          • Show the Values of SQL Parameters in Intellitrace

            It's nice that Intellitrace shows the parameters (@1,@2) of SQL calls, but I really need to know the values of those parameters for debugging.

                TFVC-based team projects have support for check-in policies that require associated work items for changesets. We need similar functionality for Git-based team projects.

                • On-premise availability / performance

                  For mid - large companies it is hard to monitor availability and performance of the applications, especially behind a firewall. Opening the applications to the outside world is restricted, which in the end leaves a gap or gap in the wallet. (there are solutions but not with the traceability and integration as AI)

                  So is it possible to add on-premise support for the current webtests. They are really useful, but they only miss that one twist which makes them unmissable for every customer.

                  • Enable TFS action for "Linked ressources" in TFS Eclipse-Plugin

                    The TFS Eclipse-Plugin doesn't recognize "Linked resources" as TFS controlled source files or folders. Therefore the plugin doesn't enabled TFS actions for these files or folders.

                    • Add "backreference" in nested With blocks

                      In such a Code :
                      With FrmTest
                      With .TextBox1
                      .Text = "abc"
                      ..TextBox2.Text = "abc"
                      End With
                      End With

                      The double-dots ".." would refer to the first With block

                      • Store Solution Explorer State

                        Currently, the state of the Solution Explorer gets lost when Visual Studio is restarted. The arrangement of Solution Explorer(s) should be stored to the solution.
                        There already an Issue on Connect but nothing happened on that: https://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/feedback/details/767415/solution-explorer-state-is-not-saved-for-a-solution

                        • Jump to the next light bulb

                          Code Fixes with Light Bulb is really nice.
                          But it would be more usefull if we could navigate to the next bulb and the all light bulbs as a indicator on the scoll margin with a shorcut. Like in Respah

                          • Make "Absolute Clean Solution" option

                            It would be nice to have another, let's say Absoulte Clean Solution option, that would have cleaned the solution from all and absolutely all unneccessary or generated files. Although current Clean Solution is nice, it still leaves a tons of litter in the solution folder(s), like obj and bin directory, sou you have to navigate yourself to this directory and manually check for these files/folders and delete them. It would be nice to have a command for this absolute cleanup.

                              • Add the ability to create portable libraries in ALL Visual Studio Express editions

                                While this was clamed to be comlete here (http://visualstudio.uservoice.com/forums/121579-visual-studio/suggestions/3230383-add-the-ability-to-create-portable-libraries-in-vi) it is really only enabled for the Windows 8 Store version, which does not work on Windows 7. I would like my co-workers to be able to open solutions where I use portable class libraries.

                                • It would be great if a "footer" or fixed final row feature could be added to DataGridView.

                                  Currently the ways to manually add such a feature appear to be complicated. It would be great to be able to scroll up and down a datagridview with many rows, but have the final row remain fixed. In this row the coder would be permitted to populate it with calc results as he needed, sums or averages or similar. But permit coder to create calcs of his own devising.

                                  • provide layer diagrams (and associated architecture validation) for native code (plain old C as well as [unmanaged] C++).

                                    Creating layer-diagrams is rather simple when dealing with C#. However, it is currently impossible to use them with native C/C++. Although VS 2015 accepts native projects being associated with modeling-projects one constantly ran into "AV3001 : Missing Link"-warnings - and not a single generated dependency - while the (semantically) identical C#-Project works like charm when it comes to 'Generate Dependencies' or 'Validate Architecture'.

                                    Since C is still a valid and widely spread programming language I suggest you provide layer diagrams (and associated architecture validation) for native code (plain old C as well as [unmanaged] C++).

                                      Add ReactJS support to Visual Studio. This is quite similar to JavaScript in many ways, but would also require Ecmascript 6 support.

                                      • See what rule triggered an alert

                                        The current email alert supplies a short note a the end describing that the notification was sent due to a subscription created by "Person X" which is not always true if it was a team alert that triggered the notificean.

                                        It would be very beneficial if the note included a URI type information.

                                        this could be in the form of [Server]\[TeamProject]\[user or shered]\[name of rule]

                                        That way it would be possible to identify what rule triggered the email and if multiple notification was received where only one expected it would be possible to find the source of the unexpected notifications.

                                        • Integrate WebMatrix with Visual Studio

                                          It would be great to integrate WebMatrix with Visual Studio in order to offer php and other frameworks support.
