          • Keep the tree structure as it was, after refreshing Work Items under TFS

            While working under Team Explorer > Work Items; if you add a Work Item while browsing the results of a query (where "title"s appear as a tree structure depending on their links) and refresh the results afterwards, the current view of tree structure is reset. It happens even if you don't update anything related to Work Items. It would be better if the tree structure remained as it was, only renewed to contain the changes (if any).

              I cannot find this command in Options -> Environment -> Keyboard anymore. Has it been removed? If so, it's probably one of the worst decisions you've made for this product.

              • A Sprint Kanban Board instead of TaskBoard (ScrumBan)

                Support for ScrumBan

                It would be nice to be able to add columns and swimlanes to the taskboard. If a Kanban View could be used at a sprint level that would allow teams to have different columns, limits, and lanes. It would give teams even more flexibility.

                perhaps there could be the option to remove tasks and just use PBIs in a sprint?

                • Peek Definition Debugger Support

                  It would be very happy to see Debugger support Peek Definition.
                  Let's say we call some method of some class. And Peek Definition would provide Step Into the code of that method right from the current line, expanding Peek Definition View and highlighting debugging line in the same place instead of redirection to a newly opened source code file

                  Thanks

                  • Visual Should should include UWP UI samples by default

                    On WP 7, 8.0, 8.1, Windows 8.x, we had some default samples like grid, hub, pivots, etc. On Windows 10 we should have some default samples like hamburger menu/splitview and other default guidelines UI's. Why? We should have a consistent UI between 3rd party apps... Right now, every developer need to implement their own way of hamburger menu. If you guys shipped with a sample, or better, just like Toolbar Ink on Anniversary Update, would be awesome!

                    • Support mode to have XAML tags with N or less attributes formatted on a single line.

                      There is the option to have XAML tag attributes formatted on individual lines, however when there are only a couple of attributes it looks better to format as a single line, such as in the case of Style Setters:

                      <Setter Property="..." Value="..." />

                      Instead of

                      <Setter Property="..."
                      Value="..." />

                      or

                      <Setter
                      Property= "..."
                      Value ="..." />

                      I find there are a lot of times where there are only two attributes in a XAML tag but I usually prefer to have them in a single line.

                      However I always prefer to have a large list of attributes with each placed on…

                      • String comparison operator that ignores case

                        In C#, the == comparison operator is always case-sensitive when comparing string values, and there does not appear to be an alternate operator that can ignore case. Instead, you have to do something like this, which seems quite ugly and unnecessary for such a common type of string comparison:

                        string.Equals(string1, string2, StringComparison.OrdinalIgnoreCase)

                        By comparison, in PowerShell, the standard -eq operator ignores case when comparing string values, and there is an additional -ceq operator that allows you to force case sensitivity when comparing strings.

                        Given that the need for two different string comparison operators was already identified and addressed in PowerShell,…

                        • Updater

                          the installer/updater should determine whether VMware is installled and then skip the installation of HyperV, simply because they cannot coexist. it just keeps installing it, while I'm forced to keep uninstalling it - in order to keep the system operational. picking up ANDROID_HOME might also be useful - I mean, reporting SDK/NDK was found and skipping that install.

                            • Allow StakeHolders to create PBIs under a feature

                              Currently when a StakeHolder is adding a new PBI in the backlog, it is not associated with any feature regardless of the selected feature un the tree. Also, since StakeHolders cannot move PBIs under a feature by drag/droping them, it becomes very tedious for them to associate PBIs to a feature (they have to eidt links manually). This is generating a lot of friction in the adoption of TFS tools. It would be nice if they could make the association easily.

                              • When using Live Visual Tree with Enable Selection in the running app, implement a shortcut key to temporarily disable selection.

                                The Live Visual Tree is a great tool to help debug WPF presentations, however I find I have to constantly go back to Visual Studio to turn off and back on the Enable Selection option to interact with the UI in order to show another view or perform an action.

                                While the ability to have a toolbar appear in the app window you are inspecting was added for VS 2015 Update 2, it would be great if there was a way set a mode where the right mouse button acts like a normal left mouse button click to interact with…

                                  When giving code examples, it may be helpful to color code the "using <name>" namespace ref. for each specific namespace method as it is used in the code. This can help with forming a quick association to which namespace is being used as a reader is skimming the code.

                                  A method similar to the above example is worth exploring also. :-)

                                  • Not have a hard stop with Visual Studio when the subscription expires.

                                    If you can notify me during a compile that my license expired and stop compiling, you can certainly put out a compiler warning(once per project) that the license will expire in less than a week and give me time to repurchase the action pack subscription. It can take up to 3 days to get going again.

                                      I think there should be a shortcut to view the start page.

                                      • Use full namespace when adding a using namespace reference

                                        When adding a using namespace statement to a C# file from the suggested actions dropdown, it would be nice to have an option that kept the old VS behavior where it would always use the full namespace name instead of a partial namespace.

                                        • Let me keep my project open when I look at work items in team explorer

                                          Whenever I want to look at my work items I need to reconnect, which closes my open project. Then when I open a project it closes my query results. Why can't I just see my query results window without having to close my project?
