        • loosen c# langauge to allow static functions in namespace and port python math libraries to .net

          personally, I think python and javascript sucks as a language... I wish somebody would find a way to map the python and javascript api's into .net so we could get rid of them and use a real program language for everything...

          if you have to make c# a little less object oriented and more functional to do that...its worth messing the c# language up to do it just to get rid of the sucky python and javascript languages that everybody loves to hate...

          biggest flaw of c# is that it doesn't suck enough to complete with sucky languages like python…

          • In c# string.Format is used so much it be great to have it preset like Foreach does.

            So you time you enter string.Format space space and it prefills
            Ie string.Format (“”,);

            Also have a super command so you don’t have to type string.Format
            Have like stFor space space then do Ie string.Format (“”,);

            • Allow Microsoft Word style commenting in C#

              Please allow inserting comment on a specific location (like a ballon shows up on the right side of MS Word) rather than adding // at every line. It will be easier to give details or purpose of code right on it explaining its custom details on the separate window on the right side just like MS Word.

                I would like to program in C # with Wpf, but the code in visual form as the nodes, so we could have greater freedom to assemble the code more efficiently and with fewer analysis complications, making the reanalysis of the data highly operative and easy to understand. for non-experienced users having a better free-form order and leaving the writing purely to a new evolution something like the legos that serve to assemble anything quickly due to their prefabricated forms

                • Cast to var

                  I would like to be able to do this:

                  foo = (var)bar;

                  which would mean casting bar to the declared type of foo.

                  • Let interfaces be implemented by a field

                    This suggestion is migrated to Developer Community. Please use below link to view the current status.
                    https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/idea/351762/let-interfaces-be-implemented-by-a-field.html
                    The sample:

                    interface IFoo {
                    void DoFoo();
                    }

                    class Bar : IFoo => _foo {
                    private IFoo _foo;
                    Bar(IFoo foo) { _foo = foo;}
                    }

                    Why:
                    - supports aggregation over inheritance
                    - implicit use of the GoF strategy pattern
                    - syntax fits property/method expressions

                    How:
                    - defines an explicit interface implementation
                    - the field is implicitly a non-nullable reference

                    Use:
                    - to modularize behavior and easily aggregate it
                    - to vary the implementation, for instance for testing
                    - to solve annoying things like…

                        • Allow partial constructors in C#

                          For auto-generated code sometimes it would be useful to to add an additional constructor in a partial class. An example I struck recently was trying to add some additional constructor code to an EF generated class where I didn't have control over the generated code.

                          An obvious problem is invocation order and I'm not sure of what would be best but perhaps some modifiers could be added to the front of the method:

                          [InvokeFirst] // Must be first, error on multiple definitions
                          [InvokeHigher]
                          [InvokeDefault] // Default when not specified
                          [InvokeLower]
                          [InvokeLast] // Must be last, error on multiple definitions

                            • Add static indexers

                              Altough there was this comment on the very same proposal: "Thanks for taking the time to share this suggestion. This item has been around for a couple of versions of Visual Studio and we haven’t acted on it. Looking at the VS “15” plans, we’re not going to take action on this item, so we’re going to close it. If the suggestion is still relevant, please either take a look to see if there’s another suggestion that’s similar that you can vote on, or open a new suggestion."

                              I do suggest the very same thing: static indexers.

                              • Allow Conditional attribute also to non void methods

                                Currently it's possible to use
                                [Conditional("CONDITION")]
                                only with void function. So we have to use #if with non void function to get a default value.
                                Please, extend the attribute in order to return a specified default value or null for reference type.

                                  Hello,
                                  I am Computer Engineer from Turkey. Graduated From Istanbul Technical University In 2015.
                                  I was Intern at Microsoft Turkey in 2012 and worked at Sony Turkey, Siemens, Asseco SEE..

                                  My suggestion is make Exception Handling or changing signature mandatory..
                                  For example, if I throw an Exception in my method, I must decleare that this method may throws an Exception so a user can see the type of exceptions that can be thrown from this method.

                                  This is the case in JAVA.
                                  Example: …

                                    It would be so much easier if you just had a run button.

                                    • Use of unassigned local variable

                                      If a Boolean is guarding both the initialization and use of a local variable, VS should attempt to recognize that. There are other similar circumstances that have been introduced to VS recently.

                                      This actually leads to improved code. Forcing a var to be initialized even when it ultimately won't be used ends up blocking VS's ability to alert the developer when the var really is being used when it shouldn't.

                                      Example:

                                      public int Test(bool flag)
                                      {
                                      int value;
                                      if (flag) value = 0;
                                      int result = 0;
                                      if (flag) result = value + 1;
                                      return result;
                                      }

                                      "value" should not…
