  1. Improve the Event Handler Wizard

    I'm using Visual Studio 2015. The Event Handler Wizard is the same since a long time... The Event Handler Wizard has room for improvement. The dialog box is not expendable, the list box is stupidly small in a big dialog box. When you need to select amongst a lot of classes, it's a real pain. Why not adding two messages type at the same time (if requested using check box) COMMAND and COMMAND_UPDATE_UI
    Make it more usable would be really nice

      • Importing LTAR files to sql server automatically

        Importing "LoadTest archive results (LTAR file)" to SQL Server through "Open and manage load test results" in Visual Studio is time taking. Having an automated way of importing all LTAR file to SQL server will help in saving time. We are not able to import all the LTAR to SQL server in an automated way?

                • Console log for VS Emulator for Android

                  When running the VS emulator outside of Visual Studio, the emulator should have a console log window to be able to see the console.log outputs.

                  This is my workflow. I launch the VS emulator using the emulator manager, then I use TACO CLI to build and run the app in the emulator. I need a way to be able to see the console logs!

                      • readonly set

                        Over time properties have adopted numerous constructs to free the programmer from having to code the backing field in addition to the property. One of the constructs missing is "readonly set".

                        The community has been tending to use "private set" but that's not really the same thing. "readonly set" would limit setting the property (meaning the backing field) only during instantiation, and -- most importantly -- would tell other programmers the property will not be changed even by the owning class at any point later. Basically all the same arguments for why "readonly" exists for member fields.

                        To what extent…

                        • Bigger code window in Visual Studio Express 2012 for Windows Desktop

                          In Visual Studio Express 2012 for Windows Desktop it seems to me that the code window is to small. The things above it are to big. Take to much room.

                          I mean this stuff above the code. The big (much to big) logo. The menu. The toolbar. The line for the open files. The code has not enough room. (Excuse my poor english, i'm from germany).

                          This is worse as it was in Visual Studio 2010. In 2012 the conde was kicked even more in the background. Visual Studio is to much emphasized at the upper portion of the screen.

                            • levels of inheritance

                              I love the new filter in the IntelliSense (VS 2017), to filter clases, structs, namespaces, etc.

                              However, in the case of a Class, I would also like its methods and fields (properties) according to the level of inheritance of the class.

                              So, I would like to have a Listbox next to the button (class), to check/uncheck what levels I want to list in the IntelliSense.

                              If I check just the Level 0, then are showed only the methods of the own class. Methods of the base class or father class are ommitted.
                              If you want to list also the methods…

                              • add more detailed descriptions to project options.

                                I know most people will know what certain optimizations mean, but better detailed descriptions might help some people newer to C++. I myself know about all the options, but explaining how something, say /O3, will impact the code will be helpful at a glance. I know people could research what certain compiler options mean, but you could at least explain the impacts of lesser used options.

                                  • New C#

                                    C# хорошо развивается как новыми возможностями, так синтаксическим сахаром. Решая различные задачи, я с несколькими сложностями в их реализации в силу того, что C# на это не способен. Поэтому хочу предложить на рассмотрение того, чтобы я хотел видеть в C#:

                                    1. Создание объекта

                                    var myType = typeof(myClass);
                                    var myObject = (myClass)Activator.CreateInstance(myType);

                                    Хотелось бы использовать название класса как переменную

                                    var myVariable = myClass;
                                    var myObject = (myVariable)Activator.CreateInstance(typeof(myVariable));

                                    2. Вызов расширенной функции для перечисления

                                    public enum Numbers
                                    {
                                    One = 1,
                                    Two = 2,
                                    Three = 3
                                    }

                                    public static class ExtentionEnum
                                    {
                                    public static bool IsContains(this Numbers source, string value)
                                    { …

                                    • Slipstream new components during Upgrade

                                      When Updating versions (15.2 --> 15.3) that has new/additional components (Framework 4.7), offer to install them at Upgrade instead of running Modify after the Upgrade

                                      • Hidden XAML Designer has a resize thumb that's way too close to the debug panels' resize thumb.

                                        When Design view is collapsed, don't make it resizeable, as there are no visual cues to determine if I am dragging Design view or Debug windows (what I always ALWAYS am trying to do). Too often, I end up growing the Design view (not useful to me) rather than the Debug panel (very useful, but never EVER sized correctly, going back to VS6 at least) When there are too many input methods or too many input targets in proximity, you have to start looking at the misclick penalty the user incurs.

                                        • "extract interface"

                                          When using Extract Interface, the interface created should have the same public / internal / private visibility as the class it was extracted from.
