Enabling button for directly opening the search engine[Google/Bing] against each error encountered while debugging.
Whenever we are getting some error[the error types can be classified ] while debugging,VS should provision with a single button named as "Google it" or "Bing it" against the error..so that user can directly click the button and see the results against that error in search engine instead of going to the search engine and type/paste the error and press enter.It will save developer time and improve productivity.12 votes
Pl provide a tool for multi selection dropdown that we can use in asp.net. All other equivalent stuff available out there has its own bigs.
Thank you for considering.

Please enhance the ApiExplorer to fully support the AsyncEntitySetController & EntitySetController. It is possible to generated some help documentation by using ApiExplorerSetting( IgnoreApi=false) attribute, but the help pages contain the incorrect relative path / route, the Queryable Gets are ignored, and the request/response samples are missing.
Optionally, exposing some of the internal class such as HttpRouteParser, HttpParsedRoute, etc… would allow for custom ApiExplorers (like ODataApiExplorer).11 votes
This would be a new, modern project tempting supporting Razor. It would be designed to replace both T4 tempting and MVC scaffolding, and completely abstract and overcome the limitations of wiring with the COM system currently in place. This is desperately needed for MVC to move to the next level.11 votes
We use Favorites in the browser. Actually I use the Links bar for the sites I visit every day. I have the grouped under folders. Visual Studio (and Explorer for that matter) should have this feature as well. I work on solutions with more than 100 projects and hundreds of files. I only work on a subset of them at a time....I'm tired of hunting for stuff.10 votes
Current the publish process from VS for FileSystem is different from the command line.
Because of this if you have customized your .pubxml for a File System publish to execute steps after publish they will not be executed.
We should have parity from command line and VS for FileSystem publish.10 votes
Writing a HTML page with actual content on it (such as a rule sheet for a game) feels cumbersome and slow with having to enter tags manually.
I fully understand the separation between Views and Controllers; but still, these pages are basically HTML and a WYSIWYG designer can make work with these a lot more productive.10 votes
Currently there is a trend back to moving towards having static content being generated during a build process. It would be interesting if either by extension or by a plugin to be able to generate static content using the layout and views during a build.10 votes
I'd like to see a GUI for some MSBuild/Web Publish Target settings like: folder permissions (ACLs), blocking a folder from being overridden (e.g. upload folder containing user files), easy site backup before publish (to a zip file probably), etc.9 votes
Hi Dirk, I think this is a great idea. If you don’t already know the publish profiles are now stored as a part of your project under Properties\PublishProfiles. For this I was thinking that it would be good to have an editor for all the advanced properties if you double click the file.
The only thing that I’m not sure of is how many people would be interested in using this functionality. If we can get a good amount of votes on this item then I can use that to justify the work.
Currently it appears that ScriptResource.axd is minified automatically as long as your not in debug mode. Webresource.axd is not. Can you either automatically minify webresource.axd data in release mode or provide another good mechanism to minify (and compress) it? Right now webresource.axd is some of our biggest resources on our pages.9 votes
It would be great when we could add additional configuration panels (like the Entity Framework Code First Migration features) to the Publish Wizard. This would allow us to add additional steps that can then be configured per target environment.9 votes
Thanks for the request, let’s see how much interest there is for this.
So we upgraded to VS2013 and can no longer run our massive web forms site via IIS. We have to use IIS Express or we cannot debug! What's the point of even having IIS on our systems (which is set up to mirror the live server) if we cannot use it for debugging etc. This seems a really bizarre decision. Note that many of the scenarios of web sites detailed here apply to us http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd547590%28v=vs.100%29.aspx9 votes
When VS detects that a type exists in a file that is named for another type in the same file, present a glyph (ctrl+.) that can be used to move the type to a new file named for that type.8 votes

This is the first customisation I do when I install a VS. I know it's already taken by 'select word' or something equally obscure, but consistency across apps is really really useful. For me it's one of the basics, like ctrl+Z/X/C/V/S/P etc.8 votes
I want to be able to use razor, views and models like this:

I need to be able to do use this in class libraries, not just mvc projects.8 votes
I really like what you guys have done and I'm very impressed. But there are some areas that seem a little confusing to me or could be improved. Can you guys all get together and coordinate to build an enterprise family of .Net WCF Data Tier, Business Logic Tier that will all work together and integrate with the various .Net Presentation Tiers? They should serve as a quick way to get a system running and allow people to add their own POCs, DAL, etc. Every once in a while I get some idea I want to implement, but it takes so long to figure out the .Net framework tool that I've forgotten what my idea was. We need to be able to whip these tiers our with minimum effort.
I recently went to a user group event where I learned that WCF Data Services and WCF RIA Services are similar but overlap. Originally, I thought WCF Data Services was going to utilize EF and together serve as the Data Access Layer. I thought RIA Services was going to serve as the Business Tier that would sit on top of the WCF Data Services. Then I thought we would simply bind MVC, Silverlight controls to RIA Services.
This is how I thought the technologies would sit on top of each other.
Database->WCF Data Services->WCF RIA Services->MVC/Silverlight/WPF/Metro.
Each of the technologies have significant advanages. But when you choose one of the technologies, it seems you have to do significant coding to make up for the short fall. And it's painful because you know that the code you are writing is an availble if you had used the other technology.
It seems such a shame that RIA Services is made for Silverlight and that it takes a lot of work to work with MVC, ASP.Net, Win Forms, WPF, Metro, jQuery, etc. It's also a shame that RIA Services doesn't sit on top of WCF Data Services. Web API should also be able to sit on top of WCF Data Services. Why aren't these technologys hot swapable and utilizing each other and all reinventing the wheel? Isn't that the whole point of having multiple tiers of abstraction? Why can't I decide later to swap out my middle tier and with Azure?
Another tools that should work with these technologies is Light Switch. All the tools should be able to swap in and out seemlessly. We could use Light Switch as the RAD tool, then discover that we need to modify or integrate with other systems and thus expand and/or swap out the tiers as needed. I'd even want to swap out the presentation tiers, such as ASP.Net to MVC or Silverlight to MVC, or Lightswtich to MVC, WPF or Metro, HTML5...
The other issue I have is that if the Schema changes, you have to regenerate the Proxy. I wish there was a better way to keep everything in sync in automatically while in RAD phase, then when you are sure the schema design is stable, you set a configuration flag and lock down the Prox so it isn't always automatically regenerated.

It would be really cool if the BundleResponse class was able to return binary content instead of just text content. This way it would be possible to create image bundles (sprites).7 votes
When editing a style in a css file it would be nice to know if it is overriding another style with same name/id. Check the stylesheets in the solution for the given class/id. Lets say .headeritem exists in a file and now I define it in anoter style in the same solution. Then I would like to know it.7 votes
Brilliant idea. Thanks
- Don't see your idea?
