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:

  1. Add support to automate the bug creation for failed functional/Integrated tests in VSTS

    We have used VSTS for our build automation and for running automated (functional/Integrated)tests, but creation of bug is not supported. It would be helpful in automation if you could support bug creation for coded UI and Selenium tests written in class library.

    • Ship unistd.h and other missing stdlib headers with VS

      To build many applications you need unistd.h and many other headers, currently not bundled with VS. Add them.

      • Add an [open containing mapped folder] option on right clicking a file in team explorer pending items

        Currently you can [open in source control exporer] but it would be helpful to be able to open the actual windows explorer folder where the file is.

        • Visual Studio 2015 Community is very slow on starting

          on right-clicking on a text file to load it with Visual Studio 2015 it takes a Long time, although nothing else than the text Editor is required to process that file. there should be some optional start-up Switches, which avoid azure/Cloud/etc... loading when not explicitely needed.
          the fast-Launch Option is already checked, but ist slow anyway

            • Make XAML designer only update when saving.

              Currently the designer tries to interpret the XAML all the time causing Visual Studio to hang for short periods of time.

                  • C++ IntelliSense should hide privately inherited members

                    IntelliSense already hides private members that are inaccessible, but it still shows public members that have been privately inherited. Example:

                    struct A {
                    int x;
                    };

                    class B : private A {
                    int y;
                    };

                    B foo;

                    When you type "foo.", IntelliSense suggests "x", even though it is not accessible

                    • CodeMap show scope (public/internal/private) of Types

                      In CodeMap i'd like to see the scope (Public/Internal/Private) of the Types and i would also filter on that.

                      • Why is there a feedback button?

                        Why is there a feedback button? It's distracting and I'm tired of everything in Win10 asking me questions. Even my login screen wallpaper asks for feedback. I'm constantly being distracted by the bombardment of feedback requests!

                            • Reduce the noise in CSS intellisense

                              The data table that is used to provide CSS intellisense in Visual Studio should be editable by users so that they can remove unwanted completion entries.

                              For example, every time I want to add the `width` property I have to type four characters "widt" in order to get past the completion for "windows". Now I have never in my life used windows and I would just like to remove it from intellisense.

                                With each breakpoint, I should be able to maintain some notes...

                                frequently, I need to save some pointers or values.
                                For lazy people entire state of Auto/Local window should be saved.
                                These windows could have icons to save the current states.
                                State of the Auto/Local-window, I mean the variables and their values.

                                These notes should be arranged by the visits..
                                Anytime during the debug i should be able to access the notes via
                                the breakpoints hierarchy.
                                The Notes can themselves be arranged by debug-sessions.

                                I, this will be great help to all developers..
                                Thanks,
                                Jyoti Swarup

                                  • More convenient navigation using CodeMap

                                    I try CodeMap a few times and I find it really useful. However, the interaction is mouse-intensive and I have to switch between mouse and keyboard frequently when using it to navigate code.

                                    I hope I can use keyboard to complete important interactions in CodeMap. Here are some ideas:
                                    (1) Users can jump to another function only by pressing Ctrl+Up/Down/Left/Right key without any mouse interaction, when writinig code in the editor window.
                                    (2) Using key shour-cut to find current function's callers/callees.
                                    (3) Save parts of a map and load them into viewport when required

                                    Actually, I implement my ideas into…

                                    • continuous forms OR continuous sub forms

                                      as MS Access developer , i am developing applications on MS Access , i used to deal with subforms, continuous and continuous subforms.
                                      so in the great MS Visual Studio; this feature not exist !
                                      we need this feature in VS or any other development program (not MS Access) has this features . i prefer this on VS .
                                      i know there (DataRepeater) or (GridView) are similar but we need something integrated or built-in controls easier to deal with .

                                        • ByRef overloading in VB

                                          The following "Add" methods in C# can't be called by VB codes directly.

                                          public class CCRawList<T> : IList<T>
                                          {
                                          ...
                                          public void Add(T item)
                                          {
                                          Add(ref item);
                                          }
                                          public void Add(ref T item)
                                          {
                                          if (count == Elements.Length)
                                          {
                                          Capacity = Elements.Length * 2;
                                          }
                                          Elements[count++] = item;
                                          }
                                          ...
                                          }

                                          So, please implement a new syntax for VB like this to perform ByRef overloading:

                                          Add(ByVal item) ' equals to Add(item); in C#
                                          Add(item) ' equals to Add(ref item); in C#
