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".

    • Do not search in jquery and minimized files

      Allow user to exclude files/folders from search and save this setting for the project/solution.

      jQuery, minimized files and other JavaScript files "pollute" the search results and it is annoying to scroll pages and pages over minimized source code.

        • GDI: Incorrect exception for LinearGradientBrush

          GDI: When creating a LinearGradientBrush with a width and/or height of 0 you get a System.OutOfMemoryException while you are actually not running out of memory.

          Give a correct exception instead of an OutOfMemoryException!

            • Please show a progressbar (bottom) when visual studio is starting.

              Please show a progressbar (bottom) when visual studio is starting. It will be more interactive rather than seeing a static window tile.

              • Allow custom sorting of Properties in PropertyInspector

                I am hosting der WorkflowDesigner in a WPF application. It would be great, if the sortorder of properties in the PropertyInspectorView could be changed. It always sorts alphabetically.

                For example I would like to show the "Username" before the "Password"-Property.

                • Output window should detect if user is manually scrolling

                  If a user is manually scrolling and therefore looking for something particular in the output window the window should stop auto scrolling. Normal operation should proceed when user starts another debug session(F5).

                  • Allow a custom Solution root directory

                    Currently $(SolutionDir) indicates the "Solution directory" but is not a configurable value. I want to keep all of my IDE files outside of the main code directory, so I have all of my visual studio files in an arbitrary directory apart from my .cpp and .h files.

                    Current workaround is to just keep the .sln file at the root directory of the project. I would like to decouple this requirement.

                    • Add NotEnoughSpaceException derived from IOException

                      Right now .Net Framework includes following exception classes derived from IOException:

                      DirectoryNotFoundException

                      EndOfStreamException

                      FileNotFoundException

                      FileLoadException

                      PathTooLongException

                      When there is not enough space, .Net throws just IOException and developer have to check Message property to recognize this case.

                        • Export/Apply Installer Configuration

                          One thing missing. I would love to be able to export the selection of installed elements of a VS instalaltion into some sort of file (XML?) and then be able to apply this on another computer (leaving to the missing elements being applied to an installation.

                          This makes it a lot easier to get new people up to speed. On more complex solutions, the number of VS elements that must be installed can be significant. Creating a manual list of which languages, which .NET versions etc. are needed takes time.

                          This way one could have an official "you need those…

                                    • Update WPF to support the latest Unicode version (10.0.0)

                                      It looks like the latest version of WPF only supports characters up to the Unicode 7.0 specification that was released on 2014-07-16: http://www.unicode.org/versions/Unicode7.0.0/

                                      That was over 3 years ago. The latest Unicode specification is 10.0.0 and was released on 2017-07-20: http://unicode.org/versions/Unicode10.0.0/

                                      It would be nice if WPF could be updated to support the latest version of Unicode. Right now there are a lot of characters, especially emojis, that don't get rendered properly and just appear as rectangles.

                                        • Add monogame to visual studio installer

                                          I think it good idea. For some lazy users is more comfortable to add monogame to visual studio via visual studio installer.
