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.

  1. Improve the Web Test Plugin, Request Plugin, Extraction Rule and Validation Rule

    I have Visual Studio Enterprise 2017 Version 15.6.6.
    Everyday I work with Web test Plugins, Request Plugins, Extraction Rules and Validation Rules. We have a lot of them and the dialog box that Visual Studio presents is not sufficient.

    What would be nice is:
    1.) A dialog box that is resizable to cater for the long descriptions
    2.) A Text Search that filters the matching items (Plugins, Extraction rules etc)
    3.) Multi select ability so that we don't have to open the dialog box multiple times within the same Web test or Load test

    • feedback process is created by babies

      Aparently your entire feedback process is design by a bunch of babies.

      1. when I want to give feedback on a post, I need to login (this makes sense so far)
      2. as soon as I get logged in (while I have verified NOT to be asked much, I still have to login 5 times THEN TO GET TO THE POINT THAT I NEED A PROFESSIONAL LICENSE TO GIVE FEEDBACK ON YOUR ****** WEBSITE

      3. the first thing I see on your "contact us" page is a textbox letting me think it is a feedback box, apparently it's a OBFUSCATED…

      • Add a data visualizer for JWTs

        Please add a visualizer to see a base64 encoded JWT string as a pretty printed JSON object. Would be very useful in debugging auth code.

        • installer rollback

          It would be very helpful if the VS installer had the ability to easily roll back to a prior version. Currently, there is no way to do this short of completely uninstalling VS, and reinstalling, which is extremely painful.

          This feature would be useful because Microsoft is releasing frequent updates to VS, many of which have show stopper bugs in them. A great example is 15.6.x, which has badly broken unit testing support.

          • Allow option for SSL when adding docker support to a project.

            Right now, when you add docker support to a core 2 mvc app, it defaults to port 80 when debugging. Might just be my code but attempts to make it run and debug on 443 have so far failed. It would be awesome to either detect the presence of RequireHttpsAttribute, look at the solution to see if the "Enable SSL" flag is checked on the debug tab or, at the very least, allow a checkbox that will gear the generated container files towards https instead of http.

                                  • 'Migrate packages.config to PackageReference' tool should support project.json

                                    I've just started testing your new tool for migrating packages.config to PackageReference in 15.7 Preview 3 and it's working nicely (thanks for it!), having found so far only a minor glitch in the dialog's title showing a '{0}' text.

                                    But I think it should also support project.json based projects: I've used this feature in many C# projects because it was simpler than using packages.config, despite knowing it was deprecated by PackageReference.

                                      • Do not create UTF16 source code files, it is not compatible with git!!

                                        Do not never ever have the IDE create UTF16 source code files, it is not compatible with GIT!

                                        It took me hours to figure out what happend and why my source code files got totally corrupted at some point!

                                        This seems to have started to happen with VS 15.4 for newly created C++ projects.

                                        Git is unable to deal with UTF16 as text.

                                        It will treat UTF16 files as binary.

                                        And git's auto-crlf-correction will corrupt the files if I tell it to treat .cpp as text via .gitattributes.

                                        MS Team decided that this is not a bug, but a feature:

                                        • Use the same language for "Track Active Item In Solution Explorer" and "Sync With Active Document"

                                          Sync with Active Document is something I use all the time, but I never knew Track Active Item in Solution Explorer existed. I think making the language more consistent would make it more discoverable.

                                          Although they describe very similar features (one is just an automatic version of the other), they use inconsistent language for the following
                                          Track <-> Sync
                                          Item <-> Document
