  1. Leading Suggestions to Create Transferring Uncomplicated

    Switching a great workplace or market to some new area could be a harrowing task; in fact it could change into a total headache if you don't pick the best packers as well as movers.

    Business re-location usually comes with the fat regarding transporting explosives, fumes, dangerous substances in addition to sensitive material. Most of these supplies have to have treatment as well as dealing with by simply prepared authorities. For that reason, to make sure that the actual new house purchase method goes thru efficiently, it's a wise decision to maintain these factors in mind:

    • kproj/xproj should not be associated with ASP.Net it makes sense for all other application types too.

      As the title states, don't make xproj/kproj exclusive to sp.net projects. The general idea behind this project also applies to desktop (and all other project types) too. Even better just use project.json without any *.*proj file as another suggestion already states.
      Just allow for a target to build into binaries directly.

      • Add F7 Support for resx files to navigate to feature

        Navigate to Feature - [ctrl]-[,] is a very useful tool to quickly move through huge solutions.
        I suggest adding F7 as a possible hotkey to the Navigate box thus opening a text editor instead of a default editor (and shift-f7 for e.g. the designer)

        my usecase is editing ressource files: often I want to find one file and instead of opening the file (e.g. a *.resx ressource file) with the default editor (in this case a grid editor) I would like to hit F7 to open the file with the common editor (thus opening an xml editor).

        Sadly, F7 just…

        • Combine all workflow activities into a universal workflow library without the need for Workflow Manager

          Add the Workflow activities that are under Microsoft.Activities and its child namespaces (Microsoft.Activities.Expressions, Microsoft.Activities.Hosting, Microsoft.Activities.Messaging, Microsoft.Activities.Client, Microsoft.Activities.Client.Security) into the collection of activities that are available under the WF designer toolbox in VS2015 and allow them to work without the need to use Workflow Manager

          • Extend the task list with filters for @persons and #things

            in shared code bases, handling tasks that don't require issue tracking (or when there is no issue tracking) usually is managed with TODO comments and the task list window.

            It would be great to enable TODO comments to be taggable as to Persons or issue Things.
            I suggest using the twitter schema of prefixing Persons with an @ at sign and Things with a # hash sign.

            // TODO @Alex #CleanUp
            I would like the Task List to have two additional columns, Persons and Things) where for each task, all occuring @Persons and #Things are written.

            of course, those columns…

              • Add the ability to "move" NavigateTo results into a ToolWindow with a list of results

                Often when searching via NavigateTo (Ctrl+,) I find myself wanting to click a button (or something) to "save" off the results into a new ToolWindow with a clickable list of results.

                Similar to the CodeLen option when searching for references.

                • Switch ranking of matches when searching with "CamelHumps" in NavigateTo

                  When using "CamelHumps" e.g. searching for FooBarBaz class by entering FBB in the NavigateTo (Ctrl+,) box, the matches for the camel humps are ranked lower than character matches (e.g. FbbClass). Since the camel hump style search only works if you enter in CAPS, it certainly seems like any camel hump matches should be ranked first in the results.

                  For the longest time, I didn't even realize camel hump searching even work in VS (I actually started writing an extension to add it) because of the poor ranking in the results.

                    • Execution times when debugging JavaScript

                      When debugging in C# the execution times between lines are shown. It would be of great value to have these metrics shown when stepping through JavaScript too. It would make it very easy to spot expensive DOM calls for example.

                      • Automatic fluent API for void methods

                        Having fluent APIs is sometimes the most obvious way to go. To make existing non-fluent APIs capable of doing so, I propose extending all methods with void signatures to be capable of returning the instance or static instance it was called on.

                        In the example below the $. proposed operator would allow the instance backing the method that has a void return type to be exposed.

                        Example:
                        -------------------------
                        public class Doer
                        {
                        public void DeleteSomething(Something something) { ... }

                        public void AddSomething(Something something) { ... }

                        public Something GetSomething() { ... }
                        }

                        ...
                        var doer = new DoerClass();
                        var…

                        • Automatically detect style used in source file (indentation, spaces, newlines, etc.) in VS editor

                          Make Visual Studio editor automatically detect style used in a source code file and use it for newly added code to that particular source file. This should work on a per file basis as different developers have different style preferences.

                            See here
                            http://clang.llvm.org/extra/index.html

                            It is a set of nice tools based on CLang which can modernize legacy code to C++11, lint your code, reformat code, etc
                            It is command line based but it is inconvenient to use when working with solutions. It will be lovely to have it in solution context menu.

                              • .NET Native for Android and iOS

                                Visual Studio already has support for C++ Android apps, and it would be great if those apps could use C# and .NET Core, which - with the use of .NET Native - would compile into native code that runs on Android. A similar solution for iOS would also be a great idea, though I realise this might be a more difficult thing to implement.

                                • Allow for overriding a stored procedure or function in a referenced sql project

                                  If you have a SQL proj that references a dacpac, that dacpac may have stored procs or other objects that are designed to be overridden or extended by later projects.

                                  Currently if you try to create a procedure with the same name, you get SQL71508 errors ("the model already has an element with the same name").

                                  The behavior I am looking for is similar to virtual/override in .NET.

                                  Being able to suppress this error and still generate the relevant ALTER would also work.

                                    • Allow local NuGet package sources to be secured using Azure Active Directory

                                      A local/private Nuget Package server can be hosted on Azure as a web app. However, I think .... if the web app is (public &) secured with Azure Active Directory, the developer is no longer able to connect to the packages from Visual Studio 2015.

                                      Please could you allow Visual Studio to connect to NuGet packages protected by Azure Active Directory authentication.

                                      • Allow proper versioning with SQL Server Database Projects

                                        There needs to be a new type of Database Project - something like "versioned database".

                                        What I want is for the project to create a "Updates" directory when the project is created. Whenever I make changes, the "Publish" button should not appear; just the "Generate script" button. When a script of those changes is generated, the user can name it and the SQL script is then saved into a new file in the "Updates" directory. There would then be an option to "Publish updates". An "Updates" table would also be created in the database, and only updates that haven't been…

                                        • Fix VS2015 IDE bug where go-to-definition doesn't work when using tabs instead of spaces

                                          After upgrading to VS2015 if your IDE settings for languages are to use tabs for indenting instead of spaces then using the F12/go-to-definition feature does not work at all.

                                          This is unacceptable and needs to be fixed ASAP.

                                          You can workaround it by switching the setting to spaces but naturally I use and prefer tabs and this is a regression hence the urgency of the fix.
