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.

    • Improve tooltips for type aliases

      The tooltip for a type alias just points you back to the original type. Especially for type providers, where it's very common to alias most of the generated types, this is not very useful, as the types aliased to are not well-know by the developer.

      The proposal is to change those tooltips from this:

      type t = ABBREVIATION

      to this:

      type t = ABBREVIATION
      = EVENTUAL TYPE AFTER REMOVING ABBREVIATIONS

      • Attach VS to remote FSI

        With cross-platform CLR moving full steam ahead it would be great to see some features to assist with developing against other platforms from VS. One area that would help at a lot, particularly when working on code interacting with the system, is if VS could attach to a remote FSI instance. This running FSI could have it's STDIN/OUT attached to a network socket as an example. Optionally, a local command/script could be specified that would ensure the remote FSI instance is started/restarted/stopped as required.

        • Remove F# .fsproj build warnings through updating schems.microsoft.com/developer/msbuild/2003

          there are some F# .fsproj xml tags that VS incorrectly reports as being invalid. Please update your schemas, or give the community the means to do so.

          This creates unnecessary noise for developers.

          A few tags for example:
          <TargetFSharpCoreVersion>4.3.0.0</TargetFSharpCoreVersion>
          <Tailcalls>false</Tailcalls>
          <MinimumVisualStudioVersion Condition="'$(MinimumVisualStudioVersion)' == ''">11</MinimumVisualStudioVersion>
          <FSharpTargetsPath>$(MSBuildExtensionsPath32)\Microsoft\VisualStudio\v$(VisualStudioVersion)\FSharp\Microsoft.FSharp.Targets</FSharpTargetsPath>

          NOTE: --- this last tag is user generated, so VS is correct in recognising this as a possible error. However, if the programmer has made this choice or confirms it as being correct, VS should suppress the warning.
          <FsSrGen Include="FSComp.txt" />

          Unnecessary noise decreases the utility of the build warning system to the developer.

          In…

          • Syntax coloring for F# ASCII char literals

            The Visual Studio IDE correctly colors ASCII (byte) literals i.e.

            "Hello World"B

            but not ASCII (byte) characters, i.e.

            'H'B
