    • Make the codelens tool tip a bit wider

      Standard Git commits should wrap at around 72 characters. The codelens tooltip is just short enough to usually force those lines to wrap prior to the 72 characters. This results in a difficult to read commit message.

      It'd be great if there was some intelligence to detect commits in this format and make the tooltip wide enough to support them

      • Build a good T4 editor

        The current editing experience in T4 is terrible. Please make T4 templates easier to build. It would be great if we could provide an annotated template file and then have the editor stub out a starting point.

        • VS2015 Emulator for Android on Windows 10 upgrade

          Many bugs prevent operation of VS Emulator for Android.
          Mostly configuration and networking issues, and Hyper-V networking conflicts, cause launch to fail. Usually after OS Starting message that never completes.
          Switching between Hyper-V and non-Hyper-V OS required for using VS2015 emulator or Genymotion & VirtualBox emulation is complex enough, but when the Hyper-V configuration fails the situation is bad.

          • Create a windows universal datagrid control

            We need a real datagrid in windows universal applications. This should support x:Bind, x:Phase and x:Defer. The gridview and listview controls do not have the required row and column grid functionality.

            • Improve TFS Restriction access

              Hi,

              The missing features appear when we want to give access to external users, to the bugs they entered in TFS.

              It should be great to have the possibility, in the same idea as stackholder, to define more specific restriction.

              Example : I would like to allow external users to only track the bugs they entered and to forbid any access to other things.

              Until now there is a problem in the view. The external users have to have a minimum of permissions, and the result is that everyone can see every projects, team and so on. They can see…

                • Let text selection follow the parsers precedences

                  When I'm not sure whether parentheses are needed or not, it would be very simple if I could just select the text by persistently clicking at the point of doubt.

                  It is a feature of Mathematica, from which this picture shows two examples where i keep clicking the same spot which makes the selection increase by one token class for each click.

                  • Remove/Delete dialog should show up when deleting files in Solution Explorer (VisualC)

                    When I select one or more files in the solution explorer and press the delete key, I usually get a dialog where I can choose to remove or delete the file.

                    The problem is that I only get this dialog if the file is aktually stored in the project folder or in a subfolder of the project folder. If the file is stored in another folder I don't get any dialog and the file reference is automatically removed from the solution.

                    The storage location of the file should not make a difference.

                    A more detailed description can be found here: …

                    • Property setter value modifier

                      add support for changing property input.

                      like this:

                      public string property { get{....}, private int set{....}}

                      This property takes int (value type is int). but returns string.

                      then we dont have to do some logic(ex: converting) outside property.

                      thanks

                      • pull request -- syntax highlighting for scala when viewing code changes in a PR

                        Hi,

                        Is there a list showing the supported languages when viewing code changes in a PR? obviously, scala syntax highlight is not supported right now? Is there any plan about this? Thanks!

                        • Improve Asynchronous Programming Model

                          The asynchronous programming model introduced in .NET with the async/await keywords was a step in the right direction and a great improvement over previous design, but there are a few fundamental and disruptive qualities to it that need addressing:

                          1) Zombie-code. This is the biggest issue with .NET asynchronous programming model currently. Once asynchronous code finds its way into your code base, all code referencing it (and being called from it) must also start to incorporate asynchronous keywords and functionality. This results in a phenomenon which has been described as "Async Zombie Infection." It would obviously be great/ideal not to…

                          • Add the ability to set privilege level for each unit test method.

                            Programs can behave differently depending on whether the current user is running as admin or not. Currently there doesn't seem to be a way to unit test this other than opening two instances of VS with different permissions and running the unit tests twice and checking if the right ones pass.

                              • Bring back build editing and management UI into Visual Studio

                                I notice in the latest Visual Studio 2015 RC that all management of builds (both xaml and vNext builds) has moved to the web portal.

                                As a TFS build user it is very inefficient for me to keep having to switch to the browser to see what is happening with my builds.

                                Please bring back the build queue UI for xaml builds back into visual studio
                                It would also be nice to have new UI in visual studio to edit vNext builds and also view the vNext build queue.

                                • 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.

                                  • Task Runner: add ConfigurationName command line param to Gulp/Grunt command line

                                    There's currently no easy way of altering the behavior of Gulp scripts based on the current project build configuration (Release/Debug etc).

                                    If you passed the current build config as a parameter to gulp we could use something like yargs (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/23023650/is-it-possible-to-pass-a-flag-to-gulp-to-have-it-run-tasks-in-different-ways) to adjust script processing as required, for example only perform Javascript minification on Release builds.

                                    Example command line (note extra command line arg at the end):

                                    cmd.exe /c gulp -b "C:\Solution1\Test.WebSite" --color --gulpfile "C:\Solution1\Test.WebSite\Gulpfile.js" default -Release

                                    (Note: I haven't used Grunt but I assume the same problem also exists when running Grunt via the task scheduler.)

                                    Cheers,
                                    Nick

                                      Please add Visual Studio to the Windows 10 store. This would make installs a lot more convenient!

                                        • IntelliTest: Add an easy way to delete generated code

                                          It is often necessary to delete generated testes from the g.cs files. I think this should be an easily available feature.

                                          It should be accessible here:

                                          * A button in the IntelliTest tool window that clears the g.cs file for the currently selected method.
                                          * A button in the IntelliTest tool window that opens a dialog where the user can choose:
                                          - delete tests from this method/class/project/solution
                                          - delete files or just clear them (might be important for source control)

                                          The same features should be available as context menu items in IntelliTest-related files.
