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".

  1. Update VSAE for Visual Studio 2015

    Visual Studio Authoring Extensions are the best way to write SCOM management packs. Currently this isn't available for VS2015. Please can you sort this as its the last thing stopping me updating to VS2015.

    • Extend support for JSDoc.

      The current implementation supports the basics of JSDoc. It would be great to be able to have the full JSDoc specification available.

      For example this piece from the JSDoc documentation:
      /**
      * This callback type is called `requestCallback` and is displayed as a global symbol.
      *
      * @callback requestCallback
      * @param {number} responseCode
      * @param {string} responseMessage
      */

      /**
      * Does something asynchronously and executes the callback on completion.
      * @param {requestCallback} cb - The callback that handles the response.
      */
      function doSomethingAsynchronously(cb) {
      // code
      };

      It would be great to have the intellisense show the parameters of the…

      • Remove or enable an option to disable "Match end-tag" in the HTML Editor

        There has got to be an option to turn off / disable the "Match end-tag" feature found here:

        http://webtooling.visualstudio.com/languages/html/#match-end-tag

        If there is an unmatched tag on a page and I need to change the start tag, the system finds the next end tag on the page and automatically changes it even if there isn't a corresponding end tag. This means that while I'm actively editing / adding new code to a file, the IDE starts changing other code unrelated to my changes because it thinks things are related even though they're not.

        I added a lengthy explanation as angry_code on…

        • Highlight active document in Solution Explorer with unique colors

          Highlight active documents in Solution Explorer with unique colors. It can be confusing which document you are editing if you navigate using the tabs. I have multiple files called "Index.cshtml".

          • Schema Compare - Allow to configure schemas to ignore/include.

            In the current database I work we have a lot of schemas that I will not use. It will be good if there were a feature that allow us to include/exclude schemas from the comparison. That will help to speed up the comparison and also to focus and the objects I care.

            This feature will be appreciated.

                • Have error messages display inline along the right side of the line it affects in the source window

                  When there is a location with an error in the error window rather than just putting a red squiggle under it which I then have to have to hover over the cursor with to get the details, support having the description of the squiggle inline in the code editor somewhere in the whitespace around the code problem.

                        it would be neat to be able to define a variable in the while expression.

                        example:

                        • IntelliSense & Property Window support for x:Uid editing

                          It would be nice if the XAML editor would support IntelliSense for x:Uid. In the attached example a dropdown with the values buttonLogin, inputLogin and inputPassword would be shown.

                          Editing of the x:Uid in the property window would also be nice. It should also show a drop down list.

                            • Allow Adding Interfaces To Existing Types At Compile Time

                              This will obviate my need to use the Adapter pattern on almost every .NET type I come across which is not sealed.

                              This would just be for making explicit what properties are already implemented so that I can attach extension methods to said interfaces.

                              Currently there exist .NET types which implement properties with the identical names and identical types, but instead of declaring such(i.e. IHasStringNameProperty), the library code requires the developer to derive types with the needed interfaces in order to keep his/her client code DRY.

                              But sometimes those types are sealed, so adapters won't work, or they are used…

                              • Create an option to always start the designer with 100% zoom

                                In addition to the suggested DPI Lock have an option to always start the designer in 100% zoom rather than resizing for available space. Zooming in or out results in blurry artwork (even vector graphics) making it difficult to see if items are properly aligned. This should not disable the option to zoom in or out but I usually prefer to see my GUI as it will eventually appear. The current default "zoom to available space" requires me adjust more often than not.

                                  • Add interfaces for all winforms controls

                                    Unit testing of view controllers is difficult because most WinForms controls don't have interfaces. You've got to manually wrap each control with a thin wrapper class that does expose an interface, but then that doesn't work well with the designer tools.

                                    A full IoC framework that worked well with the designer tools would be ideal.

                                      • Allow Resource File's values to open in their own tab

                                        I would like for Resources.resx File's values to open in their own tab or page in order to edit easier. Currently we have to copy the text into a text file change it then past it back in.

                                        • Allow to disable codelens 'show references'

                                          CodeLens -> 'Show References' checkbox is disabled. Allow uncheck/disable CodeLens show references feature. It disturbs the code line spacing.
