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".

  1. Support for Asp.Net Core running on UWP as Windows IoT Core Background Task

    Currently there is no support for Kestrel on UWP as Windows IoT Core Background Task. As Microsoft is trying to push Windows IoT Core, getting Asp.Net Core to run on that platform would be ideal. It is a real showstopper that there isn't any support for it.

  2. EnableMSDeployAppOffline - AppOfflineTemplate

    For WebDeploy you can specify <EnableMSDeployAppOffline> in the .pubxml file but this will generate a default app_offline.htm file that you cannot modify. Just provide an option for a template like <AppOfflineTemplate>

    Thanks for the suggestion, I’m looking into this. The thought that I have is to do this convention based. So if you have a file named app_offline-template.htm then we use that file for app_offline.htm. Please let me know if that design doesn’t work for you.

  3. Asp.net Core MVC with Razor as Universal Rendering engine

    We can create single page application using Asp.net core and Angular or React. But we don't have something like "zeit/next" for universal rendering. If we can have universal rendering in Asp.net core then it will be the coolest framework for developing web application as it will have power of c# and SEO enabled SPAs, fastest initial rendering, state management using single source of truth, same rendering region on client and server and many more.

    I tried to create simple POC to achieve the above and results was successfull
    https://github.com/vijaytanwar/asp-net-core-univeral-app

    So, It means we can create Universal application using Asp.net core,…

  4. autogenerate bindingRedirects using configSection or fully autogenerate web.config allowing it to be added it to .gitignore

    There are various issues with web.config being committed. For the most part, various configuration which can be automatically generated or depends on external factors currently goes into web.config and the user is required to commit web.config. It would be much easier if it were built and it were possible to place the built web.config or the built portion of the web.config into .gitignore while committing the non-generated portion.

    One common issue with web.config is that any project using it cannot benefit from automatic `<bindingRedirect/>` generation. Binding redirects must be written manually by the user or by VisualStudio when clicking on…

  5. ASP.NET MVC Render View as String

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

  6. Add Aurelia support to Visual Studio templates

    Visual Studio has support for Angular and React when doing File->New, why not add Aurelia in there too?

  8. Please hide all ip address according to GDPR

    Much discussed topic is the IP address. The GDPR states that IP addresses should be considered personal data as it enters the scope of ‘online identifiers’. Of course, in the case of a dynamic IP address – which is changed every time a person connects to a network – there has been some legitimate debate going on as to whether it can truly lead to the identification of a person or not. The conclusion is that the GDPR does consider it as such. The logic behind this decision is relatively simple. The internet service provider (ISP) has a record of…

  10. MVC must have a design view like ASP.net

    If we can have a layout designer view for .chtml files it will be great and time saving. A designer with properties windows and for automatically generating placeholder code to implement actions corresponding to the events. e.g. submit button action, or onClick() events. etc.

  11. Way to hadnle 'DropDownList' has a SelectedValue which is invalid because it does not exist in the list of items.

    In next version of dot net framework please add a way to suppress this message. In MVC if no item is found it selects the first item here it should do the same.

  12. Microsoft.AspNet.Mvc package to support PackageReference

    With regard to:

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/nuget/reference/migrate-packages-config-to-package-reference

    https://blog.nuget.org/20180409/migrate-packages-config-to-package-reference.html,

    The NuGet package Microsoft.AspNet.Mvc (and associated ones) give this error when trying to upgrade to PackageReference:

    "content" assets are not available when the package is installed after the migration

    This prevents a full-framework ASP MVC application from successfully consuming .NET Standard NuGet oackages.

  13. login with email instead

    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).

  20. incomplete/unanswered threads marked resolved

    this is for the asp.net website.
    i too often see threads with incorrect/incomplete answers marked as resolved and cannot have the correct answer posted because thread is locked. asp.net website cannot be taken as a serious resource for answers, that is a shame. as its domain name and direct affiliation with microsoft should mean its an authority for the best answers.
