    • Provide Lightswitch Product Roadmap - recurring Town Hall

      It's been forever since the community has seen a product roadmap for LightSwitch. A year ago we saw something of a 'statement of direction', but that's not what I'm talking about. We need more information about what specific backlog items are being worked on and what to expect from both near and long term for releases.

      Since the HTML Client announcement, there has been a great deal of discomfort in the LS community about the lack of information coming from MSFT regarding advancement towards a LS client for LOB application development.

      • Allow nested methods inside any code block

        It would be nice if one could define methods inside other methods so that they are only accessible in the context of the parent method. In Pascal one could define them at the start of the parent method, before any other commands, but after local variables block, so they could also access the variables of their parent proc.

        A trick to implement them could be to make them anononymous methods and assign them to respective local delegates inside the parent method. That way one could also do arbitrary level of such nesting.

        Ideally they would also accept an optional inline…

                • Provide a way to compile C# classes down into TypeScript definitions (.d.ts) files

                  It's really extremely tedious and error prone to have to manually creating TypeScript equivalent classes for my C# models. Furthermore, once the C# models get updated, then the TypeScript classes are out of date. It would be awesome if this process could be automated so that my models are consistent across both client and server. There is a NuGet library out there called TypeLite which does this, although its far from perfect. It would be perfect if VS supported this natively with the full support of Visual Studio and the C#/TypeScript team!

                      • Show the time when the test fun completed in the Summary view in Test Explorer

                        The Summary view in Test Explorer does not refresh while tests are running. This makes it hard to determine if you are looking at the results of the last run or if the current run has finished and you're looking at those results. Adding a time stamp to the view would take away ambiguity.

                        • Enhance ?? operator with expressions ?exp?

                          Currently you can call
                          var item = itema ?? itemb;
                          if itema is null itemb will be returned.

                          We should expand this operator to allow an expression between the question marks to allow checking more values that just null like so.
                          var item = itema ?string.Empty? itemb;
                          MyEnum e = enuma ?MyEnum.None? enumb;
                          var str = str1 ?null || string.Empty? str2;
                          int I = int1 ?Int32.NaN? 0;

                          This would be helpful to reduce the repeatition
                          contrast the two statements

                          var breakType = break == BreakType.Lunch ? BreakType.None : break;
                          verses
                          var breakType = break ?BreakType.Lunch? BreakType.None;

                          • Make the WebBrowser Control work with Project Spartan

                            We've heard quite a bit of news lately about Project Spartan and how it's a replacement for Internet Explorer.

                            However, anyone who has used the WebBrowser control knows that it's just a wrapper around Internet Explorer, and it's quite painful to actually use in .net if you want to do anything more complicated than display a web page on a form, especially if you want to do so without a UI.

                            If Internet Explorer goes away, what happens to the WebBrowser Control? Now seems like a great time to really take a swing at improving the WebBrower control and web…

                                  • Allow multiple startup projects dialog options to be moved together

                                    Currently, the order of startup projects can only be moved one at a time.
                                    I suggest that the list allows selecting multiple items for moving at the same time. If there are many projects in the list, and the startup projects change often, it is not easy to find the most commonly used projects without moving them to the top.

                                    • Square root for BigInteger

                                      Good day to you!
                                      BigInteger was presented in .NET 4, but it still has no Square Root function.
                                      Every calculator has it, but BigInteger has not.
                                      Math.sqrt returns double, that has only 15 decimal digits precision.

                                      I can use algorithms issued in Wikipedia
                                      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Methods_of_computing_square_roots
                                      But these algorithms can be fasten using the inner implementation of BigInteger.
                                      So it would be better for Microsoft to include it in .NET.

                                      Also it would be great to return the remainder of Square Root.
                                      For example, SQRT(140)=11 and remainder 19.
                                      Digit-by-digit algorithm calculates remainder for free.

                                      By the way, please think about
                                      - function…

                                      • Web Studio 2016 - New program

                                        Hi,

                                        I think you can do a bit of HTML and CSS in Visual Studio, but why not creating a new program to make website?

                                        Notepad++ is the most used program, but the design is very old, so that's my idea :

                                        1. Lightweight
                                        2. Color to differenciate stuffs
                                        3. OneDrive support
                                        4. Edit in Real-Time with your friends via OneDrive.
                                        5. See change in real-times with Microsoft Edge.
                                        6. Automatic template when you choose HTML5 language. (just put <head>, <body>, etc.
                                        7. Be able to choose language and encoder.
                                        8. FREE!

                                        Thank you

                                        • Add support for release trains, multiple backlogs and multiple teams in Visual Studio Online to support SAFE

                                          When you have programs, projects, and many teams and stakeholders you need a way to manage and report backlogs all the way from Epics to stories. TFS has a way to support the Scalable Agile Framework but VSO does not seem to have the same level. Full support of working using SAFE would be very helpful
