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".

  1. 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,…

      • 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.

        • 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.

          • 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).

                        • 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.

                          • 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.

                              • 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.

                                • Incorporate "Fluent Design" controls into ASP.NET Web Apps

                                  Current web apps require a significant amount of customization to make them look modern. Imitating the functionality of the new WIndows 10 apps should be built into ASP.NET. Expensive products like Telerik are flourishing from this shortcoming. With the introduction of more fluently designed Windows apps, it would be helpful to give developers the tools to design apps like those in the demos.

                                      • Problem in Auto succession in Visual Studio 2015 Frame work 4.6

                                        In visual studio 2015, I have created one project using ASP.NET Web Forms site. In this project all pages has no extension (.aspx is not showing) due to this result Auto succession is not working (showing lengthy docs type). When I change it in frame work 4 then it is working.
                                        So please help me out this problem.

                                        • web.config conditional compilation constants

                                          Please add the ability to specify conditional compilation constants easily in the web.config for a file system based web site. A simple declaration in the <system.web><compilation> directive would be ideal.

                                          You can work around with <system.codedom><compilers> directives, but many shared hosting environments generally do not let you install your own compiler, so this should be something that you can specify without requiring these directives.
