I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. Add a RenderEditorFor helper for performance

    ASP.NET MVC's HTML Helper has both "RenderPartial" and "Partial" - the difference being RenderPartial will write directly to the output stream, but Partial will render to a string, which is then usually written to the output stream.

    ASP.NET MVC also has the handy EditorFor helper which does some templating magic for form fields, however it renders to a string - there is no "RenderEditorFor" which would also write directly to the output stream for increased performance.

    I could reimplement my own helper which does this, but I'd like to see an official implementation.

    • It would be awesome if you had a Gallery for websites built using MVC!

      It would be great if you had a gallery of websites built using MVC so people could see the power of this great tool.

      • Rename ASP.NET core

        ASP.NET core need a rename. it is giving me a headache trying to find resources that is ASP.NET core and not ASP.NET, annoying. the best name is the one that when searched for (at the moment) in any search engine gives zero results or near zero results,thus unique.

        • RemoveOutputCache

          Allow RemoveOutputCache to provide a key, such as VaryByCustom or VaryByHeader strings. SaaS vendors that use subdomains for each tenant, but then also need to cache pages by parameters (URLs, Routes, querystrings, etc.) have no easy way to use page output caching.

          • Razor: self containing attributes in htmlAttributes

            When applying schema.org there are a lot of self containing attributes (attributes without a value).

            for example:

            <li itemprop="itemListElement" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/ListItem">

            Now you have to define htmlattributes like this and add an empty string for value:
            new { @itemprop = "itemListElement", @itemscope = "", @itemtype = "http://schema.org/ListItem&quot; }

            might be an area to improve...

              • Proposal: Replace extension methods with true member functions

                Please refrain from providing more and more extension methods and revert to providing proper ASP.NET class methods.

                Due to the currently overwhelming plethora of extension methods added to core classes it's utterly hard to keep track on which functionality actually is available on an object.

                I can't even remember which NuGet packages I need to download because all the extension methods add to ConfigurationBuilder.

                It would make much more sense to add dedicated objects and namespaces with each Nuget package and to provide proper methods on these objects rather than cluttering up the default namespaces with all kinds of extension…

                • dbgeography better support

                  Support of DBGeography is limited to EF. I tryed to use SQLDatasource and some of classic ASP.NET Webform Data controls and it seems that asp.Parameter have no fitting type. Also direct casting in inserting Event doesnt work. As I have seen also on other places there is *no* Support for the datatype which have been introduced with SQL 2008. As example sql2linq.
                  The point is, to prevent a complete new implementation only for reason to add one db field

                        • make asp.net core more stable

                          I downloaded latest version of everything today, also a getstarted-master project only a few months old and the dotnet restore command does not work. I probably can go back to older version and try to make this work, there is also a tutorial on MVA , just a few months old and also that seems outdated somewhat already. How can you expect people to get familiar and enthusiastic about this platform if these simple things break because of changes to product in such a short time.

                            It would be nice to add ability to render MVC View as String. This will allow to generate emails using strongly typed models.

                                  When a person goes to other websites, they have option of logging in with username OR EMAIL.

                                  Can you make it where a person logs in with username OR EMAIL on

                                  https://login.asp.net/account/login?ReturnUrl=https://www.asp.net/

                                  I kept typing in EMAIL and unable to log in. Of course I thought I had typed in wrong password. ( I have so many passwords like everyone else).

                                      • Project.json should manage compatibility of packages and do not allow to install incompatible packages.

                                        We can install packages in project.json and some time it allow us to install package in system which are not compatible like the current framework do not allow it or somehow we made it then on the runtime we come to know that there is an issue with functionality.
                                        There should be some checks which allow to install package or dependency which are compatible.

                                        • [Bug] Rewrite all controls which depend on javascript "Date" class (like RangeValidator)

                                          I've tried to submit a bug, but got a "You are not authorized to submit the feedback for this connection.". Great! I'm not allowed to submit a bug?.. so here it goes a "suggeston" - RangeValidator automatically creates a javascript function called "function ValidatorConvert(op, dataType, val)", which uses the Date class. At the end of this functions, it checks whether de generated date equals the input date, and when it does not, it returns null. But the behavior of the Date class is not the same across browsers (e.g. its different in ie9 and ie11) when dealing with Daylight saving…
