I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

    • Add mixed-mode debugging in C# Store Unit Test projects

      Allow mixed-mode debugging in C# Unit Tests for Windows/Windows Phone Store apps. It is hard to write C++/CX components and debug crashes in C# Unit Tests.

      • Promote User Code files in "Navigate To" Results

        I often use the Navigate To feature (CTRL+,) in Visual Studio with Visual Basic WinForms projects I am working on. When searching for the name of a form, the {FORM_NAME}.Designer.vb file usually ends up first in the search results above the {FORM_NAME}.vb file even though the latter is what I really want 99% of the time. It would be nice if the tool-generated code files were pushed below the user-generated files in the search results so that {FORM_NAME}.vb always came first.

          • Support IANA standard geo:// uris

            That would be great if standard IANA uris geo;// (see RFC http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5870 ) would be supported by default maps apps on windows (both mobile and desktop counterparts).

            It would allow easier cross platform / generic behavior. This kind of uri is currently supported by Android.

            • report templated link errors in a form that can be cut/pasted as explicit template instantiations

              Right now I find myself taking the linker error (missing symbol), removing the mangled part, editing slightly and creating a specific template instantiation. GCC I believe offers a mechanism to do this.

                • ContextMenu launched with keyboard should not 'select' a menu item based on a non-moving mouse cursor

                  When a context menu is summoned with the keyboard Menu button, the 'current item' should not be affected by a non-moving mouse cursor which happens to be over one item in the menu. Users with both hands on the keyboard who trigger the context menu with the keyboard expect to be able to up/down from the top of the menu, or to have their hot-keys recognized from top to bottom (eg, a context menu launched in an MVC view has menu items 'view in Browser' and 'Breakpoints' both selectable with 'b').

                      • Style BasedOn - Multiple inheritance, DynamicResources

                        Currently you can only set a Style's BasedOn to one other style (With out a custom markup extension). This should be changed to be a bit more like CSS and allow multiple inheritance. The benefit is that you could give a button a "LeftNavigationButton" style AND a "VeryImportantButton" style.

                        A warning during compilation about conflicting styles would work great here.

                        To aid this feature, style's BasedOn should also support DynamicResources so that not all styles have to be local.

                              The training video's from Beth Massi have been an excellent way to instroduce the power of Lightswitch, I just wish now there were more video's like this to take things even further, if more of the programming team could spend time on the forum it would help persuade more people like me who are still on the fence!

                                A feature to inject language into any string would be nice.

                                What is "Language Injection"? As JetBrains implemented, editor treats given string as if it is in another language. so one can write an HTML template in javascript variable with full intellisense support.

                                  • Improve support for multiple users using Web Deploy Publish Preview

                                    The Preview pane of the Web Publishing dialog in Visual Studio works quite nicely when you're the only developer working on the codebase. However, it seems to fall down when multiple developers publish. It includes a lot of phantom changes in the list (once you drill in, the two panes of the diff are the same).

                                    Perhaps the information used to detect changed files could be cached on the web application that is being published to. Of anything, that would be a great publish profile option.

                                      • Allow Visual Studio to modify its colors when running under Windows 8 High Contrast Themes

                                        When running windows in high contrast mode, visual studio changes the color theme to "High Contrast" and does not allow it to be changed. This should be allowed if someone wants to deviate from high contrast mode.

                                        • open source Expression Design

                                          Expression Design is still used often by XAML developers to design assets for their applications. It is useful, but lacks some features that would make it a true competitor against Adobe Illustrator.

                                          Open sourcing the application would give developers like myself the opportunity to continue the development and make this great tool even better.
