      • From XAML to ZAML

        What we need is a better language than XAML that is appropriate for the same task (visual tree construction, use in visual designer).

        There are a lot of defects to XAML from a language point of view, such as: poor typing including lack of generics, weird syntax, poor scoping, excessive use of global variables, lack of static variables, etc.

        At the same time, the basic feature of XAML -- providing a declarative syntax -- can also be accomplished in C#. Just replace, say, '<StackPanel> ... </StackPanel>' by 'new StackPanel() { ... }'. Perhaps a bit of syntactic sugar would allow…

            • Let me edit Android xml UI files in Visual Studio and add drag and drop support for Android Widgets. I would love to use Visual Studio this!

              I do not want to downgrade and have to use Android Studio for Android app development. Visual Studio is light years ahead of other IDE's. But without GUI xml designer its not really an option. Xamarin is too expensive and introduces too much risk for memory leaks and bugs that do not exist in Android Java code.

                        • HTML intellisense from typings

                          It would be so awesome if HTML files knew about Typescript typings for classes I have in my project or classes I've imported type definitions for.
                          When writing an Angular 1 or 2 component/directive/controller with some data bound HTML, I often misspell or forget variable names & class properties I'm working with. See screenshot for what would be the coolest thing ever.

                            • Improve the Error Handling on Razor Files

                              The errors for Razor files is 100% useless.

                              If I forget at ) or a } or a ;, I get 100 errors that are not even related to the issue at hand. Intellisense is also completely screwed at that point too.

                                  • Oracle needs to be incorporated for better experience. I hate my only option being the DEsigners and Oracle Developer tools has its limit.

                                    I need to be able to create a new SQL file that supports Oracle using the ODP.net. I really hate the Query and Table Designers.

                                    • Add support for the CM Language.

                                      We are having to resort to using EMACS for programming with the CM language used by the CET Designer.

                                      It would be handy to have full support for it inside of Visual Studio Professional.

                                      There is an extension for Visual Studio Code (by docura.io) which works as a stop-gap measure but support in the full program would be nice.

                                      • Put quotations around highlighted characters in JSON

                                        When you highlight characters in .json files and try to quote it, the quotes replace the text.
