. Being able to use code such as:

                            @Html.TextBoxFor(model => model.EmailAddress, InputType.Email, "Placeholder goes here")

                            There is currently an external open source project maintained on Codeplex (http://mvchtml5.codeplex.com/) that does this, however it would be great to have this functionality available in Visual Studio by default.

                            • Inline search in query column headers

                              Hi,

                              Can you please add Inline search in query column headers to filter results of query while keeping the original query intact
                              It's should look like a dropdown with auto complete where the dropdown items should be filled from the results of the query.

                              Thanks

                              • Release Visual Studio Professional for Free to Replace Express Editions

                                For MIcrosoft moving forward, and to compete against Apple and Google, etc. I believe replacing the feature limited and cut-down express editions of Visual studio and release the Professional version of Visual Studio for free. Microsoft should implement a marketplace in Visual Studio where developers can sell their add-ons and Microsoft can take a small cut from the sales.

                                It gets frustrating as a indie to have such a huge upfront costs for developing for Windows/Windows Phone when Apple (for instance) offer it's development tools for free and without limitations. I can develop for both desktop and and mobile apps…

                                • Allow Edit & Continue in Async method

                                  Edit & Continue is one of the best feature of vs bringing huge productivity gain, unfortunatly Edit & Continue does not work in Async methods.

                                  In ASP.NET MVC App almost everything is async so Edit & Continue is usesless.

                                  Please let us edit a continue in async method.

                                  Thx

                                  • Subscription Visual Studio Proffessional

                                    The payment of £1000+ is unfortuantely too much for newbies and the express doesn't allow you to use the huge variety of plugins available.

                                    I could imagine a subscription service like the Office subscription.. allowing you to use the full set of Visual Studio features and updates for "free" for a monthly subscription of something like 8.99 per month.

                                    This will open your product up to people like me who need the extra tools and reliability of the professional or ultimate product... and the toolsets... but who have not got that kind of money in one big hit.

                                    • Revive the 2008/2010 interface for Visual Studios

                                      Visual Studio used to look great. Everything about the 2012/13/14 interface looks amateurish and is a giant step backwards.
                                      -The monotone color is awful (the alternative color schemes are beyond ridiculous)
                                      -The difference between enabled and disabled tasks is barely discernible (we have tested on various monitors)
                                      -Moving tasks to reorganize the flow has become very tedious and difficult as the display will suddenly "jump" to a different location on within the package
                                      -Connection Managers were listed in very easy to read/adjusting columns and are now just one long loop making it difficult to locate (forget quickly) a specific manager

                                        • BLEND and Animations available to Visual Studio 2013 Express for Silverlight 5 Web app

                                          I develop a Silverlight Web application using Visual Studio 2013 Express however there's no way I can do animations with Blend as it is not supported. We would like Visual Studio 2013 Express with Blend support for a dying technology it would be good to give us that chance.
