  1. TSQL Project, Editor, Code File Management, Compare Results, etc.

    I hope this is low hanging fruit that has a big impact on improving people's lives. SSDT is great. But I also need to be able to support Production. I need a VS Project that can hold TSQL queries that I'm using to research the issues and treat as a library of TSQL Code that helps me identify and resolve issues. The reason I want to use VS instead of SSMS is because of the extensive improvements with the editor that allow me to quickly go through a lot of SQL that I'm not familar with. The highlighting, find and…

              • TFS Feedback Client create off-line importable data

                TFS feed back clients must perform in TFS and test environment are connected in a network.

                We can't feed back data generated by using client feed back in the TFS and test environment is not connected in the network environment.

                • Make the default state for not completed test case as paused

                  When I run test case, I can understand that if I saved the run without completing all the steps it will be failed or passed as the following:

                  Test case has expected result-------------> Failed
                  Test case doesn't has expect result-----> Passed

                  But now with the existing paused state from TFS 2012 Update 1, I think it should be paused not failed or passed

                    • I am using Windows 8 and Visual Studio 2008.

                      x_boolean = Double.TryParse("$2", x_double) 'returns false and 0
                      but
                      x_double = CDbl("$2") 'returns 2.0

                      that seems inconsistent to me!

                        • Continue support for MBCS (Multi-Byte Character Sets) for MFC and C++

                          After VS2013 the MBCS variants of the standard library and MFC are declared deprecated. Conversion to Unicode will cost our company litteraly thousands of productive hours (over 3 million source code lines to convert). So this deprecation is a bad idea. Please continue the support of these variants of C++ projects, and continue the support of MBCS in MFC!

                          • Next era of drag and drop development for Visual Studio

                            Develop a declarative client side framework like AngularJS in pure TypeScript with tight integration with Visual Studio. Wait! Let me explain!

                            With the coming of age of HTML5 Shadow DOM and surging popularity of declarative client side frameworks like AngularJS/EmberJs, Visual Studio can usher in the next era of Drag and Drop web development...of single page applications.

                            Something analogous to a AngularJS "directive" could be dragged from the VS interface as a fully functional widget that, thanks to upcoming HTML5 Shadow DOM spec, would ALWAYS render the widget as intended.

                            This would allow Single Page Applications to be developed at…

                              • Add support for "Compare with unmodified..." to Git folders

                                With Git Tools for Visual Studio, in the "Team Explorer -> Changes -> Included Changes" section, the "Compare with unmodified..." option in the context menu is disabled for folders. Since the configured git difftool is already used, it should be a simple change to use "difftool -d" for folders.

                                  In C# we can divide code into areas using #region tags. It would be a nice feature if the currently selected region in the code-editor could stand out a little. I've created a screen-shot to explain what I mean.

                                  • Create a simple database project for those that only want to save files to source control

                                    I prefer to create my deployment scripts with a SQL Compare tool. For development, I just want to be able to check my code into some source control. I essentially want a project similar to SSMS projects. The current database projects in Visual Studio is way to complicated for my scenario. I currently use the blank C++ project for my database work. I would like to see multiple database project templates and one of them match a basic SSMS style project.

                                      • In-app & email notification like Asana

                                        Just like Asana, I want to follow any backlog item or feature I'm interest in. Or maybe If the team is still small, I want to be able to follow any changes.

                                        What I mean by follow is getting the pushed notifications, right in TFS also in my inbox email (if I want).
