      • Open Source all of the asp.net providers

        At this point there should be no more black box providers for asp.net.

        • You've gone a long way with VS SQL support ... Now, we need much better support for Azure Table Storage

          We need help in reducing the amount of time to code for Azure Table Storage and deal with table storage in the IDE. I'd like to see and modify entities and tables right from the IDE ... building the functionality of software like ClumsyLeaf's TableXplorer right into VS. Also, it would be nice to have more/better support in data source controls and data-bound controls for table storage data and keys. It's all very LOW level right now and takes quite a while to code for Azure Table Storage relative to coding against SQL/SQL Azure storage. [Also, btw ... can you…

          • Add button To Clear The Application Cache Without Resetting The AppDomain

            Allow us to clear the iiscache without having to reset iis or recycle the application pool. While developing we have to manually clear the cache and the current process is time consuming using iisreset (which doesn't always work) or through IIS.

            Add a button within the IDE that clears the cache of the current solution.

              • calender extender control

                Hi

                I have a below code to disable weekends(saturdays, sundays) in the calender extender control:

                for(var i=0; i<sender._days.all.length; i++)
                {
                for(var j=0; j<6; j++)
                {
                if(sender._days.all[i].id == "clnDtDesired_day_"+ j +"_0")
                {
                sender._days.all[i].disabled = true;
                sender._days.all[i].innerHTML = "<div>"+sender._days.all[i].innerText+ "</div>";
                }
                if(sender._days.all[i].id == "clnDtDesired_day_"+ j +"_6")
                {
                sender._days.all[i].disabled = true;
                sender._days.all[i].innerHTML = "<div>"+sender._days.all[i].innerText+ "</div>";
                }
                } }

                This code will be called in OnClientShown event.

                But the "sender._days.all" code segment in the above code doesn't exeucte properly in Firefox and Chrome. Its retruning "undefined" instead of "html element collection".

                How to fix this ? Whereas Its working well in all versions of…

                  • Put 'rename' as first item in smart tag for controls

                    I name my controls. So do most people - it's the most common thing you do. So why isn't it in the smart tag that appears for controls? Why do I have to scroll thru properties every time?

                    • End Date of JavaScript replace completely by C# like S#

                      It is ugly , confusing , non sense , I write in C# and that all what I need , I can write methods and specify method target , Client or Server
                      [Target:Cient]
                      void onMouseEnter_Image1()
                      {
                      Image1.ImageUrl="myimage.jpg";
                      }
                      [Target:Cient]
                      void onMouseLeave_Image1()
                      {
                      Image1.ImageUrl="myimage.jpg";
                      }
                      [Target:Cient]
                      void RowMouseEnter_GridView1()
                      {
                      //highlight the row
                      }

                      JavaScript should end , and replaced by more extensive language the mapp all it's feature , you can implement a Decorator JavaScript Pattern , which will remove it ugly face.

                      • Improve bundle syntax on razor cshtml

                        All of these syntax is working, please make an official microsoft version

                        01.
                        @this.BundleScriptsAsOne(@<MyBundle><script type="text/javascript" src="js/navigator/activity.js"></script>

                        I have lot more examples of this
                        but i believe you got the idea

                        This insanely productive for me
                        my inline script is automatically bundled (the bundle is cached ofcourse)

                        I would like to have microsoft version of it

                        Notice that I DO NOT use "~" on src path
                        that character is horrible, no one from php community use it

                          • use package management console to add scaffolding item

                            I would be great to be able to add scaffold items by running a command in the package console like Add-Controller -model:Person -views:All -context:MyDataContext -useansyc

                            Or something similar to that. I have used the MvcScaffolding nuget package and it was on the right track but appears it is going by the way side. This some functionality should be include in VS out of the box.

                            • Make WebDeploy CRC check more efficient

                              Now when we have MSDeployUseChecksum it works great in terms of precision but slow in terms of performance. This is a problem for a larger websites because it takes up to 4, 10, ... minutes to calculate the checksums.

                              Here is the idea: combine time stamp checks with CRC.

                              Algorithm: do a time stamp check first. Then do a CRC check for all found differences.

                              This will improve performance for some frequent scenarios while keeping the precision.

                              • 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.
