      • 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.

                                • When duplicating a PBI or Bug why isnt everything duplicated (especially into tasks) - i.e. attachments and bug recording information etc

                                  When duplicating a PBI or Bug why isnt everything duplicated (especially into tasks) - i.e. attachments and bug recording information etc

                                  I create tasks from Bugs for multiple reasons
                                  1. I want to see the time i have allocated to the task rolled up into the overall workload
                                  2. One bug may have multiple tasks - SQL , CSS , Code etc

                                  I want to duplicate the initial PBI/BUG and pass all the attachments along with it so the developer can see them against their task - why does it not do this and also the steps to reproduce in…

Everything works well, The button is visible and it says "Choose File", however if you click the button nothing happens. can anyone with WindowsPhone knowledge help me? Its an XAML WebView app not silverlight app.

                                    • Add intellisense reset option

                                      Intellisense crashes frequently on certain pages, leading to the frustrating scenario of having to close and reopen a page just to get intellisense working again.

                                      While it seems that you can't fix it, a simple way of quickly resetting it without having to close the tab, like you can with SQL Server, would make this frequent bug less annoying.

                                      This seems to have started happening in VS2012 and has got worse in VS2013 and you can see the extent of the problem on this SO post, with over 31,000 views in 1 year.

                                      • Permissions on Work Item Type

                                        I alway need the posibility to set up permission for work items types. In projects, is natural for example that only a group of users can create Risks or another type of custum work item in my custom process template.

                                        • Make forward slashes the default for Includes

                                          Every time I install Visual Studio, the first thing I have to do is change the option "Use Forward Slash in #include Auto Complete" to True so that I can compile also in non-Windows environments.
