  1. Step into properties while debugging holding a modifier key

    When the debugger is set to step over properties (the default) I'd like to be able to hold down a modifier key (say CTRL) and (explicitly) step into the property nevertheless as I do next step

    • Allow changing the nickname of the installation

      You can set nicknames of installs in VS2017 but you cannot change those nicknames when modifying the installation features. This should be allowed.

        • Toggle breakpoint for class (toggle breakpoints for all methods - including property accessors)

          When debugging (esp. unknown code) sometimes you want to set breakpoints at every method (including property accessors I guess) of a class and run it to follow its execution mentally (you then just hit each breakpoint, inspect a bit and continue). That is without doing a step-by-step which is more complex steps.

          I'd like to be able to click on the gutter at the line with the class name and toggle breakpoints for each method/property accessor. Please place the breakpoints for such at the line of each method name, not at the { symbol so that one can collapse all…

          • Extend the Request.Browser object

            Modernizr has become a defacto standard - you could extend the Request.Browser object to include the detects Modernizr provides client-side. Maybe offer it as a collection - Request.Browser.InputTypes["range"] or Request.Browser["deviceorientation"].
            Some of the existing properties are not useful, like Request.Browser.SupportsCss - what level?

                  • Add To Source Control always selects Git instead of TFS

                    I have TFS as my provider, I only work with TFS. I don't want to work with Git.
                    I'm even connected to TFS.

                    but at the bottom of VS2017 there is "Add to Source Control" and Git is the only option.

                    How do I remove this? Why is there no TFS in there?

                    Tools -> Options -> Source Control -> Plug-in Selection is set to VS TFS!

                                Incomprehensible errors occur when you reference a project which targets a different version of the .NET Framework. This causes time wasted troubleshooting "missing" classes or assemblies.

                                  • Allow TFS test suites to be linked under a user story (requirement)

                                    TFS currently allows a user story to have Test Case work items linked under it. But a large user story may have hundreds of test cases that are difficult to organize. It would be better to have a user story with Static Test Suites linked under it, and then test cases within those suites.

                                    • Have an SQLCMD Mode Flag for *.sql Files in a Solution

                                      If a *.sql file is added to a solution that is meant to run in SQLCMD mode, have a flag for it in the properties that indicate it is not just SQL, but SQLCMD. There are two benefits: 1) The file is not flagged as being in error by the solution, and 2) When it is opened in the editor, the editor can automatically put it in SQLCMD mode.

                                      • Fix "View Call Hierarchy" for getters or setters only

                                        Currently, if I try this then the "Call Hierarchy" window says, "Search found no results" even though there should be results.

                                        • Add filtering options in Find Results window

                                          Filter the results by files, projects or even usages - for example, show only appearences that are variables, or names of classes, or that are parts of strings, etc.
