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.

We look forward to hearing from you!

  3. Fix MSTest v14 handling of ExpectedException

    Currently, MSTest v14 fails tests which are marked with ExpectedException, even when that's the exception type thrown. When I run the same tests with MSTest v12, it works as expected and passes.

  4. Add the ability to link a task card to running specific tests. Right now testers need to hunt and peck for the exact test suite for a PBI.

  5. For Data Driven MS test, file attached to test context in one data row execution , should not be attached again for subsequent data rows

    If a file is to be attached to test results API [this.TestContext.AddResultFile()] is used. For data driven test on using this API, for test execution of each row, the files of previous rows are reattached. i.e if file1 is added for row1 and file2 is added for row2, the test result would contain 3 files . 2 copies of file1 and I copy of file 2. So for a data source of N rows, there will be n+ (n-1) + (n-2) + ......+1 files attached.

    This is not required. It would be good if for every row only files added…

  6. Add feature to auto-generate code for recreating the selected object in its current state (for later testing)

    It would be nice to be able recreate the state of a complicated object for unit testing scenarios. I'm thinking: during a debug session, I hover over an object that has been initialized, select an option for auto-generating code to reproduce that object, and it spits out a code block that would recreate that object exactly as is. Perhaps that would be thrown into a snippet for later use. This would be useful for unit/integration testing, where it could be difficult/tedious to create a complicated object.

  8. Add a heatmap view to the test explorer

    A heatmap view for the test explorer would give a nice visual of the progress, especially if I have to glance down the aisle to check on progress.

  10. If a test is part of an ordered test, it'd be nice if the references indicated that. I don't know if a test has been left out.

  13. Have a Test->Add New Test

    I would love to have a Test->Add New Test option under the Test menu. It would give the shell of a function and it could have generic name based on the TestClass name.
    Adding new tests isn't that hard, but this would just make it more slick.

  14. Importing LTAR files to sql server automatically

    Importing "LoadTest archive results (LTAR file)" to SQL Server through "Open and manage load test results" in Visual Studio is time taking. Having an automated way of importing all LTAR file to SQL server will help in saving time. We are not able to import all the LTAR to SQL server in an automated way?

  16. Please make qtagent32 Large Address Aware

    Heap fragmentation, combined with the overhead of enabling code coverage, frequently leads to our tests failing with OutOfMemoryException even with only 1.2 GB committed. Having the qtagent32 binary marked with largeaddressaware would relieve many of these fragmentation problems. I have to turn code coverage off to have a chance of a successful test run.
    I can provide DMPs if needed.

  18. Is on-premise web performance testing enabled for Visual Studio 2017?

    I'm trying to look for a guide on how to go about performance testing on premise for VS 2017. So far all the guides point to VSTS or cloud base. And the only guide I found about on premise mentions only VS2015 and 2013.

  19. Support services behind CloudFlare in Cloud Based Load Testing

    When running Cloud Based Load Testing against a service behind CloudFlare's DDoS protection layer, all request fail on "Could not create SSL/TLS secure channel". This makes it impossible to load test services that use this protection layer.

  20. Support Owner attribute on Test Classes

    TestMethods support owner attribute, but TestClasses don't. Sometimes it's impractical to stamp owners on each and every test method. It would be nice to have the ability to specify ownership at a higher level.
