  1. Html helpers htmlAttributes way to pass raw strings

    There is no way to pass raw data into html helpers which have htmlAttributes. For example:
    @Html.LabelFor(model => model.RegistrationDate, new { data_init = "{\"min\": \"2000-01-01\"}" })
    will produce:
    <label data-init="{&quot;min&quot;: &quot;2000-01-01&quot;}" for="RegistrationDate">Registration date</label>

    It would be good to be able pass raw data in some cases not for every html helper as described here:

    • ClientSideDataSource

      Develop something LIke SqlDataSource but client side: It would make a lot faster to control great amount of data using GridView, FormView, DetailsView, etc.

      • WebApplicationLibrary

        Now you can not create a reference to another project (webApplication or ClassLibrary) that has non compiled files (aspx, ascx, cshtml, js, css, config, etc.), which are usually published on the server as is.

        More precisely, you can create a reference, but when you start the application, these files will not be found, because located in a different directory.

        For example, if the project A and project B (WebApplication) contains same cshtml-files, they could be placed in a separate project (WebApplicationLibrary?).

        Usually it is necessary to separate one large project into several smaller projects (modules).
        Something similar is used in…

            • Enable subdomain routing support in MVC

              Everyone who need this feature has implemented their own workaround for this. Can we have the framework support for routing based on sub domains?

              • use package management console to add scaffolding item

                I would be great to be able to add scaffold items by running a command in the package console like Add-Controller -model:Person -views:All -context:MyDataContext -useansyc

                Or something similar to that. I have used the MvcScaffolding nuget package and it was on the right track but appears it is going by the way side. This some functionality should be include in VS out of the box.

                        how about having perfect industry standard small samples embeded in ide or code snippets that are needed to give developers a sence of confidence that whatever they are doing in correct and as per industry standard.

                        • Allow clearing of client ScrollPosition value as a Page Method

                          There is currently no server-side way to clear the values set by the Page.MaintainScrollPositionOnPostback property.

                          The only way to "reset" the client scroll position is a messy javascript injection hack. Can a method be included to clear the scroll position, e.g.
                          Page.ClearScrollPosition
                          Page.ClearScrollPositionX
                          Page.ClearScrollPositionY

                          Alternative can the internal method LoadScrollPosition (
                          http://referencesource.microsoft.com/#System.Web/xsp/system/Web/UI/Page.cs#4f5017a57b4c846d) be overrideable?

                                • Implement Async/Await in Webform IN A PRACTICAL WAY

                                  I really like async/await, but I can't say I am impressed with the way it has been implemented in webforms. If I understand correctly RegisterAsyncTask doesn't give you any control on when the code is executed in the execution pipeline (and not even available within master pages!). I am sure there must be a simpler way. Why use events in the first place? Webforms are really not forms, and all these methods could really be functions returning a task, why do they need to be voids returning event handlers? Why not let users define Task functions that will be called…

                                    For better performance and management, the compiler could output just one dll with all pages, classes, etc, inside one dll. that can be loaded in memory.

                                    • Generic razor helper

                                      With the help of this you could create an helper, outsource it to an other file and use it in all your views.

However it would be much neater in term of deployment for this feature to be available within the asp.net project, without having to change the system configuration. The asp.net project would be self-contained and when deployed, IIS would run the background task based on some settings defined in web.config.

                                        Azure added WebJobs, which is effectively doing that. So this doesn't look like an…
