  1. Put Scalar Function and Table-Valued Function at different folder

    SQL Server Management Studio separate Scalar Function and Table-Valued Function at different folder. Hope SSDT can do the same thing.

      • Search option in Entity Data Model

        Hi Team,

        In the Entity Data Model Wizard, the second step shows the list of available database objects viz. Tables/Views/Stored Procedures and user can select one or more from the list of object. While working on database with large number of objects it’s very difficult to scroll-down will it be possible to have quick search option to find the specific object.

        Thanks
        Abhijeet Balla

        • Allow solutions to contain nested solutions

          In my application, we make use of SDKs that are built separately. I would like to include the whole solution in my project, so I can debug easier.

          I know I can select a solution file and it will import the the project files, but this does not work for me because those projects depend on .targets files that are in the $(SolutionDir).

          • System.Web.UI.IValidator interface: Add ValidationGroup property

            Unluckily IValidator interface does not define the ValidationGroup property, which is instead defined as a member of BaseValidator class from which all validators derive (there is a not so clean separation between interface and implementation).

            If you would like to define a custom validator (without using the basic behaviour provided by BaseValidator class), you can easily do that by implementing the IValidator interface, unluckily in this way you lose the possibility of performing validation in validation groups. This because there is no ValidationGroup in the IValidator interface and the Page class, which handles "validation groups" on postbacks through Validate (string…

            • allow build vNext/preview tasks to be conditionally enabled or disabled.

              I would like as much as possible to have a single build definition handle multiple different build scenarios. Something as simple as being able to disable or enable a task based on an expression evaluation would go a long way. For example only running a package push step when "$(Build.SourceBranch) in ('master','dev')" would allow me to restrict the push step while preserving all the others.

                • Allow naming of sln/proj files for Unity VS

                  We have UnityVS* set in our p4ignore file to prevent users from checking in the UnityVS folder after installing as some people have problems with it, but we'd like to be able to check in the solution and project files which have the same naming convention...Would be nice to be able to set the name of the solution/project files.

                  • separate security permission for merging pull requests / enforce peer review

                    This would allow enforcing that all commits to a particular branch get peer-reviewed through the system of pull requests. Right now both direct pushes and pull request merges are controlled via the same permission, making pull requests more of a convention than en enforcement.

                    • Editing a file in Git using VSO should obey the text=auto setting in .gitattributes

                      VSO allows for editing of files in a Git repo using its web interface, which is especially useful for creating markdown files for documentation and welcome pages.

                      Git also has the text=auto feature that can be set in a .gitattributes file to make sure that all line endings stored in the repo are \n, but are converted to the appropriate line ending on checkout (e.g. \r\n on Windows).

                      It appears that, when editing or creating a file using VSO's web interface, the text=auto setting is ignored, resulting in the incorrect line endings being checked in to the Repo.

                      • Coded UI - switch datasource to TestMethods datasource if referred to by separate test method with own datasource

                        The scenario I have is I want a Test Method which finds credentials from a credentials csv file as its datasource and assigns them to variables. It then calls a Login Test Method which uses the details to log in and then uses its own datasource to enter data into the application. This currently does not work as it retains the first datasource which is very inflexible!

                        • Assign bug for broken build to whoever broke the last build

                          Provide a feature in Visual Studio Online that would allow users to indicate (or indite :) the person who last broke the build. The hosted build system would assign subsequent broken build bugs to this person until a new "build bug king" is declared.

                          This designation could complement or replace other team quality traditions, such as a travelling rotten pomodoro held by the most recent offender.

                            • Allow MTM Test Runner to set steps with other values rather than Pass or Fail

                              Currently MTM Test Runner allows setting single steps with Pass or Fail. Single or individual test steps can also be skipped, but in the case they have to be validated (there are expected results associated) the whole Test Case will fail.
                              It is very common to re-use a test suite or a test case to test different releases and sometimes not all the steps apply, the result obtained is uncertain or just the mentioned step is blocked for some reason; therefore MTM Test Runner should allow the user to set single steps with other values such as “Not applicable”, “Blocked”,…

                                    • add some more screenreader accessibility to VSO's markup

                                      Right now, the VSO interface is a little painful to use with a screenreader. I really enjoy the features this platform provides, but I can't use them reliably at the moment and it is more of a hassle to get stuff done right now than it is a time-saver or productivity enhancement. Adding the proper accessibility markup (headings, roles, ARIA/WAI-ARIA markup) to the right fields can make this one of the most accessible and feature-rich project and code management tools out there.

                                        • Add password handling for Visual Code's Git handler

                                          When I try to do a git push it hangs because there is no prompt for a password.
