    • Keep Debugger Events after the debug session ended

      from external user: Can you keep the debugger events after the debugging session? Would be cool to analyze my debug outputs, exceptions etc. after ending the debug session. I am missing the white markers in the diagnostic chart.

      • Better support for fsproj

        I am constantly in the .fsproj file.

        1. I rename a file, oh dear, its content type is none now and its floated to the top, time to open .fsproj again.
        2. I need to move a file to a different folder. Need to open .fsproj
        3. files in .fsproj are both in the same folder, separated by another file in a different folder. Need to open .fsproj file and put them next to eachother.

        • Implement interface, but don't insert into code only copy to clipboard

          Implement interface, but don't insert into code only copy to clipboard.
          Or add menu item to a right-click menu to implement interface at current cursor position.

          • Allow apps to attach HttpMessageHandlers to HttpClient objects created in a referenced library

            Scenario:

            1. Developer writes app A and references library B.
            2. Library B creates an HttpClient object on behalf of the app and uses it to send HTTP requests and receive responses.
            3. App A must have the ability to inspect, log, modify or trace HTTP requests and responses made by C.

            This is not possible today since HttpMessageHandler objects can only be added to an HttpClient object created in the same scope.

            This idea is to:
            Add an API to allow adding an HttpMessageHandler to an HttpClient object created within a referenced library.

            • Solutions Explorer : Viewing features in chronological order

              Currently all features found within the solutions explorer are ordered alphanumerically. I am working on a project which could potentially require hundreds or even thousand of future features. I recognized there would be tremendous value in having the capability to arrange the view based on chronological order so that myself and my team can view which features have been most recently modified without having investigate each feature individually. I have desperately tried to find a way to modify the views, but it appears that this is not possible in this manner.

              I believe that including a "sort by" feature for…

                540 pages of suggestions. I'm not sure if anyone will read my suggestion anymore. VSO could have its own uservoice account.

                  • Better support for multiple monitors

                    I use three monitors and have problem. VS is maximized on one monitor (with the code and designer MDI) on a second monitor I have maximized a window containing the properties window and the solution explorer (docked side by side). When I edit XAML an click in the properties window, the contents of that window changes to show file properties for the file currently selected in the solution explorer (probably due to the editor window loosing focus, as this behaviour is not occuring if the properties window is docked in the main IDE window). If I want to edit xaml…

                      Allow mixed-mode debugging in C# Unit Tests for Windows/Windows Phone Store apps. It is hard to write C++/CX components and debug crashes in C# Unit Tests.

                      • A Razor Designer the same way we design XAML.

                        I'm learning MVC 5 and looking forward I don't even see a designer for the views yet. I don't know the roadmap for MVC but definitely, we need a designer. I feel like the time we wrote Autocad Lisp. Not only we need a designer in Visual Studio but the same way we design the great XAML in Blend which is absolutely fabulous !

                          • RESTfull Console on Visual Studio

                            Hello,

                            Visual Studio don't have a RESTful Console. When i'm developing a WEB API, i need to test my ApiController but i have nothing for testing with that IDE.

                            I propose to create a little extension like Restfull console on Chrome Apps.

                              • Make Fakes available with Visual Studio Professional Subscription

                                Fakes and Shims are only useful if every developer in the team is able to use it to enhance their unit tests. Limiting its availability to just Architects and Senior developers (who usually have Premium or Ultimate level subscriptions) sounds like such a bad idea. This is killing the power of such potentially amazing tool! Please consider this.

                                Thanks.

                                  • An improvement for Visual Studio dark theme regarding tab titles

                                    I love nearly everything about Visual Studio except one thing.

                                    The title of all open tabs are in while font color and the current tab is also white and bold.

                                    When I have a lot of tabs open, this is always annoying to search for the current tab among the titles since the only difference is that the current tab has a bold font and background is slightly brighter.

                                    I hope you make the current tab more visible and obvious in the next versions.

                                    • integrate MSDN library

                                      Re integrate the MSDN Library into the IDE. Its is after all what the I in IDE stands for. I would suggest at least making it optional.

                                      • Keep wildcard include when adding matching file to project

                                        Being able to include files in a project via a wildcard is a nice feature but VS removes the wildcard and replaces it with individual inclusions for each matching file whenever I add or remove a file that matches the wildcard.
                                        For example, this:
                                        <ItemGroup>
                                        <None Include="Features\*.feature" />
                                        </ItemGroup>

                                        Becomes this:
                                        <ItemGroup>
                                        <None Include="Features\Authentication.feature" />
                                        <None Include="Features\SpecFlowFeature1.feature" />
                                        <None Include="Features\SystemSmokeTest.feature" />
                                        </ItemGroup>
