    • SSDT: Globally suppress errors on Database projects

      We use database projects mostly for getting database objects into source control and doing schema comparisons to push changes back and forth between databases. Everything works well expect unresolved reference errors floods the error list. Can we get the ability to globally suppress errors on these types of projects?

      • tfs work item history needs maximize zoom badly

        when *adding* a history item, the maximize button is available. great.
        when reviewing the items with colleagues (in a mtg for example), the history stays small in the lower right corner, no way to zoom it in.

        second issue: while it is possible to paste formatted text, it would be great to have proportional fonts available for code snippets (bold, italic is available, but not enough).

        thanks

        • Be able to customize spacing for generic casts

          In coding preferences, you are able to choose how spacing works for parenthesis, such as the difference between:

          void Foo() {
          // No space between Foo and ()
          }

          and

          void Foo () {
          // There is a space between Foo and ()
          }

          However, there is no way, as far as I can tell, to do this with generic casts, such as:

          List<Foo> myList; // No space between List and <Foo>

          and

          List <Foo> myList; // There is a space between List and <Foo>

          So far, it seems to default to the no space variety, which I am not…

          • SQL Server Object Explorer group or filter by schema

            I have a database with hundreds of dbo stored procedures that I have to one with a schema that sorts alphabetically lower. I'd like to have schemas be listed as the top items of a branch folder like "Stored Procedures" which would let me pick the schema and then only see sprocs with that schema.

            • T4 and Text Transform features in Visual Studio 2017

              There’s less resource with T4(text transform) in visual studio 2017, the lack of color highlighting, syntax checking and the lack of vendors, I suggest add some more information about it.

              • Find all tests for a class or function

                I would like to have the option to right click on a class or function and get the option "Select all related tests". Then in Test Explorer I should get a new group "Selected Tests" where all the tests are listed which somehow execute that function, or all the function of a class, if a class was right clicked.

                • Command Line window search

                  The C/C++ > Command Line window in project properties should give the possibility to search for text inside the "All Options" area. Sometimes there are many parameters there and it's hard to check if you have some parameter or not.

                    • Why is it so hard to find the SDK I need?

                      I'm coming from Xcode, where it is really easy to see what SDK I need for a particular project and quickly add it to the IDE. Visual Studio is a pain and hard to find answers for.

                          Provide an option to disable lightweight solution load prompts, I have add-ins that it is incompatible with so I don't want to be prompted. Additionally I quite often get notified about Resharper slowing down startup, I don't want to be notified about this add-in, I use it too much to disable

                              • Make Live Unit Testing available for UWP applications

                                It would be good if live testing was enabled for UWP applications, so that a similar development environemnt could be set up like NCrunch. Currently there doesn't seem to be a way to include UWP class libraries in externally hosted containers to enable Live Testing from different unit test projects -- or include portable class libraries in a UWP application that could be tested differently.

                                        • Add manage package for yarn like the one for bower

                                          It seems that bower is slowly dying & npm is slow.

                                          It would be great if we could have the same ui we have for bower but for yarn
