    • Give warning when string interpolation string isn't prefixed with $

      int myint = 123;
      Console.WriteLine("bla {myint} bla");

      Should give a compilation warning, or at least be detectable using the static code analysis tools included with VS.

      Because: Even though string interpolation is a relative new feature in C#, I've lost count of how many times I've seen the error above, when someone forgets to prefix a string with embedded variables with a $, though such typos are probably most common in code that's converted from older syntaxes as "bla {0} bla", myint.

      That the embedded variables isn't syntax highlighted is not enough.

      To prevent false positives, anything inside { }…

      • Inline class view

        Add an option to disable 'inline class view' in solution explorer.
        That is disable display of classes and methods inside a file in solution explorer.
        It is very confusing for file with dependencies (.resx, .designer.cs)
        the content of the file is accessible via the combobox on to of the edit window

            • git checkout -b <Newbranch> from ide

              I often want to continue work in an new branch, I'm not an expert on git, but the way I do it, is opening command window and git checkout -b <Newbranch>

              This would be nice to do directly in the IDE

              • Visual Studio Background Package Installation

                Well, i have Dell Precision M6500. It took about 24 hours already and still at approx. 80% by the time i am writing this message. Microsoft is a very gigantic organization that has a product which takes this long to install? I wasn't expecting this foolishness from such an advance organization with people of great potential. Installation of visual studio have become a headache itself for most of the people. This is why i am starting this discussion is to get rid of this issue which is degrading your product quality.

                • Ctrl+F : Option to move cursor only When [Find Next] is pressed

                  When I'm searching, it's for a specific variable name or phrase. I don't want the cursor to move from where I am unless I hit [Find Next] and there is a match. Why would I care if partial matches are found? I then have to navigate back to where I was for no reason. And while you're at it, please fix the adherence to copying/cutting lines without them being selected.

                  • Numbers in Watch and QuickWatch Window follows Windows Language Locale

                    It would be great if the floating point numbers in the Watch and QuickWatch window could follow the Windows language locale defined on the PC.
                    When e.g. copy and pasting into Excel all floating point numbers becomes invalid since my locale uses "," as decimal and not the US ".".

                    • Make __func__ return the same string as the __FUNCTION__ macro

                      Since VS 2015, the C99 variable __func__ is supported. However, __func__ only reports the bare function name whereas the __FUNCTION__ macro reports namespace and class names if applicable.
                      When switching from non-standard __FUNCTION__ to standard-C++ __func__, you will thus lose part of the information. This is very unfortunate when you have multiple functions with the same name but in different namespaces and/or classes.
                      Since the C++ standard allows for an implementation-defined string, I would like to suggest to reuse the functionality of __FUNCTION__ and make __func__ return the very same string.

                      • Improve R Support inside SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) (e.g. R intellisense)

                        In SSMS, I don't like having to put my R code inside quotations as strings. For now, they advise to use other tools for R then copy the R code as string inside a SQL script when loading R code to SQL Server.

                        Language intellisense within a different host language is not new.
                        VB.NET has xml literals. C# has string interpolations (they implemented it like a different language inside C#).
                        Hence, I believe this is really possible.

                        We don't want to duplicate code around. Please add this feature. :-)

                        • Save the current VS project/IDE state periodically.

                          As W10 arbitrarily resets the PC without warning the wrong (old) state is subsequently reloaded or lost. Old Breakpoints and relocated breakpoints get restored.
                          (maybe include the current state whenever "save all files" is clicked).

                              • Blank solution template should not force the creation of subfolder

                                When I create a new POC (for a customer) or a new app, after the git/hg init, I use to create two folders: "doc" and "src". Inside the "src" I use to create one or more solutions (the .sln file) and then more than one projects each one with its folder. To do that, currently, I have to create a blank solution, close the solution in VS (sometimes the VS instance itself), move the blank solution one directory up of the directory created by VS, delete the directory created by VS, re-open the blank solution an then start adding projects. …

                                  • Tab colors by file type

                                    Productivity Power Tools add in used to allow you to give tabs the ability to color tabs by file type using regular expressions (like yellow for JS, green for CS, blue for VB, etc). This functionality now seems impossible in VS 2017 and is a definite step backwards.

                                    • using generics types on unsafe code fixed

                                      we need use pointers and unsafe code, some methods can be generics but c# it is not compatible beacuse there are not have a where filter key to do these task...
                                      fixed(T* ptGenericTypeCompatible=tCompatibleArray)
                                      {

                                      }

                                      actually we have to write every case...Duplicating code...It is not practical

                                      • VS 2017, When adding references to projects in the solution for ASP.NET Core Web API, don't require to add the nested dependencies

                                        Hi Visual Studio Team,

                                        Just want to check on something for VS 2017, its about handling assembly references in ASP.NET Core. For example I have an ASP.NET Core Web API project that depends on another project say a class library called Service, this Service project in turn depends on a class library for example called Data. The intention is to reference only the service project in the ASP.NET Core Web API project so that anyone who works on that project will not be able to access implementation details that are on the Data project.

                                        Currently in Visual Studio 2017 RC…

                                        • Allow Visual Studio Developers/Users to Color Code the Window of the IDE you have open (The MDI Window)

                                          While I'm sure this is a duplicate idea, at companies where you have many versions of the same Solution stored (TFS, GIT, whereever), you will launch those solutions and have many open at once. To know which you are in isn't straight forward...gets confusing. You have to identify by solution file paths, etc...). Just adds more time. Have IDE color shade itself depending upon theme...or some other mechanism...to indicate to user "Hey, that's version 25 because i opened it and it was lighter blue today" ...along those lines please...thx...
