        • Include pre- and post deploymentscripts of referenced databases during deployment

          I would like to have the option that pre- and postdeployment scripts of referenced databases are also executed during deployment of the referencing database.

          At our company are we using some general components in our applications. Some of these components also contain a specific database schema. These general database schemas are included in the database of the application. The database projects of these general components also contain pre- and postdeployment scripts. Certain database changes it is even essential to make use of pre- and postdeployment scripts.

          At this moment only the objects of the referenced database are created in the…

          • Support .scss-lint.yml for SASS linting

            It comes from scsslint: https://github.com/brigade/scss-lint

            This will offer a much better SASS linting.

            • Allow the Dim keyword to be optional.

              For example, instead of:

              Dim a As Integer
              Dim b As Double
              Dim c As CustomType

              allow this syntax:

              a As Integer
              b As Double
              c As CustomType

              VB code would be cleaner and less verbose. (Possibly the compiler/parser could use the As keyword to recognise that a variable is being declared?).

              • Provide an option in the HTML editor to disable AngularJS intellisense

                This is rather annoying for people who have no interest whatsoever in AngularJS.

                  • Add an options to controls reference detection and counting for nameof expression

                    C#6 and VB14 adds new "nameof" operator to add strong name reference in coding. However, nameof expression only generates a const string, and the code item (class, member, etc) is not actually used. Could you please consider to provide a manner to control the code analysis for nameof reference?

                    • Show installed transitive dependencies in the NuGet Package Manager UI in Visual Studio.

                      When using the new transitive dependency feature of NuGet 3.0 it would be nice to see the full list of installed packages in the Package Manager UI in Visual Studio. Currently only the the top level NuGet package that was specified in the project.json is listed as installed but other dependencies you expect to see are not listed.

                      • Git: Allow selection of 3rd party git diff and merge tools

                        The integrated diff view in VS2015 is fast and helpful in many situations but still limited in its options and workflow.

                        At our company we use BeyondCompare as the primary diff tool.
                        We would like to select this tool as preffered diff and merge editor for git.

                        Other git clients like SourceTree allow to configure these tools freely (by adding the configuration to .git/config).

                        I'd love to see that in VS2015 as well.

                        • Better VCS Handling

                          Visual Studio has a one version control rule in which you can only setup VS to handle one, not more than one.

                          Sometimes you have a project that uses GIT, and one that uses Hg and another that uses SVN and it'd be nice if the IDE could adapt to that possible adjustment.

                          a good example of this would be the IDEs made by JetBrain, they're able to detect which VCS is being used and adapt to it.

                          • Allow TestsCases to have multible steps with same parametr name

                            We are using "Test Complete" for test automation and managed to connect shared steps to their corresponding test automation routine of "Test Complete". Now we are facing the problem that we have to call some of this routines a couple of times within the same test case (e.g. checking the content of a message box or the content of a database entry). Therefore the same shared step (with its defined parameters) has to be used. Now MTM only allow us to set the value of the parameter once.
                            Example:
                            Import File @FileName
                            Check state @Status
                            Perform Action @Action
                            Check state…

                            • Clear up font rendering on SSIS Package Designer

                              When zooming in or out on the SSIS Package Designer, the font rendering is less than optimal. The particular case I am seeing it in is the Sequence Container, though I haven't dug into others too deeply. In the attached file, notice that the header of the Sequence Container renders well, while the titles of the Execute SQL Statements are blurry.

                                • Kwestia Konwersji i Zapisu Ikon w Framework

                                  Moim zdaniem jest słaba obsługa ikon w vb.net , przydała by się funkcja do konwersji np. png czy bmp do ico wbudowana we framework, a także mogło by być lepiej obsłużony zapis ikon, w taki sposób aby można było zapisać je grupami.
                                  Pozdrawiam Serdecznie. Krzysztof Kozłowski.

                                    • Why is it so difficult to Update to Visual Studio 2015 Update 2 or 3?

                                      Every time I try to update to the new update 2/3 of Visual Studio 2015, the program stops working with no explaination on how to fix the issue. I also need the Microsoft SQL Server Update for database because I need "SQL Server Data Tools' and cannot currently set a local instance of my database.

                                      Any help would be greatly appreciated. Spent a few hours trying to figure this out...

                                      Thanks!

                                      • Update the Visual Studio 2015 licensing whitepaper to allow use of SQL Server 2016 with TFS 2015 update 3

                                        The Visual Studio 2015 licensing whitepaper states that a licence for SQL Server 2014 Standard Edition is included in a TFS 2015 server licence. With the release of TFS 2015 Update 3, TFS is now compatible with SQL Server 2016.

                                        Do you intend to upgrade the TFS licence to allow the use of SQL Server 2016? If so, can you update the white paper?

                                        • Hide [obsolete] items in intellisense

                                          Or provide an option to cross them out. But if you do, also include an option to hide them.

                                          I work with Unity frequently. Unity has A LOT of obsolete values in their core classes, and it makes intellisense a bit of a pain to use. It would be nice to be able to filter out what appears there so I can easily find what I'm looking for.
