  1. Cloud Explorer login to Azure should be automatic when user is on AzureAD-joined Windows 10 device

    When I'm logged in to my windows 10 AzureAD-joined device using an Azure login I shouldn't have to enter credentials when using Azure Cloud Explorer. That's the point of AzureAD-join.

    • Display project name in Azure Tools upgrade dialog

      This suggestion is migrated to Developer Community. Please use below link to view the current status.
      https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/idea/351426/display-project-name-in-azure-tools-upgrade-dialog.html
      When opening solution containing Azure projects and only newer version of Azure Tools is installed, there is displayed the upgrade dialog (se attachment) as many times how many Azure projects within the solution. It is confusing when dealing with projects you haven't worked on. Either add project name to the dialog text or display it only once and apply to all.

      • Wrong translation of backlog into French

        This suggestion is migrated to Developer Community. Please use below link to view the current status.
        https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/idea/351335/wrong-translation-of-backlog-into-french.html
        The current translation of "backlog" into french is "journal des travaux en souffrance" however it has no meaning (especially the "souffrance" part that would mean "suffering") and gave me a hard time understanding what it is.

        A better translation would be "travaux en cours".

            Thank you for logging this suggestion!

            For the PerfTips part – we have a bug tracking this issue internally to investigate what the problem could be.

            For the new Expression Evaluation (being able to evaluate Lambdas) in Windows Phone – this is something we are currently working on and we are targeting one of our future releases. Once that is complete I will update this item to let you know!

            Thanks,

          • Synthax highlighting for files

            This suggestion is migrated to Developer Community. Please use below link to view the current status.
            https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/idea/351425/synthax-highlighting-for-files.html
            I am able to set the type of a file in Visual C++ via the property pages (in my case C++ header) but it doesn't get a proper syntax highlighting.
            There is another option that can do that but I think if the type of the file is set via the property pages VS should recognize that and automatically apply the proper syntax highlighting and other code editor features.

                • Add markup validation for missing whitespace between attributes

                  This suggestion is migrated to Developer Community. Please use below link to view the current status.
                  https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/idea/351306/add-markup-validation-for-missing-whitespace-betwe.html
                  HTML/ASPX/ASCX markup validation fails to detect no space between attributes

                  No markup validation feedback is given when markup has an element with attributes that should have a space between them but the space is missing. It is a very difficult visual cue to spot and without IDE support it can be cumbersome to identify the problem. Only the .xml file editor gives "No whitespace" feedback; the editors for .html and .ascx files do not.

                  It is a frustrating inconvenience that we have become…
