It is good to add a C++(and other languages') interpreter for rapid development. An interpreter is very convenient and saves quite some time. The most important use of the interpreter is conceptual scripting. Users may transform basic concepts into scripts through line-editing, using an interactive command-line interpreter, before improving their idea into real and complete programs. It is also useful for new learners to use interactive interpreters for learning languages, in this way they can test and figure out if something works correctly, because interpreters can produce immediate results in an interactive session. Moreover, it helps programmers who uses interpreted languages(Python, Ruby, Perl., ect) to more quickly get used to .NET compiled languages. Finally, some C++ programmers rather chose other IDEs (like Ch) but not Visual Studio for programming in C++ solely because Ch has an interpreter.

When using the cube, you cannot filter by the Feature Hierarchy because it is not linked to the work item facts. I want to use the cube in such a way that I can see all history at the work item level for all the product backlog items I have associated with a feature or higher level I have created.3 votes
We are accessing VSO from New Zealand but the server is in South Central America which results in very slow response times while loading backlog items/test cases etc. Like HP have done for cloud version of Quality Center/ALM, is Microsoft considering the hosting from Australia east coast which would make VSO more responsive for users in this region?1 vote
Change the sequence of workflow labels under project to a more logical "Home Work Code Build Test" instead of "Home Code Work Build Test"
Logical workflow in any project life cycle is
1. Work (Product backlog item or bug) - you get a requirement/bug
2. Code - you code it/configure it
3. Build - you package it
So the 2nd row heading would look more logical as follows
Home > Work > Code > Build > Test1 vote
We are trying to use the naming rule checking before committing to VSO.
The info in MSDN define the naming rule for .NET
We will use C++.
Is there any default C++ naming convention (rule) check-in policy to TFS Source Control ?
It is hard for us to enforce code naming rule check without automatic tool.
We do not have enough time to create our policy.
Hoping there will be a default C++ naming rule policy soon.
Thanks !4 votes
Markdown is now widely adopted and that would be a more fluid experience when writing workitems.
Having to select text and click on a toolbar to do basic formatting such as bullet points is not really efficient.
Github like support would allow code snippet in Tasks which might prove to be helpful.17 votes
Add a feature to allow administrators to see which build definitions are using which build process templates. That information is definitely in the database for TFS. Right now I cannot tell if can delete a build process template because I have to look at Every build definition (200+) to see if one of them is using it.1 vote
If a build definition is changed to a different Build Process Template there is currently no way to tell what the previous one used was. If this was logged in the build it would help if someone needs to revert another person's changes.1 vote
Default templates (TfvcTemplate12.xaml and GitTemplate12.xaml) must be updated in the next update to test the exit code of the post and pre custom scripts launch during the build process.
That way, the user could do processing and verifications in these scripts and stop the build if an error occured.
I think that behavior should already have been the default and do not need to customize the build process for such a trivial thing3 votes
Show a warning if extention method has the same signature as extention method. I.e. if I have the following code:
public class SomeClass
public void MyMethod()
Console.WriteLine("Instance method is called");
public static class ExtMethods
public static void MyMethod(this SomeClass c)
Console.WriteLine("Extention method is called");
and try to call this method:
SomeClass s = new SomeClass();
IntelliSense of Visual Studio just mark method as instance method. I can overlook it, don't know about existing an instance method and spend hours to understand why my extention method does not work properly.1 vote
There is no way to pass the current culture with to WPF. The IETF language tag is not enough, since all changes in the region and language format settings will be dismissed.
The only workarounds so far are to pass the converter culture to every single binding or to bind only strings.3 votes
This good idea! :D

It would be cool if in WP it will be possible to software terminate session with bluetootn low energy device. IOS and android has such a possibility, and it is very useful when working with a BLE!3 votes

If i want only coding on c# and i dont want have not needed tools for example : TeamExplorer or DataBase tools - for this reason i can open Git / SQL Server Management Studio.
Why i must install this? And some of this tools loaded resources when opening IDE.
Add nuget-ide plugins for this actions!
I want to cancel all checkbox tools what i dont need when installing IDE.
PS : I dont want see VB in Visual Studio at all places. But i cant disable this.1 vote
When you apply the rename refactoring I would like that the file containg the renamed type would also be renamed. This could be a option because I know not everyone uses the one type per file approach.3 votes
One solution per window - horrible!
Or do this optional in settings.
Normal like in Netbeans.16 votes

A useful feature would be able to obtain PerfTips-like functionality when walking the call stack in addition to the Intellitrace event timing.
Even better would be PerfTips-like functionality in Intellitrace to determine the "wrap-up" performance between call-sites.3 votes
When a breakpoint is set rather than highlight the entire line of code, why not highlight the first few characters and then fade it to the background colour? For multi-line breakpoints the highlighting could be reversed and it would fade in over the last few characters.
I think this would be less visually jarring, yet still allow breakpoints to be easily located.1 vote
