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.

    One suggestion - because I am taking on A LOT of lines of code in my MainWindow.xaml.vb in individual Sub(s) - it would be even more beautiful if you could implement collapse/expand nodes in Sub structures like "Select Case" (a node on each Case with a parent node on the main Select) and "If...Then...ElseIf...Else" (a node on each ElseIf, the Else, and a parent node on the main If)

    Overall...Extraordinary...this is just an incredible product.

    • current edits marked off on scroll bar should include all changes up to my last pushed commit to repo and not just my current local commits

      When I work I usually like seeing all my changes since last check in (with TFS, useful for checking my own changes before attempting putting up a CR) BUT, when I now commit locally in git, my marks are gone! I can no longer see my "latest changes since I pushed to the repo" (they are commited already to my local repository!). Can there be a setting that denotes marking off the entire local commit branch history on the scroll bar that hasn't been pushed to repo? This is the more important information for me at least...

          • Provide a stand-alone 2015 version of Team Explorer as was done for previous versions.

            We have TFS users that used the stand-alone Team Explorer in previous versions of TFS along with a user CAL to access basic level features. We have been informed by our MS vendor that using VS Community or Express would be non-conforming. We need the same functionality we had in TFS2013.

            • Allow Grid child elements to be defined within ColumnDefintion or RowDefinition

              I use the Grid for most of the XAML I write. Right now it becomes difficult to move controls within a Grid around:

              <Grid>
              <Grid.RowDefinitions>
              <RowDefinition Height="Auto" >
              <TextBlock Grid.Column="0" Text="ABD" />
              <TextBox Grid.Column="1" Text="ABD" />
              </RowDefinition>
              <RowDefinition Height="*" />
              </Grid.RowDefinitions>
              <Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
              <ColumnDefinition Width="*" />
              <ColumnDefinition Width="Auto" />
              </Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
              <Grid>

              Thus anything within a ColumnDefinition or RowDefinition Content would automatically be included in that definition.

              • Their is no option to inactive ResolutionType and FailureType in MTM.

                Like we have environment active/inactive similarly we need to have flag for FailureType and Resolution Type. The drop down should contain the values only active ones. This will help the user not to worry about the values which are associated to the test results during deletion. In my project we have millions of test results where it is impossible to deassociate the existing value.

                Please refer to this thread.

                  • unordered_map

                    If we want to use an custum class as key When using unordered_map or unordered_set, We must define an hash function for typedefine.
                    Can we use over override size_t (*) (const T&) in custum class without outside function define

                      • Search within a namespace in the "Object Browser"

                        I rarely use the Object Browser, its slow and doesn't work well for me.

                        Normally, I just want to see what types are around in my own codebase, i.e. my solution and all references to *my* libraries.

                        In short, I want to only look in types within MyCompany.* namespace.

                        In general, the whole tool needs a reboot for 2017.

                        • shared projects for asp.net mvc

                          ASP.Net / MVC

                          I very much like the idea of the 'Shared Project' project template.

                          It would be perfect for our team, for this way our shared views, base classes, javascript libraries, images, etc. could be stored and maintained in common Shared Projects.

                          However, in web solutions, this template is not available. Technically I can understand the problems for implementing, but it would be so nice have this feature.

                          What I think is the main problem:
                          You don't want to copy the files in the Shared Project into the web project's file stucture. That would render the whole concept useless.…

                                • Seperate VS High contrast setting from being mandatorily applied from Desktop

                                  Seperate VS High contrast setting from being mandatorily applied from Desktop. I find it a bit strange that this happens. I want to be able to change the settings in vs independently (color theme and any others I am not aware of) from my desktop. I have no idea why when high contrast theme setting is applied to my desktop that vs gets stuck in high contrast, when I switch my desktop to another theme vs is fine, i can then change it to any theme I want.

                                    When I get a Build Successful message, rather than just displaying it on the status bar on the bottom left, could you flash it on huge red letters, play a fanfare and send round the good time girls and a few beers?

                                    • How about using PERSONAL Computers to keep your IP PERSONAL?

                                      I've got a PC that could handle, without a clou, er, mainframe, ALL the software needed for this project. WHY should WE be forced to hand our ideas over to MS, when just keeping the system unplugged from the 'net is usually sufficient to protect us from any non-burglary breakin. Look at the list of current MS security "fixes" including those applicable for Win-NT through Win 10! Folks, this is one reason PCs were INVENTED. At worse (as it was running Conway Life programs on 1/12th of a PDP-8/I, at worse, this might mean time for a Coke between generations)…

                                      • Allow Test Explorer To export test results

                                        When running tests in Test Explorer, there doesn't appear to be a way to export these results. This would be useful in order to share failed test results with fellow team members. Ability to export to trx would be wonderful. I know this can be accomplished via commandline, but running from commandline is a rather clunky solution, especially if you want to re-run failed test.

                                        • marketplace: Provide analytics

                                          In the Visual Studio Marketplace, provide usable analytics that providers may exploit, similar to NPM or github: visits and downloads per week or month, etc.
