LightSwitch Solution Explorer: Data Sources, Screens, ADD Menues
In solutin explorer you have data sources and screens folder; today the screens will be the menu; instead, please add a new folder with name menues and then we can drag and drop screens into the menu folder. As suggested in another idea; add posibility to create folders into data sources folder and screens folder. In the new folder menu; the added new folders will be main menu and its folders will be sub-menues. Please remember to add posibility to add icons to the menues, security, etc.
I strongly support this idea.. the solution explorer in VS is very confortable, I think LS should improve the development IDE with adding full support to all functionallities of the classic Solution Explorer, remembering expanded and collapsed nodes, allowing to create subfolders, etc..
I know this is difficult because the internal structure is composed by one big file, this should be another improvement, to split the application definition into several files, this could help the performance a lot, because I'm pretty sure that the parsing of that big XML should be slow.
The other improvement I thought is about the "jumps" of the IDE when you have several relations in a entity definition, if you click a property, sometimes it changes the layout and it "jumps" causing to click another property.
