  1. Don't use Microsoft Products!!!!!!!!!!

    how can you have a compiler error "boolean variable is unsued" - when it obviously is in the code. When what the F***king error actually means is that the variable is not used in a comparison??? Who the **** in your organisation thought this would be a good idea????
    Once again, this error has wasted my life!!! - when I would like to be at home with my family!!!!!

      • ctrl-tab in visual studio to show the full file name

        When you ctrl tab to switch between files in visual studio, the file name is cut off, its enourmously painful just trying to work out which file you need as you often have fines that start with the same text..

        • MVC designer

          I love asp.net web form because codeless features. We can create a page by drag-and-droping controls into a page, configure datasource using smart task wizard, query builder etc. I'm not a typists. So, i don't like to type similar code everyday.
          Can you make MVC designer, so we can create MVC app as easy as creating web form app? codeless?
          I imagine that creating basic class is look like designing a table. Can we create a class without typing any codes?
          I hope in the future, VS can make MVC as easy as web form.
          Thanks

          • Visual Studio for iPad

            A port of the Visual Stuid code editor to iPad would be a huge help. I am an ASP.NET web developer. Being able to quickly pull my latest code, tweak it (with all the intellisense goodness of Visual Studio), and push to my build server would be a massive boost for my mobile productivity!

            • suggest adding in the window "Properties" a tab that lists the methods of the object

              Adding in the window "Properties" a tab that lists the methods of the object, in addition to the existing property and events tabs.

              Methods tab can have the possibility of a simplified " Description" and a hyperlink to the "HELP " for a more detailed explanation.

              It also can tabs on current properties and events, add hyperlinks to descriptions listed at the bottom of the window

                  I noticed that in the Watch window or just by mouse hover on a IEnumerable<IEnumerable<T>> function the "Result view" works only for 1th level of enumeration. Could possible and useful to go nested result view.

                  • Add support for vNext builds (viewing, selecting gated, kicking off) in Visual Studio 2013

                    Currently any builds created using the vNext system aren't visible from VS 2013! Even when devs check-in their code and gated build is enabled they don't see the vNext gated build as an option.

                    • Add support for TLS 1.2 in Visual Studio 2015 Enterprise Web Performance Tester

                      Our security policies are mandating use of TLS 1.2. When attempting to script and playback a web performance test I received an SSL error. Only by adding a coded plug-in supplied by MSDN support was able to get it to work. Going forward support for TLS 1.2 should be included "out of the box"

                      • Visual Studio to use correct formatting for auto created source files

                        When Visual Studio creates any source files as part of a project it should reformat them based on the Visual Studio formatting settings.
                        Currently you have to manually do this for all the files created as part of various VS actions.

                          It would be nice to have the ability to group unit tests by 2 levels. Such as project then class.

                            • keep a history of pinned tabs

                              When I'm working on a part of a project, I usually have some tabs pinned that I regularly have to change. But sometimes, something comes up and I have to work on another part for a while. So those pinned tabs are not needed at the moment and are in the way when I'm working on the other part. But when that finishes and I'm going back to work on the first part. So I want the pinned tabs back I was using.
                              I would be handy if you can keep a history of pinned tabs or are able to…

                              • Confirmation for "Replace All" when Current Project or Entire Solution are selected

                                An option to request confirmation for the "Replace All" function when Current Project or Entire Solution are selected would prevent accidentally performing a Replace All on a huge number of files instead of just the one you meant to. The confirmation could be enabled/disabled in the options.

                                • Find and Replace automatically set context to Selection

                                  Whenever I select a block of text and click CTRL+H to perform Find and Replace I would like that Find and Replace dialog context is automatically set to 'Selection'.
                                  This used to work like that in previous version of VS and I find it odd that it has been changed.

                                        • Change the dropdown to show properties and methods to navigate to

                                          When opening a file, or when scrolled to the top, the dropdown on the right (tooltip: Use the dropdown to navigate to other items in the file) is blank. You have to put the cursor within a class before it populates. Would be nice if it just populated initially.
