    • Add some check to publish action...

      (In the publishing wizard) check that the destination folder are not a parent folder of current solution or current project, because if the user check the flag 'delete all existing files prior to publish' all files are deleted (hence also those of solution/project).

                Thanks for the suggestion. As we discussed by email it is possible to extend the publish process itself, but currently it is not possible to extend the UI/UX of the publish dialog itself.

                So the request here is to have extensibility on the publish dialog itself.

                This is the first time that I’m hearing this request (excluding internal Microsoft people). I am curious to see how many others are interested in this.

                If the vote count gets high enough we will take a closer look at this.

              • Provide API or additional setting to control asp.net application restart on filesystem been changed.

                Here is detailed description of what happens and what can not be controlled at all - http://blogs.msdn.com/b/tmarq/archive/2007/11/02/asp-net-file-change-notifications-exactly-which-files-and-directories-are-monitored.aspx

                I'm running project that generates asp pages dynamicaly and then deletes unnecessary files using external tools, and sure it's not acceptable to run session start/end each time it happens. And I did not find any way to controll this process.

                Thank you.

                  • Add DateTimeEditor, ComboBox, Email, FileUpload and PopUp Helpers with callback options and rich Client APIs.

                    As of now, We dont have option to in razor to input the date and time, since we are using some third party dlls or jQuery datepicker ( dont have time in it. ),

                    And also we dont have FileUploadHelper to Upload and PopUp Helpers to popup the div.

                    Finally need a validation on TextBoxFor() Helper to Input only the numbers, Which means it should not allow the Characters if the Model property is a type of long.

                    • Productivity - Automatically create backing field for ctor param

                      When a new property is added to a constructor (string foo) that doesn't already have a similarly-named backing field (private string _foo;), present a glyph (ctrl+.) that will create the field and assign the ctor parameter to this field.

                        • Improve performance on Entity Framework Code-First

                          Code-First can run into some serious performance issues with LazyLoading. I would like to see Code-First (and its lazy loading feature) as a viable option for developing high performance web applications.

                          • Able to store session data both in inproc and out of process, similar to mixed mode session support.

                            It will be great if we can store session data both in inproc and out of process by an application similar to mixed mode session support. So that only crutial session data will be persisted out of process and some non crutial or temp ( depending on situation ) can be stored in InProc.

                            This support will be utilized by non web farm or web garden architecture.

                                      • Automatic Clientside Globalisation using Jquery Globalize

                                        if setting serverside globalisation auto adjust the clientside. this is very important for unobstrusive validation and e.g date formats for the jquery datetime picker or number formats with custom validators.

                                        • Make a non bloated version of Visual Studio - Only Solution explorer and intellisence

                                          Today VS includes a whole range of features that I don't use every day. MSTest, TeamCity and Architecture tools just to name a few. It would be nice with a bare bone version of VS - or at least have the potion to never install these features.

                                          Less is more
