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. Add .ToTitleCase() to String Class

    Add the method .ToTitleCase() to the String Class (or a similar one, such as .ToProperCase() or somesuch). Currently this requires pulling thread information to get the local user's culture information, and multiple extra lines of code. It would be much simpler to have an easily accessible method to capitalize the first letter of each word in a string.

    Current implementation:

    internal static string DisplayRandChar()
    {
    Character randomCharacter = new Character();

    CultureInfo cultureInfo = Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture;

    TextInfo textConvert = cultureInfo.TextInfo;

    string displayText = ($"You are {textConvert.ToTitleCase(randomCharacter.name)} the " +
    $"{textConvert.ToTitleCase(randomCharacter.item)}-wielding {textConvert.ToTitleCase(randomCharacter.occupation)}!");

    return displayText;
    }

    Simplified implementation:

    internal static string DisplayRandChar()
    {
    Character…

    • Add F# support for .NET Native

      I had a conversation with @xyziemba and @dotnet on Twitter recently about the .NET Native toolset and features. I understand the F# is not supported at the moment and that support is unlikely to come in the VS 2015 RTM timeframe. I'd like to suggest that you consider adding this support as soon as possible - even if it means some time after the RTM of VS 2015.

      Since I couldn't find a UserVoice request for this - I wanted to put this in.

      Thanks,
      Krishna

        • C# and VB wrong Perception

          I have writing code in Visual Basic since 2005. I see most of the people just talk about C#. Everyone think VB is just very tiny language and cannot do what C# can do. Which I believe is FALSE after the .NET framework.

          Can you re-brand Visual Basic as B# and help this language to get same status and respect as C#.

          VB is really powerful language, but the perception that is built is totally disgusting. Even in universities, No one agrees to let you develop project in VB. This situation is really disappointing and damaging the image of this…

          • When hovering over a class name, have Intellisense indicate when the class is IDisposable

            When hovering over a class name, it would be useful to have Intellisense indicate when the class implements IDisposable, so that it would be immediately clear whether to employ a using block to ensure the object is disposed. I don't mind having to look up other inherited interfaces and base classes, but IDisposable is very common and it's not always obvious whether a class implements it or not. So, I think this indicator in Intellisense would be a time-saver.

              • Transparent editor background

                A transparent editor would help us see the MSDN documentation in another window positioned behind the editor, or try out coding while watching a tutorial in the background without having to minimize and maximize windows. Or it may be used to view our favorite productivity-enhancement videos/visuals as in the example shown with Android Developer Studio in the attached file!

                • Fix the problems with Visual Studio 2015

                  Visual Studio 2015 has become nearly unusable due to the slow loading, sluggish performance, and "timeouts" that plague the latest version of the software. If Microsoft wants developers to continue to use .Net for development of enterprise level software, then the tool used for that development needs to work.

                  Not all development shops need all of the extensions that can be loaded into Visual Studio. However, many of these tools are interdependent and must be installed in order for Visual Studio to function, resulting in a bloated IDE that uses too much memory and takes several minutes to process simple…

                    When enabling typescript in a Windows Universal 10 JavaScript application, the WinRT and WinJS type definitions should be available just like lib.d.ts is available.

                      • warn when an explicitly defaulted function would be ill-formed

                        in code like this:
                        struct S {
                        int& i;
                        S& operator=(S&&) = default; // warn here
                        }

                        the move assignment operator will be deleted instead of defaulted because of the reference. It'd be useful if Visual Studio warned about it.

                        • What is using memory and CPU in VS ?

                          When VS is using (for example) 40% of CPU and 1.8GB of RAM, I would like to know why. For instance, is there an option I can disable or an extension do uninstall that would help me making VS faster ?
                          VS resource management is a black box, and doesn't help the developer experience, one can be really frustrated and turn to simpler editors just to be able to write code.

                          • Support for binary and octet literals in c# is really needed

                            It will be useful for developers in any level if visual studio team add support for numeric literals in bases like binary or octal to all languages in visual studio stack and specially c#.
                            I suppose this presentation :
                            for base 2 like : 0b1010
                            for base 8 like : 0c1234

                              When opening Command Palette, fill the input with the last typed search command but ready to be replaced. This makes calling commands fast (like using a git add followed by a git commit using "git" as search).

                                  • 恢复默认配置

                                    可以在配置里面加上一个按钮,用于恢复全部的默认配置,
                                    有些时候人为配置会出现一些莫名的情况,特别是开启源代码调试的时候,因为更改了选项导致不能命中断点

                                    • I suggest you put a button in the "Visual Studio" opens "Visual Studio Blend" directly from the visual studio.

                                      I suggest you put a button in the "Visual Studio" opens "Visual Studio Blend" directly from the visual studio.
                                      Then I suggest you to insert the chance to do a GUI in "Visual Studio Blend" and using the "Export GUI" or "open GUI ..." contained in the "File" you can open the interface graphics created in "Visual Studio Blend" in "Visual Studio" quickly.

                                        • SASS/LESS variable,mixing,import reference link

                                          I would be greate to follow reference not only in the file, but whole opened project. Like in typescript. To preview variable, mixin, import by Ctrl+F12.
