  1. Make System.Net.Http.Headers.HttpHeaders.GetHeaderString(string headerName) publicly accessible

    Sometimes we will need to extract the raw header value from a HttpRequestMessage or a HttpResponseMessage, and GetHeaderString is the way to do so reliably. Please make this method public.

    • Update the asp to asp.net Migration Tool for newer versions of windows

      Please update the classic asp to asp.net migration tool so it works on newer versions of Windows and Visual Studio.
      It does not work on Windows 7/8 or 10.
      Now that Windows XP is no longer supported, many enterprise intranet sites are due to be upgraded.

      • WebDeploy: Make use of zlib and use compression!!

        One by one file copying is a dealbreaker. Please opt for zlib to compress the whole package, push the tarball, untar it on target and post the result back at once. We don't need one by one file transfer status.

        At least provide an option for it, if people are dumb enough to realize what they don't need! It takes us MINUTES to publish the dam thing on our staging from other country.

        zlib (http://zlib.net/) is used by the whole non-Microsoft world. Node and many other platforms and open software make use of it. It compiles fine on…

          • EnableMSDeployAppOffline - AppOfflineTemplate

            For WebDeploy you can specify <EnableMSDeployAppOffline> in the .pubxml file but this will generate a default app_offline.htm file that you cannot modify. Just provide an option for a template like <AppOfflineTemplate>

            • Add 'Publish Files' context menu item to files in pending changes window

              In the pending changes window it would be great if I could select the files, right-click and select 'publish files' from the context menu.

              This would open the publish dialog as normal and I could publish just the files that have changed.

              • Add a step in aspnet_regiis to check for/recreate Temporary ASP.NET Files folder

                Once the Temporary ASP.NET Files folder under the framework version folder is gone, there's no good way of getting it back. I did this in the 2.0 folder and since it's part of Windows, short of reinstalling Windows, the only way I could fix this was to add the folder manually and add permissions on the folder for IIS_USRS. It would be helpful if this was part of an installer process like aspnet_regiis, or checking the ASP.NET box in the windows features dialog, not sure if that just calls aspnet_regiis or not.

                • oAuth default sample project gives 500 internal server error - please fix

                  The New MVC project with Individual Account Authorisation and a blank default Callback for the 4 oAuth provideres in Startup.Auth.cs currently gives a 500 Internal Server Error from Owin.
                  If a default CallBack URL is defind AND registered with the oAuth provider then it works.
                  The sample code needs to not just have ClientId and ClientSecret but
                  CallbackPath = new Microsoft.Owin.PathString("/Callbacks/External"), //To be registered at Provider - and to NOT be the same as the MVC path Account/ExternalLoginCallback

                  • Create a config file where we can enter names of custom html-elements

                    There should be a way to let the html-editor know about custom elements. This would make working with web components soo much smoother.

                    In the long run it would be good if the editor could parse the elements and learn about their respective attributes.

                      • let a *.dll or *.lib file can provide any version of .net

                              • Don't stop IIS-Express when stopping debugger with enabled Edit&Continue

                                Currently if Edit & Continue is enabled (in VS 2013 Update 3 on x64) stopping the debugger always stops IIS-Express. See MS-Blog http://blogs.msdn.com/b/webdev/archive/2013/07/11/enable-edit-and-continue-debugging-option-is-now-on-by-default-for-new-web-applications-in-vs2013-preview.aspx

                                This is very un-handy. Please don't stop IIS-Express all the time.

                                • Don't leave IE script debugging enabled after debugging an ASP.NET site

                                  It seems that when debugging an ASP.NET site in IE, Visual Studio automatically turns on IE's script debugging setting.
                                  I assume that this is needed in order for Visual Studio to hook into the JavaScript engine and allow debugging JavaScript in VS.

                                  However, when I am done testing my site, I will be out browsing the web and get constantly interrupted with dialog boxes telling me about errors occurring in the pages I am visiting - pages where these error messages have no meaning to me whatsoever.
                                  Getting rid of these boxes essentially requires two clicks - one to check…

                                    • Make c# computed properties (getter only) get {} syntax optional

                                      for a property like :

                                      public int GetTotal() { get { return Price + Tax; } }

                                      why not something like :

                                      public int GetTotal() { return Price + Tax; }

                                      only for getter only properties.

                                      • Add button To Clear The Application Cache Without Resetting The AppDomain

                                        Allow us to clear the iiscache without having to reset iis or recycle the application pool. While developing we have to manually clear the cache and the current process is time consuming using iisreset (which doesn't always work) or through IIS.

                                        Add a button within the IDE that clears the cache of the current solution.
