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.

    A friend of the family needed to buy a couple of office condos for a cheap rs 3 gold new business he was starting, so as a favor, he did so through my dad. Turns out the builder was giving away a cheap Rolex watch to any agent who could sell two units within a certain amount of time. My dad came home ecstatic one day with the news that he was getting a second Rolex, though he was swiftly corrected by my mom.

  6. implement better consistency models

    I'm a noob so bare with me. :) for visual studio online for team projects, i noticed that i can't type something in and have my teammates see until i save it. Is there a reason why you guys didn't implement "live" coding. By that, I mean like have the code change for the other teammates in real time almost like google docs but for programming ( an example of which was implemented by codeshare.io). I'm still learning about distributed systems and different models so i'm not sure if there was something that was hindering doing this on a much…

  8. Let me generate Sample Data from any project type

    Let me generate Sample Data from XAML files in Shared projects. Please. I work around this right now by making new Blank XAML pages in the Phone project, generating the data, moving the data XAML file into the shared project where I need it, and then deleting the Blank XAML page from the Phone project. It is cumbersome, to say the least.

  9. In Blend I would like to see exactly the shape and color of the control

    Hallo!
    To design an UI element you should see exactly how the element Looks like. But I have controls as width as the Screen. I do not know if it ist possible to design a XAML file with a desired width greater as the width of your own Screen.

  11. Merge Visual Studio and Blend for VS

    Now that Blend for Visual Studio is very nearly identical in functionality to Visual Studio, why not just make it into one program? I understand that Blend is tailored toward more visual design oriented use, and not everyone needs that all the time. But they don't have to be different programs -- you could provide a per-file setting (like the new option to enable or disable running code in the designer) to switch between the current VS editor and the rich Blend editor. In my opinion, that would be far better than switching between applications (that message saying "your code…

  12. Support for Validation Rules in the "Create Data Binding..." dialog.

    Please include the ability to add a Validation Rule in the "Create Data Binding..." dialog.

    Currently a Validation Rule can only be added to a binding by editing the XAML directly, using element syntax.

    To make matters worse the validation rule is deleted if the binding is subsequently modified within Blend.

  13. Add these features to Blend.

    Kindly add support for Corel Draw, there is no mesh-fill tool, not able to apply more then one FX, when I apply FX the default status of graphics is lost. XAML has very limited features so I am not able to handle my custom creations, 3Dmax import is not good. Kindly add tools like Corel.

  15. Fix the designer

    Currently the design surface breaks and requires the user to click the reload button. This typically happens if you're switching between VS and Blend, working on the same data files.

  16. Improve design time data within Blend

    Working with design time data is currently slow and very painful. Some simple additions and focus on performance would be very welcome:
    - performance when adding, renaming and deleting properties
    - support for drag and drop to move properties in the tree
    - support for copying both within a data set, but also into another data set

  17. Support a wider range of design time data types

    Currently Blend only supports a limited number of types for design time data (string, numeric, bool, image). For example having support for enum types would be really beneficial

  18. Generate ThemeDictionaries inside Blend

    Add a Theme generator feature to Blend.

    I now generate ThemeDictionaries using Hammer.Pants, https://github.com/Sonnemaf/HAMMER

    I would love to have similar functionality in Blend.

  20. Create StaticResources instead of DynamicResources (WPF)

    I would love to have an extra setting in which you could tell Blend to use StaticResources instead of DynamicResources. In WPF projects Blends always uses a DynamicResource in XAML. I would love to use the faster StaticResources as default.
