Welcome to the Visual Studio 2015 UserVoice site. This site is for suggestions and ideas for the IDE of Visual Studio (Community, Professional or Enterprise). You can also add suggestions for Team Services or Visual Studio Code. Or go to Connect to file a bug. Note that Application Insights has moved to its own UserVoice forum.

We also added an Announcements section where we will be posting special opportunities for you to participate in.

Read about current UserVoice statuses and their definitions in our article “What Does the Status of My Feedback Mean?” article.

We look forward to hearing from you!

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.

  1. add possibility to set condition to many breakpoints in batch, not just one by one.

    I have set many breakpoints and wanna debug my app, but I have it parallelised, so debugging is kinda messy. Solution is to set breakpoints' filter to single ThreadId. That's ok, although I have maybe 20 breakpoints to set and no way how to set them in batch.

    • Make go-to-definition and find-references work between F# and C# projects

      In a solution containing a mixture of C# and F# projects, go-to-definition does not work when your starting point is, say, C# and the target function/value/type definition is in F#. (And vice versa.) The same is true for find-all-references.

      This is a major inconvenience when working on this kind of mixed codebase. It would be great if it could work in both directions but even go-to-definition would be a great start.

        • Not possible to work on steps in Excel

          Steps are defined in the form of HTML in the test case.
          When we connect to a TFS Query via Excel (with the team addin), steps are loosing html information.
          Therefore, we are not able to work on test steps in Excel, as we are not authotised to upload changes.

              • Create your own Ada support capable of surpassing the GPL-only .NET

                Dear Microsoft, Create your own Ada support for .NET, capable of surpassing the GPL-only "A#" aka Ada for .NET.

                Two facts are evidence that the worlds programming conventions, as great as they have become, are growing stagnant. (1.) Languages derived or fashioned after C are familiar, but mostly designed to do what C cannot. C# is an example of great accomplishment in C-fashion programming. Still, always creating something new, and then upgrading it is an unstable way further development. The problem lies in C being too primitive and too vague. (2.) Microsoft's .NET is possibly the greatest cross-platform accomplishment since…

                • [IntelliSense/C] Warn when the first function declaration is past the first call.

                  IntelliSense does not trigger a warning when the first declaration of a function (whether it is a forward declaration or definition) is past the first call in a C code file. As this is not compilable, I think IntelliSense should trigger a warning.

                  • [IntelliSense/C] Make default-int optional.

                    When a function declaration is not found, IntelliSense assumes its type is int and that it has no arguments. I would be thankful if you could introduce an option to let it be shown as a warning.
                    I am using external build tools to compile code and hence in-IDE compilation will not show the error in the GUI.

                    • Preserve undo stack when closing a docuemnt

                      I would really like to see the Undo stack survive closing and reopening documents. As much progress as there's been, closing files remains an important part of tab well hygiene, and it would be very nice if this didn't wipe out undo history when you are positioned within that document after reopening it.

                      • Allow files to be closed from Solution Explorer

                        The new filter to display only open files in Solution Explorer is very cool.

                        However, I can't do the thing I am most likely to do at this point - selectively close files.

                        I would like to see a new item in the right click for items in solution explorer which is "Close". This would be disabled when files were not open.

                        Closing and reopening files is a poor workflow because it wipes the undo history (and perhaps other things).

                        • Solution Explorer should allow multiple files to be opened from different projects

                          If I select several files from the same project within Solution Explorer "Open" is an option. Nice.

                          When the files do not all reside in the same project, the option doesn't appear, not so nice

                              貌似这是一个世界性的网站,没有封贴删文之类的现象,所以关于我提出的《物种自私学》这个未建立的学科希望有人关注与探究。
                              这一学科可以很好的解释许多的世界未解之谜,及各领域的难题(包括生物,天文,历史,科技等诸多领域),还能为大家的学习方法之类的东西得到帮助。
                              鉴于本国度中国大家基本有大概的了解,所以本人英语不是很好,加上信息的封锁,只能在此发表这些言论(本人会翻墙,但是许多英文网站看不懂,没办法)。
                              最后加一句吧,这是一个初中毕业的人写的东西,不过现在已经30岁了。

                                  • Automatic refresh for query based suites when clicking on suite

                                    When we have a query based suite, upon clicking on the query based suite to view the tests, it would be nice if the query was automatically ran upon the click to give the user a refreshed set of tests that match the query. This eliminate the need for the user to hit a refresh button and give them the most up to date list of tests cases.

                                    • Ability to copy TFS dashboards

                                      In my organization we have many team project which use a similar base dashboard in project homepage

                                      The idea is to save a dashboard once and apply it to new or existing projects

                                      • Add std::optional since it has been voted into the standard

                                        Why do I need to use boost just to get optional, when it has been voted into the standard?

                                        • Support SAS File Formats as data source and destination in SSIS

                                          Support SAS File Formats as data source and destination file format in SSIS. We often need to exchange data with statisticians and supporting this file format would significantly increase the use of SSIS.
