  1. Entity Framework related

    How about something like Smart Entities , which hold all the information within itself like its datacontext , where to save, validations, Validation errors and many more. On the consumer side it should expose very simple methods or properties.

    • Multiline parameters code format (Ctrl+k,Ctrl+d)

      In MVC 4 project open App_Start\RouteConfig.cs file and paste the following:

      routes.MapRoute(
      name: "MyName",
      url: "MyName/{action}/{id}",
      defaults: new { action = "Index", id = UrlParameter.Optional }
      );

      You will notice the multi-lined parameter list is not formatted correctly (with 4 space indentation bias). Pressing Ctrl+K,Ctrl+D won't work either.

      • resources from db

        Give us the possibility to register resources on DB with a built-in resources provider and manager. Without a strongly types like actual resource system. And for sure align this change with model metadata attributes like displayname and any validation rules.

        • Fix resource routing, do not automatically append with controller or area name

          src="js/navigator/jquery-ui-1.8.13.custom.min.js"

          such relative path will be changed into
          {Controller}/js/navigator/jquery-ui-1.8.13.custom.min.js
          or
          {Area}/{Controller}/js/navigator/jquery-ui-1.8.13.custom.min.js

          that is not right, all relative path from javascript or css
          should not be appended with controller or area name

          and please stop guiding people to use "~" for path

          • providing command based installation of javascript frameworks into the project.

            Like Npm it will be good to do the same thing from visual studio command prompt. New project types based on the JavaScript frameworks.

            • Return Documentation to Microsoft Document Explorer in VS VNext

              Return Visual Studio and .NET Framework documentation to Microsoft Document Explorer, like in Visual Studio 2008, and SQL Server 2008 R2. The Help Library Agent is very limited and slow. Microsoft Document Explorer is faster and have more features than Help Library Agent.

              • Provide an 'Add-in' dashboard page that shows CPU, Memory and other performance utilisation aspects from within VisualStudio

                There are many packages available to install in Visual studio. After installing a few, Visual Studio can begin to perform very slowly, or it may only exhibit this after some usage time. It would be helpful to see what add-ins are consuming most resources and provide a better way to disable offending add-ins. Currently its a 'remove your plugins and see if things improve' kind of rationale. This is obviously annoying and may not even help. This would also assist add-in vendors as they would get more direct feedback rather than users assuming its a particular plug in out of…

                  • Generic razor helper

                    I need the possibility to create 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.

                    • Make integration of mvc with web forms seamless

                      Currently in order to add asp.net mvc to an existing asp.net webforms project is not exactly pain free. Here's an example

Obviously lots of people have existing web forms sites/applications that are not going anywhere but would also like to integrate mvc into them as well. Currently, I would not call this user experience pleasant. I would be nice to be able to easily add mvc to an existing web forms site. It could be a NuGet package, a right-click on the web form site that has "add mvc to…

                      • Unload assembly at runtime

                        We are developing an asp.net mvc plugginable web site. Out of every IoC framework (MEF, Windsor, Mono.Addins, MAF, etc.) what we need is to load and unload assemblies from an appdomain without unload the entire appdomain. This is a requirement for a Always-on website (like web app in the cloud). I can't shutdown the site every time i need to upload a new assembly or an updated assembly.

                        .NET Remoting is not good enough for us because is slow and there are many limit with marshaling.

                        Please, please, please. Can you give us the possibility to unload assembly from main…

                        • solution explorer scrolling

                          in solution explorer when scroll down, the solution node itself becomes invisible (because it is on a top of explorer).

                          make the solution node visible all the time, so we can right-click on it regardless of scroll position. just like they have it in PowerTools extension.

                          thank you

                            • Add overloaded version of HttpApplication.RegisterModule that accepts preconditions

                              Modern web apps use many kinds of dynamic functionality on 'static' requests - javascript/css minification, image compression, etc.

                              Yet ASP.NET continues to handicap developers by stubbornly sticking to extension-based stereotypes and discrimination.

                              HttpApplication.RegisterModule() is a recent example. A great opportunity for code over configuration, but it defaults to precondition="managedHandler", handicapping the great value it could have offered.

                              • 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…

                                    • A generic LDAP authentication provider

                                      It would be nice to be able to authenticate against generic LDAP Servers instead of Just AD.

                                      • Provide a more helpful message for viewstate exceptions

                                        If you've ever received the following message, you know it takes FOREVER to track down the source:

                                        Failed to load viewstate. The control tree into which viewstate is being loaded must match the control tree that was used to save viewstate during the previous request. For example, when adding controls dynamically, the controls added during a post-back must match the type and position of the controls added during the initial request.

                                        I would like to propose that the exception message include the UniqueID of the control that failed to restore ViewState so the problem spot in the control tree can…

                                        • Remove the InitializeSimpleMembership attribute from MVC AccountController

                                          Doing the initialization with the default code can often fail, i.e. moving projects between folders. Removing this attribute would help.
