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".
(thinking…)

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

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

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

  1. Allow WebView <video> tag to go "Fullscreen"

    Currently (as of 8.1) when there is an embedded video in a WebView and the user presses the fullscreen button the video expands to only the extents of the WebView; which isn't fullscreen if the WebView is surrounded by other controls.

    There should be a property on the WebView that controls the fullscreen behavior such that it is possible to fill the entire viewable area of the display with the video and its controls.

    • Microsoft Test Manager - Provide option to export all test cases to Microsoft Excel from Test Suite with User applicable columns

      Let say I create a Test Suite with 500 Test Cases & I have assigned them to multiple testers.
      So I need option to export all these Test Cases from test suites into excel file so that I can calculate individual assignment in terms of execution time also in terms of other factor.
      Also, after doing some changes like configuration / Tester,etc , it should allow me to publish it back

      • Allow font change for multiple rows in Test Manager

        Please add an enhancement that allows you to select the entire manual script (all rows) or by specific row selection and then modify the text format, Font, color, etc. It is ridiculous you have to click in each cell individually to change the format.

        • Enable Edit and Continue for Win RT

          Enable Edit and Continue for Windows Store/Win RT apps. Would also be great for Windows Phone apps, and since they should be moving to Win RT runtime eventually this feature should work for both ?

          • Bring Back the Visual Studio Development Server in 2013

            The Visual Studio Development Server was removed from Visual Studio 2013. This made it possible to have zero setup for my developers directly out of the source repository. That is not possible with IIS Express only setting. I have refused to upgrade our enterprise to Visual Studio 2013 because of this omission.

            • Have resources ResXFileCodeGenerator generate partial class.

              The ResXFileCodeGenerator tool for Resource files generates classes that are difficult to extend / augment as needed. Please give the code generator emit classes as partial to allow customisation / extension.

                It would be good if we show the build percentage during building a solution. We will not be knowing how much is pending....

                • Add a Filter attribute for extension methods using interface as type only applicable for certain instances

                  Add a Filter like attribute for extension methods using interface as type only applicable for certain instances, which are dervied from the interface,
                  For example if i had derived a many instance from a interface, then i am return the interface alone for each instance like abstract factory,

                  Then there is a need to write some method for particular instance so i have to write a Extension method for the interface type, now this method is available and visible for the instances which are implemented that, if there any filter attribute to specify the extension method based on interface applicable…

                  • Create 1 Visual Studio Express edition

                    At work I use VS Ultimate edition which has everything in one installed version of VS. But when I get home I work with the express editions. Right now I have 3 installed for 2013 just to do my side projects. It would be nice if there was only 1 edition. And it would make portable class library work easier.

                      • Coded UI suport for SAP as SAp is where most of the tests are automated and people are ready to invest in automaiton

                        Enterprise applications like SAP and AX are long term investments and IT managers are spending their money for automaton as the ROI is good and that's where MS VS also should focus their energy to make Coded UI as the preferred automation tool and win against competition like QTP and Renorex

                        • TFS Export Changesets to (.xls, .doc, .txt, .html ...)

                          If you open the menu item File->Source Control->Find In Source Control->Changesets... (you must be in Source Control Explorer for this to be available). This will open the Find Changesets dialog. You can then search for change sets by date on a given source folder but not have any button for export result in dialogs.

                          Please make additinal export button in dialog that I attach here.

                            • LightSwitch for Sharepoint Forms

                              At SPC14 it was announced, in the absence of InfoPath, Access is the MSFT choice for SharePoint forms over relational data targeted to 'Information Workers'. LightSwitch should be the choice for solutions needing more extensibility for 'Power-Info Workers' and developers.

                              Vote here but also vote on http://officeforms.uservoice.com (see below)

                              To make this a reality, Access and LightSwitch teams need to collaborate closely to get the two HTML frameworks aligned in a way that an upsize would be doable from Access Web App to LightSwitch Cloud Business App.

                              The Office team is soliciting feedback about this on uservoice.

                              Here are some…

                              • Implement Interface members Implicitly

                                It 'll be nice if we can declare the interface members implicitly without mention the implemented member from the interface.
                                In other words, we can write for example this

                                Public Sub Method1()

                                End Sub

                                instead of

                                Public Sub Method1() Implements InterfaceName.Method1

                                End Sub

                                • Add More Code Snippet Function (Built in functions)

                                  There are only 3 Code Snippet functions in the IDE. Please continue ot add more. For example, it would be nice to have:

                                  2. ToPascalCase()

                                  functions, and in addition I'd like to be able to define variables (eg: $variable$) that are a certain case.A use case for this is properties in C# where the backing field is typically camel case while the property name is Pascal case. I should be able to to simply type the type of the property and the name and the IDE can use the ToCamelCase() function to define (and thus output) the backing…
