    • Visual Studio "15" Msbuild toolset issue

      Hi

      I have installed VS 15 using the light installer on my existing machine with Vs 2015. I have opened a solution created with VS 2015 and I get this at buildtime:

      >Project file contains ToolsVersion="14.0". This toolset may be unknown or missing, in which case you may be able to resolve this by installing the appropriate version of MSBuild, or the build may have been forced to a particular ToolsVersion for policy reasons. Treating the project as if it had ToolsVersion="15.0".

      Msbuild 14 is present on my but Vs 15 does not seem to detect it. How can I…

      • Stop resetting "Find and Replace -- Find Options" everytime it is shown

        Everytime I use Ctrl+Shift+F to find all instances in solution or whatever, it resets all options under "Find Options" in this window.

        This is NOT how it used to behave as late as VS2012 and it is particularly frustrating in terms of productivity inefficiency. I would like it to always save the last settings used when opening Find and Replace instead of always resetting everything.

        If this is indeed an option, I would love to be enlightened as to where it is, because I've searched long and hard and come up with nothing.

        Thanks

        • Its Time Visual Studio can use .net framework on other platforms,

          Simple Down load VS from the different OS app stores at the Microsoft sale Price and start developing .net applications on the host OS.For iOX Microsoft can push some of its Apple shares to make allow it to be used as a development platform. All other OS's should be easy. Consider the same issues you had getting Microsoft Office on all platforms

            With each breakpoint, I should be able to maintain some notes...

            frequently, I need to save some pointers or values.
            For lazy people entire state of Auto/Local window should be saved.
            These windows could have icons to save the current states.
            State of the Auto/Local-window, I mean the variables and their values.

            These notes should be arranged by the visits..
            Anytime during the debug i should be able to access the notes via
            the breakpoints hierarchy.
            The Notes can themselves be arranged by debug-sessions.

            I, this will be great help to all developers..
            Thanks,
            Jyoti Swarup

              • More convenient navigation using CodeMap

                I try CodeMap a few times and I find it really useful. However, the interaction is mouse-intensive and I have to switch between mouse and keyboard frequently when using it to navigate code.

                I hope I can use keyboard to complete important interactions in CodeMap. Here are some ideas:
                (1) Users can jump to another function only by pressing Ctrl+Up/Down/Left/Right key without any mouse interaction, when writinig code in the editor window.
                (2) Using key shour-cut to find current function's callers/callees.
                (3) Save parts of a map and load them into viewport when required

                Actually, I implement my ideas into…

                • continuous forms OR continuous sub forms

                  as MS Access developer , i am developing applications on MS Access , i used to deal with subforms, continuous and continuous subforms.
                  so in the great MS Visual Studio; this feature not exist !
                  we need this feature in VS or any other development program (not MS Access) has this features . i prefer this on VS .
                  i know there (DataRepeater) or (GridView) are similar but we need something integrated or built-in controls easier to deal with .

                      Is there a way to filter the builds (based on the defined “Build Tags” created in Build Definition), while creating a new Release in a Release Definition?

                      Between 2 Release Definitions, that deploy the same Build Artifacts, how to achieve full automated deployment for selecting a particular approved build (might not be the latest build always)?

                      • Smart auto-type

                        Do not cast to int as default. Check, if value smaller than int, then cast to appropriate type, like short or char, etc.

                        As example, if I wrote...
                        auto _value = 0xFF;
                        ... I don't need to cast to int, because the value in BYTE range, so 0xFF should be "(BYTE)0xFF", not "(int)0xFF".

                        P.S. Sorry for my bad English.

                          For Visual Studio 15 the install size displayed does not update immediately. It would be helpful if you added a label displaying "Computing Size..." or something similar.

                            It will be better if you provide auto hide solution explorer and properties when resizing visual studio using keyboard shortcuts (windows + <left or right arrow>) by default.

                            • Generate constructor in classes that "must declare a Sub New"

                              Often when inheriting from a class without a parameterless constructor, one must provide a constructor in the base class, and end up just proxying the constructor to the parent class. This is very procedural and should be generated like MustOverride members already are.

                              Example:
                              Public Class Parent
                              Public Sub New(X As Integer) ...
                              End Sub

                              Public Class Child
                              Inherits Parent
                              Public Sub New(X As Integer) ' \
                              MyBase.New(X) ' |-- Should be autogenerated
                              End Sub ' /
                              End Class

                                • break form

                                  Every time I hit the break button I get the anoying message that my appliation is in "break mode". If I don't want this I can just press F5 and get going again. WHY do I need to be reminded that I clicked a button??? Do you like it when you would get a message like this on every button you clicked???

                                  WHY do I use this: so I can edit some code or find WHAT is going on when an application takes a long time to perform an action. I just want to stop where the program is at…

                                  • codemap external types

                                    I would love to be able to look at "Derived Types" of an external type. Currently it says "no items found". Specifically, my app depends on Windows.UI.Xaml.Controls.Maps.MapElement, and I want to see all the derived types of MapElement. Should be in the same external assembly that it has already cracked...

                                    • support front end debug on VS

                                      Visual Studio should support front-end debug.
                                      Currently all the js codes are combined into one file "eval". It is extremely difficult to debug js code there.

                                      • Form designer: meaningful error message when failed due to x64

                                        Regarding to the feedback at https://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/feedback/details/646328

                                        I understand this is by design. But the error message that is displayed is misleading: "Could not find type ***. Please make sure that the assembly that contains this type is referenced..."

                                        It would be nice if Visual Studio gave a more helpful error message, like "Cannot open 64-bit controls in design mode. Please rebuild for the AnyCPU or x86 platforms, and try again."

                                        • Show a count of each tag in the tasklist

                                          In the error list I can see how many errors and warnings I have.
                                          In the task list I would like to see how many TODO:, FIX: I have. A Count of the number of occurances of each token that is visible in the tasklist, when a filter is applied that should be accounted for.

                                          If I filter for one Project in my solution I want to see how many TODOs I have and how Many FIX and so on.
