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".

  1. Stop sorting interface methods alphabetically

    Go back to what you did in VS 2010 where the interface methods order is preserved in the implementation class, I got irritated when Dispose method is the first method to start with. I wonder how didn't that irritate the developers and QAs !?

    • NGen should be able to produce optimized binaries outside the GAC, so that it could run without Administrator rights

      NGEN sould be able to produce binaries in a specified local folder, outside the GAC, without requiring Administrator rights.
      On the other side, there could be a runtime flag to put in app.config to specify where optimized binaries can be found so that the application would benefit from the pre-generated binaries instead of using jit compiler.

      This would respond to scenarios where applications are not deployed in "program files" by an MSI but rather stored in the user local storage (for ex. for a silent updates mechanism) but requiring the performance gain brought by ngenized binaries.

      • Provide a clear statement of direction for XAML/WPF so that the dev community knows where to concentrate their efforts.

        I am confused about which technology has a future: Silverlight, WPF, or WinRT. What should I choose for new development now? Why is there so much variation in the libraries and toolsets? How do I know that anything I choose is not going to be abandoned by MS in one year's time - like .NET in WinRT? WPF seems like an abandoned building - every WPF question that I look up on Stack Overflow was answered between 2008 and 2010, unlike the MS web stack which is constantly evolving. MS, please support Windows programming with a clear and coherent vision,…

            • allow individuals to remove themselves from VSTS accounts.

              Working as a consultant, I've slowly gathered access to a set of accounts I no longer contribute to (or have been abandoned altogether). I should be able to remove my own access to these accounts.

              • Add exclusion list to filter error list

                When I have a lot of errors I want to hide some of them so I can focus on the rest. Search Error List is great, but can only search for one single term.

                • insert generated c# methods in a consistent location

                  when generating methods in c# the new methods are appearing in odd an inconsistent locations.

                  If the method is being generated in the same class, it used to be inserted below the method it was generated from. If the new method was generated in a different class, it would be inserted at the bottom.

                  Now its inconsistent. I just generated 4 methods in a row into a separate class, and they appeared in the middle, with existing methods between them.
                  Methods generated in the same file are appearing two or three methods below the current method.

                  • Editor Formatting: Leave block on single line option is broken

                    Options -> Text Editor -> C# -> Formatting -> Wrapping -> Leave block on single line.

                    The above option is broken and does not do what the example suggests it should do. If you type

                    public int Foo { get; set; }

                    in the editor. It will reformat it to

                    public int Foo
                    {
                    get; set;
                    }

                    which is exactly what it's NOT supposed to do. I've played with the options as suggested in the following thread and it has not worked.

                      Özellikler penceresindeki nesne olaylarının yanına açıklayıcı olarak animasyon (GIF) eklenirse çok iyi olur.

                      • Fix inconsistency: c# or VB use different UI to display EXACTLY the same information

                        WHY

                        a c# and vb project properties use a different UI to display exactly the same properties ?

                        example:
                        vb => [window]properties/[tab]compiler/[button]advanced compilation options/define debug
                        c# => [window]properties/[tab]generate/define debug
                        vb =>[window]properties/[tab]references
                        c# => solution explorer

                        same goes for different kind of project (console vs web for exemple)

                        • Happiness comes from satisfaction

                          A happy man is a satisfied man. Where does this satisfaction come from? How rightly it is said a man is a pleasure seeker and thus satisfaction lies in the pleasures of life. Talking about pleasures of life, what strikes the mind is most certainly *** or arousal of ****** desires. We live in the world surrounded by the words like kink, flirt, naughtiness, being ***** and many more. And therefore, what makes up our mind or what shapes our perceptions is somewhat similar too. We love to be teased, we love to chase and we love excitement of being…

                                  • Adanced file search for Solution Explorer Search

                                    It would be very nice if I could make a search in Solution Explorer like this one : "MyFolderA/Items/abcd/AClass.cs" . Right now we can only search for "AClass.cs" or "Items" etc. Since Solution Explorer displays the solution tree (and most of them are real files related) than, I'm searching the files or folders: With this ability of searching with both directories and file names Solution Explorer will be very usefull.

                                    • to add support for workitem management in TEE CLC.

                                      It'd be great if I could use tf workitem on Linux/Mac, just as I could do tfpt workitem if I only used Windows/VS.

                                      • If you stop a test case half way through running, becuase your debugging, show it within it's own column within Test Explorer

                                        When in the process of writing or fixing a test, I constantly stop the test half way through. Which in turn causes the test just show up within the not run column. I then move off the test to fix an issue and then have to file navigate back to the test in order to run it again. Having it under a header of active development would allow me to isolate the tests I'm working on so I don't have always find the test within a large list or navigate back to the file only to right click and kick…

                                        • If file is read only when compiling and the user hits cancel, stop compiling.

                                          User scenario: User edits a file and starts to run. But the file has not been checked out yet and the "Save of Read-Only File" message box pops up. User clicks cancel so they can grab the full path and check the file out within Source Depot.

                                          Issue: User hits cancel so they don't forget to check out the file. But the compile continues to run the old code. Which is not helpful to the user at all. Cancel should mean cancel the compile. Just like when a user is restarting their computer and a file has not been saved.…
