Visual Studio IDE

Announcement: Last fall, we migrated this forum to Visual Studio Developer Community to provide you one convenient and responsive system for all feedback. As the final step in the migration, this forum will be closed off completely on June 1st, 2019. We encourage you to visit Visual Studio Developer Community where you can now suggest new ideas, browse and vote on existing ideas, and engage with Visual Studio teams.

We’d like your suggestions and ideas to help us continuously improve future releases of Visual Studio, so we’ve partnered with UserVoice, a third-party service, to collect your feedback. Please do not send any novel or patentable ideas, copyrighted materials, samples or demos for which you do not want to grant a license to Microsoft.

This site is for feature suggestions; if you need to file a bug, you can visit our Developer Community website to get started.

Note: your use of the portal and your submission is subject to the UserVoice Terms of Service & Privacy Policy and license terms.

We look forward to hearing from you!
- The Visual Studio Team

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 support and comment on it.

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

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

  1. Allow new in C# without giving Type

    see https://zoomicon.wordpress.com/2015/08/23/suggestion-allow-new-in-c-without-giving-type/ for a description of this suggestion

    Instead of

    List<CultureInfo> result = new List<CultureInfo>();

    in C# I’d prefer to be able to write

    List<CultureInfo> result = new ();

    inside the () one would be able to pass contructor parameters and also they should be able to use

    SomeClass v = new (someParam) { someProperty = …, otherProperty = … };

    syntax, that is be able to initialize properties of the class

    The idea is to allow syntax like:

    SomeClass v = new (someParam) { someProperty = …, otherProperty = … };

    and

    Type v = new (…){…};

    which is…

  2. bitfields

    Bitfields are necessary for formatting and parsing binary files, Ethernet packet data, etc. where fields are packed and do not have a standard length (not 8, 16, 32 bits, etc.). Right now you HAVE to write code to do this. In C++ you just follow a member variable with a colon and its length, in bits. (Of course, then packing should work down to the bit level as well)
