  1. ASP.NET MVC allow controller code update while server running

    In Webforms on Visual Studio 2010, you could update a code file even while the server was running - or you could stop the server, update code and the updates push through although the server is stopped.

    In MVC, you can only update a view but not a controller while the server is running. Maybe i dont understand the inner workings but it sure made quick development updates faster without having to 'start debugging'

    • Allow for use of dynamic variable names in .NET and VB specifically

      While, when building an SQL statement, within a Web Pages .vbhtml module, I can write -

      HWB_Series_Books_sqlCommand = "SELECT * FROM Titles WHERE Titles.Available_in_Series_" & Req_Series & " = 1"

      where Req_Series is a variable containing, in my case, a capital letter in the range A to P, thus creating a dynamic reference to one of 16 fields, all of whose names begin with the same first 20 letters.

      OR

      in the case of Form Controls I could write something like

      Dim LabelName = "Label 1"
      Me.Controls(LabelName).Text = "Publisher"

      thus being able to dynamically change the label whose text is…

      • Allow generating resources from code view

        Currently, you are only able to generate local resources while in either split or design view. As a simple fix, enable the menu item, and switch into split view while the wizard runs and then switch back.

          • Exclusionary generic argument method modifiers

            For example, you could add modifiers specifying that a method only compiles if the generic arguments do not implement iEnumerable

              • Bring WebPages into the One ASP.NET family

                The marketing literature includes ASP.NET Web Pages (WebMatrix) as part of the family but it is pretty obvious that it is missing from the tooling. We have made a significant code investment in Web Pages since we started with WebMatrix a few years ago and we love the rapid development this facilitates.

                We no longer use the WebMatrix tool and simply use VS 2013 and NuGet packages. We still use WebMatrix.Data and the Conery's Massive ORM for data access.

                Now we are entering a new dev phase where we want to begin using MVC and WebAPI and are confused about…

                • DATATYPE property for TEXTBOXES controls

                  At present what we do is that - We take a textbox and button in asp.net. And then double click on the button to generate its event handler. In the event handler function we declare a variable which could properly handle the textbox value. Further we use the conversion function which converts the textbox value to the proper variable type.

                  So my idea is that - if we think through programmers point of view we can directly think of the textbox as a variable. So now the programmer can think textbox's ID as variable name. Now to save the efforts…

                    Need to have tools that gives interface like an app on tablet. Need something that connects asynchronous to server and give the users a rich experience like an win app or something like that. The 3rd party tools can be adopted to next framework as well.

                        RESTFul API should be provides hypermedia types and the WebAPI could provide native support to hypermedia and create automatically links to resources.

                        The WebAPI implementatio could have setting variable to indicate the automatically links creation.

                              While razor made a great job in simplifying the html part of the code, there is still a lot we can do.
                              1) We can have the JavaScript and CSS files related to a specific page in a separate folder, and the files will have the same name of the view, and when the framework looks for a view it should also look for a JS and CSS file with the same name, (this will save us from everything in one page)
                              2) The JavaScript might be written in C#, and we can use a "C# to javscript" conversion, which…

                                    • In the copy web site box, allow me to compare two files.

                                      Before (or instead of) copying a file from one site to another it would be very useful to be able to compare the two files to see what differences there are.

                                        Hi BWK, we are currently investing to make the Web App project and Website publishing experience the same. We are bringing all the Web app project publish experience to Websites.

                                        We are also interested in having a feature like you state on the Publish dialog. Since Copy Website is only for websites we are likely to invest in the compare feature for the publish dialog since it is shared with both Web app project and Websites.

                                      • should add functionals as StrongPassword attribute instead of Password, but as let to save previous password in indentity

                                        I see that it's idea very good to help .NET applications become more stronger and secure

                                        • Provide Razor syntax highlight when added as link

                                          When I add Razor file as link syntax highlighting and intelisense doesn't work. It should work like in others files (CS, JS, CSS).
