  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:

    • Possibility to hide XML comments and attributes for classes and methods

      It's good to add XML comments to methods and classes. Especially for intellisence reasons but while reading a piece of code I think it's waste of screen space. Makes it harder to navigate the code. It would be great if I had the opportunity to have it always collapsed. Maybe with a symbol next to the method where I can hover the comment.

      Same goes for attributes. I want to see that there are some, but not the details.

      • Ship some Solution Templates that show best practices for creating a multi-project solution.

        I'd like to see a few Microsoft-approved, in-the-box, solution templates showing how one might set up a proper solution for a real application. There is a ton of confusion about how to do this in the industry, and copping out by saying "well we can't know how every customer will want to do it" is lame. Sure, many customers will do their own thing from Blank Solution, but help the 80% fall into the pit of success by giving them all the pieces in all the right places.

        • Microsoft Ajax CDN Browser

          There should be some facility to browse Microsoft Ajax CDN files from within VS IDE with "get local copy" and "add reference" options.

          • Visual Studio/page inspector detects views are affected by a css change

            It would be very handy to make a css change in visual studio and then have VS compute which mvc views will be affected by the change. The summary of results (views afected) could be displayed in a list/window which the user can click on one line at a time to go see the effected ui in the .cshtml file and the rendered view

            • OOTB pagination control in ASPX and Razor

              Please implement an OOTB configurable pagination control for ASPX and Razor view engines in upcoming release of Web Tools and extend the support to MVC5 as well. The control may be similar to, but more versatile than, this third party PagedList (https://github.com/TroyGoode/PagedList)

                        • make @RenderSection and @RenderBody process according to Layout

                          @RenderBody is running first, and then the @RenderSection in order they occur in (Body or Layout?) even when @RenderSection is done before the @RenderBody in the Layout file.

                          This behavior is unintuitive and causes unintended bugs as PageData["variable"] values get modified between Body and Sections.

                          Now that I have figured out some of the mystery here, I can avoid the unintended bugs, but I would like this fixed to make the code more intuitive.

                          • Support jQuery Dialog within Unobtrusive Ajax JS and AjaxHelper

                            Extend the jquery.unobtrusive-ajax.js library to allow a ConfirmDialogId attribute that points to a jQuery dialog that is used to confirm the user really wants to carryout the ajax action.

                            It would need a tweak to asyncRequest method.

                            This would be in-addition to the existing but ugly Confirm popup.

                            A simple update to the AjaxOptions class would also be needed.

                            I'm willing to provide the changes - probably a couple of hours effort.

                            There are lots of blog posts / SO questions about fudging a solution.

                                    • Editor: IntelliSense support for custom configuration sections

                                      There is no easy way to support IntelliSense for custom configuration sections in web.config. You can do it, but must manually copy schema files to system folders etc.

                                      • Set same Reference Path to multiple selected projects in solution

                                        Now you can only set a reference path to a single project in the solution at a time. I would like to select multiple projects and set the same Reference path for all in one time
