Announcement: This forum has been replaced by Visual Studio Developer Community to provide you one convenient and responsive system for all feedback. You can now suggest new ideas, browse and vote on existing ideas in the Visual Studio Developer Community.

We’d like your suggestions and ideas to help us continuously improve future releases of ASP.NET, so we’ve partnered with UserVoice, a third-party service, to collect your feedback. Please do not send any novel or patentable ideas, copyrighted materials, samples or demos for which you do not want to grant a license to Microsoft.

This site is for feature suggestions; if you need to file a bug, you can visit our Developer Community website to get started.

We look forward to hearing from you!

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".
(thinking…)

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.

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

  1. When updating project.json by the NuGet package manager the order should be preserved

    When updating packages in project.json by using the NuGet package manager in Visual Studio the order of the dependencies in project.json are changed.

    It would be helpful if the order could be preserved.
    Both when reviewing what has changed and to reduce the risk of merge conflicts when merging project.json files.

  3. WebDeploy parameters support for modifying the “additional provider settings” during deployment time

    This is a follow-up to a question I posted on stackoverflow @ http://stackoverflow.com/questions/15145963/using-msdeploy-parameters-to-set-the-additional-provider-settings-in-a-web-dep

    It is not possible in Web Deploy 3.0 to use parameters to manipulate the "additional provider settings" during deployment time. I have a use case to modify the settings for the dbDacFx provider based on environment, such as "DropObjectsNotInSource" and "BlockOnPossibleDataLoss"

    <sitemanifest>
    <dbDacFx path="C:\Database.dacpac"
    DropObjectsNotInSource="False"
    BlockOnPossibleDataLoss="True" />
    </sitemanifest>

    This is not possible today, likely because the options are stored in a binary format in the attribute "MSDeploy.MSDeployProviderOptions" for the provider in the archive.xml file of the web deploy package. (This binary format appears to be a serialized…

  4. 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.

  5. ConfigureAwait(false) by default

    When you don't need to have full control over your thread pool context while using the async/await pattern, it is recommended that we always use ConfigureAwait(false) for various reasons (see article: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/jj991977.aspx).

    I find that the cases when you need control over the context are very rare.

    I want to suggest that ConfigureAwait(false) is used by default when doing async/await to simplify the coding process.

  7. Provide a true WYSWYG tool

    The show stopper for web development is GUI. Provide a drag drop feature rich true WYSWYG that plays well with major products. The current functionality is horrible. There are countless examples of such functionality on the web.

  9. Angular 2 - Update to rc5, and include the @angular/forms (0.3.0)

    update the aspnetcore-spa for angular 2 to include latest angular rc. Also include new forms. May also need some refactoring to move some of the provider work to modules.

  10. 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…

  11. Separate thing between Visual Studio Asp.Net developers and VS Code Developers

    Separate things between Visual Studio and VS Code Asp.Net Core Developers. Don't mix things up in the same documentation how to do things in VS 2015 and VS Code. We VS developers don't want to care how the other developers do stuff, we want to stay in our VS without opening any other tool or anything.

  14. Step-by-step tutorial: MVC 5 C# + EF (database first) with Dependency Injection

    I have followed the MVC 5 and EF 6 tutorials on MVA, but we need a continuation -- whether it's written or by video. When you auto-scaffold a controller from a model, it "just works" but it's also tightly-coupled. The existing "help" on the topic is fragmented, contradictory, and confusing with a whole lot of "you coulds" that stop just short of being useable for learning. A complete step-by-step from creating the MVC project to "your controller is now loosely-coupled and testable" would be an invaluable learning tool. Before you say, "But there are lots of resources out there," ask…

  16. Asp.Net Core with database first

    It was very easy to work with existing databases in Asp.Net MVC 5, by just adding an Ado.Net Data Entity. Now we don't have this luxury anymore! We must add the models of an existing database by writing commands in the Visual Studio package console, and not having the option to choose with what tables, views, etc from the database we want to work (to get in out projects). Give us this luxury back on visual studio.

  18. 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.

    Make default web apps have a reasonable PageSpeed Insight. Currently a .Net Core Web App gives 69/100 on mobile and 84/100 on desktop, mainly complaining about JQuery and Bootstrap.
