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.

    • Great news for WPF. Time for it to make a comeback! Microsoft is always trying to get the number of apps in the app store increased. Why not

      Great news for WPF. Time for it to make a comeback! Microsoft is always trying to get the number of apps in the app store increased. Why not help us WPF devs get our Desktop apps in the app store so that we can sell our Desktop apps through the store? Why not develop tools and API's that mean WPF apps can even run as WinRT apps? Dare I say it even run on iOs/Android in the Open Source .Net world. We like C#/Wpf/Visual Studio and we want to continue to work with these tools. Finally please also improve WPF…

              • Give us lowly humans ability to edit feedback posts for at least 5 minutes.

                I have a bad habit as a human being. I post first and then proof read my work. You could say I should do that first and I would agree but as humans we just don't do it. Please add ability to edit post for at least 5 minutes after posting. Or if your uncomfortable with that. Force the user to wait 5 minutes before showing it publicly. I.E., "Thank you for your feedback. Were baking your question to perfection. Your post will be visible to the world in 5 minutes. If you wish to make any modifications, do it…

                • Add cookie crumbs(or fully qualified type name) following the 'Locals' title at the top of the 'Locals' Window

                  Show the fully qualified type name after the word 'Locals' at the top of the 'Locals' window. For instance, I have the property "Container" highlighted in blue across my 'Locals' window. But which "Container" is it? Where does it hail from, so to speak? Well, I can spend lots of time tracing it back to it's origin. Or, you guys could show the fully qualified type name after the word 'Locals' at the top of the 'Locals' window. For example "Locals: this->ViewData->ModelMetadata->Container". Then I know exactly what I am looking at without having to waste time tracing it back myself.

                  • ASP.NET

                    Dear Microsoft, I am an developer and working on visual studio dot net. I have seen many time developers struggling the post back issue. Face problem while disabling complete page during postbacks. user has to go some work around if they want to disable complete page during post back. Ajax, javascript, jquery creates problems. My suggestion is in page lavel there must be property to set DisablePageDuringPostBack="True/False" help a lot to the developer.

                    • Use the project settings for the default language of resources

                      The context:
                      I'm working with a German version of VS2010 on a German OS. All my projects are meant for international use. So the default language is English. I mainly use Win32 API.

                      The problem:
                      When I use the resource editor, all resources are initially set to German. Even, when the project settings are set to "English (USA) (0x409) (/l 0x0409)". This is a nuisance, because you need to change the language manually for every resource.

                      Suggestion:
                      It would help a lot if you used the settings in the project to set the default language.

                          • Provide database connection wizard support for non-SQL Server Express instances

                            When creating a brand new ASP.NET Web Project, the template always requires a SQL Server Express instance. However, if you are using a non-SQL Server Express instance (such as SQL Server Developer Edition), you have to jump through a bunch of hoops to fix up any database connection strings to point to your default instance of SQL Server (even creating the databases manually or copying from a SQL Server Express instance).

                            Therefore, it would be better if Visual Studio simply provided a database connection wizard which allowed you to choose which instance of SQL Server you want to use for…

                                  In the Dpendency Graph currently changes to the code create a "the diagram may be based on an older version of the code", it would be nice if the diagram would automatically detect changes in the code and refresh or if there is a button to refresh the diagram. Currently I have a diagram I'm working through and as I clean up issues, I have to reorganize and recreate my notes and annotations.

                                  • Improve SQL Server Management Studio Diagrams

                                    Improve SQL Server Management Studio Database Diagrams to use modern disign (aperance) like VS Class Diagrams or EF Diagrams.

                                    It is unaceptable on these days that SQL Server Managemnt Studio renders that ugly and old diagrams with those old fat lines and borders. We would love to see SQL Management Studio Generating beautiful diagrams like VS Class Diagram or EF Diagrams.

                                    Also allow "Fit to print" options like CA Erwin does.

                                    • Add support for Saturating Integer Arithmatic

                                      Modern processors support saturating arithmetic. For example add two 8 bit integers and the result is larger than 127 returns a result of 127.

                                      • Database Schema View was a cool feature in VS 2010 database projects. This was dropped out from Visual Studio 2012 and Missing in VS 2013.

                                        Database Schema View was a cool feature in Visual Studio 2010 database projects. This was dropped out from Visual Studio 2012 and still missing in VS 2013. So many of us who started with database projects in VS 2010 are still looking for it!

                                        • Add a refresh button to the package manager

                                          If you make changes to pacakges in the console - you cannot refresh the package manager window without closing and opening it again.
