      • Let The JavaScript Code Be Unobtrusive And in C# (C# To JS)

        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…

          • Razor Templating for Dynamic SQL

            It would be a good idea to be able to use the razor templating to create dynamic sql, with full intellysense, and possibly a way to use parameters against SQL injection

              • 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

                    • Ability to add comments to settings

                      When you add settings (application/user) in the Visual Studio IDE. If there was a column to add description/comments along with setting and value. It would make editing the (web.config) settings file in IIS lot easier for other user to know what exactly that setting would do or take values. Currently, you can edit the app.config file manually but next time when you build it overwrites.

                          • Provide more fluent way to join to tables when not using primary keys

                            we have hit a problem when we want to join 2 tables together. Eg: parent-child typical scenario.

                            tblOrder
                            -------------
                            int ID (Primary Key)
                            datetime OrderDate
                            string username

                            tblOrderItems
                            ------------------------
                            int ID (pk)
                            int ProductID
                            string username

                            now - admittedly, this structure is wrong (the child). however in many real world scenarios when introducing EF to existing databases, we have to roll with existing structures and data with very little chance to change them at the present moment in time.

                            Now - in EF5 pre-release - i simply have been unable to create a configuration mapping that links :

                            tblOrder.username -->…

                            • Have UpdatePanels automatically re-attach DOM events bound from jQuery during Postback

                              When an update panel does a postback, even if partial. It unbinds all of your DOM events that you set up in jquery. This also applies to JqueryUI like draggable
                              i.e. $("#OptionsPanel").draggable({ axis: "y", handle: "p" });
                              would stop working after the first postback.

                              • Add inline row table editing that consumes Entity Framework Models

                                Struggling to define this one meaningfully & succinctly, sorry.

                                Just about every MVC example I see uses a form to create a new record in a database model/table; as per the MVC editing view. I could not find any support for inline creation/editing of one or more table rows. What I am saying is that this should be out of the box functionality. The idea is to make the creation of records faster, easier, more efficient, more effective... dare I say, like we had in ASP.NET tables.
                                I will of course help out if it is thought further input would…

                                    Today we do support what you are asking for but only for Windows Azure. If you download the Windows Azure tools when you publish we create a virtual machine and upload it to the Azure cloud. Not sure at this time if we will go beyond supporting this for Azure at this time.

                                    • Fix XslCompiledTransform to work better in partial trust environments

                                      XslCompiledTransform doesn't fully function in partial trust environments because if the TrustedXslt enum is used at construction, and the file contains <msxml:script> blocks, then the script is compiled dynamically to the process identity's Temp directory (C:\Users\<app pool identity>\Local\Temp on most machines).
                                      As it's compiled code, why not put it in the standard .NET Temporary Files directory, thus allowing it to function perfectly well in partial trust environments?
