  1. Allow control of the font when entering text (e.g. Task Description, History) on Visual Studio Online

    When entering text (e.g. Task Description, History) on Visual Studio Online, you have no control of the font. As you copy and paste text from emails, VS or other apps, the source font is preserved. There is no obvious way to change or reset the font. It can make the result hard to read.

    • 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.

      • Refactoring for local URLs in hyperlinks

        VS seems to be the only web site IDE that doesn't refactor HREF links to local pages, when those pages are moved or renamed. I understand this might only be possible for non-server rendered controls or static HTML pages, but why completely ignore the other scenarios? I create thousands of pages of documentation in static HTML for compiled HTML help (CHM files) and am forced to use Dreamweaver.

        • 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.

            • 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

                  Download asp.net downloads Azure SDK and bits - What the heck!
                  The web installer than doesn't have any ability to select subset of items, in my case just asp.net code. Very poor experience.

                        • IDE Visual Studio 2015: Organize the project with mvc areas should be easy.

                          Because VS2015 doesn't show the option "add areas" when I try to customize Tools context menu / add commands.
                          I've been looking for a method to show it but I have not found

                          Is there a procedure ?

                          Thanks.

                                • 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…

                                    ASP.NET Core Essentials
                                    ASP.NET Core and Angular 2
                                    Learning ASP.NET Core MVC Programming

                                    We would appreciate if someone could feature this book on - https://www.asp.net/mvc/books as it is relevant to your user. I think it will help many in their learning of ASP.Net

                                    I can send you an eBook copy for review.

                                    Let me know if…

                                        • RadioButtonList without span html Element

                                          ASP.NET Webform HTML 5 rendering quality. The asp:radiobuttonlist should render without a span element
                                          eg
                                          <asp:RadioButtonList BorderStyle="empty" ID="RadioButtonList3" runat="server" RepeatLayout="Flow" RepeatDirection="Horizontal">

                                          purpose is clean usage with asp.net jquery mobile
