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.

  1. Support verification of Layering constraints on F# projects

    See: create layering model that includes a F# project, open "Layer Explorer", and notice that the F# project has "False" in the "Supports Validation" column. This makes it harder to use the Architecture tools, and means losing support when you add a F# project to an existing architecture.

    • Add fsi option to suppress loading of TypeProvider design-time assemblies

      When using fsi to execute script files, it doesn't make sense to force design-time assemblies to be present (i.e,, those referenced through TypeProviderAssemblyAttribute). I request that fsi either extend the
      "--exec" option so that it does not try to load these design assemblies, or to provide a new option that does this.

        • #use for fsi.exe sessions.

          Unless I am missing on something, right now if you #load "something.fsx" in a fsi.exe session, you cannot interactively use the functions in that script file (loaded, signatures displayed but not accessible, somehow).
          If, on the other hand I open a cmd.exe, then start "fsi.exe --use:something.fsx" I can use those types out of the box as if Ihad ALT-ENTERED it to f# interactive from within VS.

          So, adding a #use which creates the same behavior as "fsi.exe -- use:" seems to be a good idea to me.

          • Optimize the "Intellisense" in F#,At least not bad than python support

            Some examples:
            1、new line's first word can not list members automaticly,i need use ctrl+J,but c# or vb works fine,even python works better than F#(MS's natural son)
            2、 i define a new expression on the top,but intellisense can't auto list it,crtl+J again,even python can do it.

            Sad(ಥ _ ಥ)

            • f# syntax coloring improvement

              I find F# syntax coloring lacking with vs2013 default settings. It's mostly a few bits of blue and rest white text.

              ex. following lines are nearly all white text.

              let flattenRanges overallMin overallMax (comparer:System.Collections.Generic.IComparer<_>) ranges =
              let f = Expression.Lambda<Func<seq<OptionalValue<obj>>, IVector>>(body, par).Compile()

              member x.SelectOptional<'R>(f:System.Func<KeyValuePair<'K, OptionalValue<'V>>, OptionalValue<'R>>) =
              let newVector =
              index.Mappings |> Array.ofSeq |> Array.map (fun (KeyValue(key, addr)) ->
              f.Invoke(KeyValuePair(key, vector.GetValue(addr))))
              let newIndex = indexBuilder.Project(index)
              Series<'K, 'R>(newIndex, vectorBuilder.CreateMissing(newVector), vectorBuilder, indexBuilder)
