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".

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.

  1. Something we doing often and on a large scale is bridging our backend and frontend servers via a service architecture. Frontend: view model

    We bridge our backend and frontend servers via HttpClient to create a service architecture.

    Frontend: view models (with a Vm prefix) delivered via Api Controllers to SPAs written in Typescript.

    Backend: service models (with a Sm prefix) delivered via Api Controllers to frontend clients. The backend is multi-tenant and local to the data. Backend services aggregate repository queries using a mixture of stored procedures, ADO.Net style queries and EF. The latency between the frontend and backend requires this separation of concern.

    Backend services are bridged via a common interface - say IFooService. Generated HttpClient proxies satisfying the common interface are…

    Closing as general feedback that isn’t specifically actionable at this point. Rather than us change your title and description, if you could open another item that speaks to templating code, or WebAPI consumption, that would be great to get that feedback.
