Universal Windows Platform

Welcome to the Windows Platform Developer (WPDev) Feedback site. This feedback forum provides the WPDev community with a channel for feedback on the following topics:

  • Windows developer platform (APIs, runtimes, and controls)
  • Dev Center Store (developer portal, back-end services, reporting/analytics and process)
  • Windows Stores (Windows and Windows Phone)

Your suggestions will be reviewed by the Windows platform developer team, providing feedback to help with planning ideas and to better understand how developers are using the development platform.

What this forum is not intended to cover or capture:

If you’re new to this whole UserVoice thing, we’d like to note two important things about this site: (a) List items (and item rankings) represent community interest in features, and does not represent an actual priority list for the product team; and (b) Suggestions made using this forum will be moderated if they do not actually represent a feature request.

How can we improve the Windows dev platform?

  1. CalcBinding for UWP

    CalcBinding is an advanced Binding markup extension that allows you to write calculated binding expressions in XAML, without custom converters. CalcBinding can automatically perform bool to visibility conversion, inverse your expression and more. CalcBinding makes binding expressions shorter and more user-friendly.

    This is only available for WPF - https://github.com/Alex141/CalcBinding

    Here are some examples

    <Label Content="{c:Binding A+B+C }" />

    <Label Content="{c:Binding A*0.5+(B.NestedProp1/C - B.NestedProp2 % C) }" />

    <Button Background="{c:Binding '(A > B ? media:Brushes.LightBlue : media:Brushes.White)'}"/>

    <TextBox Text="{c:Binding 'Math.Sin(Math.Cos(A))'}"/>

    <Button Visibility="{c:Binding !IsChecked}" />

    <c:Binding 'A and B or C' />

    • Add WPF UniformGrid to UWP

      The WPF UniformGrid (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.windows.controls.primitives.uniformgrid(v=vs.110).aspx) is missing in UWP. It doesn't seem to quite have an equivalent in UWP in order to get even spacing of a grid automatically, as well as other features like setting rows/columns and first column for calendar type applications.

      • Use ContentPresenter in MasterDetailsView instead of ListView

        Currently, In MasterView, we can only use ListView. It limits the use case of MasterView. We can't use Pivot, Semantic Zoom, GridView, PullToRefresh, SlidableListItem and more. But if it accepts ContentPresenter then the limit would be endless.

        Don't fake the page navigation using Storyboard. Then devs can use Connected Animations.

        • Grouped ComboBox

          In WPF we had the possibility to have groups within the ComboBox list. We now have this option for ListView and GridView, but not for the ComboBox control.

          For example:

          - Fruits (group name)
          -- Banana (item name)
          -- Apple (item name)
          -- Orange (item name)

          - Vegetables (group name)
          -- Carrot (item name)
          -- Cucumber (item name)

          WPF example:
          https://user-images.githubusercontent.com/9866362/30957493-b5719ff8-a43a-11e7-9c46-043f5a3404b8.jpg

          • Add custom CalendarView control

            Add a custom CalendarView control with more personalization options than the one included in the SDK.

            List of features:
            - Individual CalendarMonthView control, so that if you want to display standalone months, you can (maybe you display a grid of 4 months, etc)
            - CalendarView control that consumes the CalendarMonthView
            - CalendarView supports swiping up/down to switch months
            - CalendarView supports arrows that appear when hovered allowing mouse users to switch months
            - CalendarView supports mouse scroll to switch months
            - CalendarView supports adding buttons/elements that stay fixed while scrolling (like a Go To Today button)
            - CalendarMonthView allows custom…

            • Control to create an App Tour Guide

              Control explanation: This control should cover the entire app with a semi-transparent background except the highlighted UIElement so that the user can interact with the UIElement. In short, we need a UWP alternative to ShowcaseView (https://github.com/amlcurran/ShowcaseView)

              Use of the control: This control will help the user to take a tour of the app in an interactive way.

                • Middle click scrolling

                  Middle click scrolling is a default feature that is expected by the users. But it is not available by default.

                  It would be nice to have an attached property for ScrollViewer to set middle click scrolling.

                  • Numeric TextBox with min and max value and decimal place and comma formatting

                    I know that text boxes can be customized easily. But the UWP textboxes are not that god when it comes to numeric input. I'm currently working on a software that has a lot of numeric input. That's why I'm suggesting a specialized textbox for numbers.

                    I'm suggesting a textbox with the following feature:
                    1. Only allows numeric input
                    2. Allow entering negative values
                    3. Allow entering decimal values
                    4. Format the text with a specific number of decimal place (i.e. 1.456 -> 1.46)
                    5. Format numbers with commas on thousands (i.e. 1,000,000.00) on mouse leave and remove commas when editing. …

                      • New Helper for Downloading from the web

                        Downloading from the web is a very common thing to do in Apps but it doesn't have any dedicated control for it. So it would be nice to have one.

                        Feature request for this control:

                        1. Download.URI(URI) should set the item to be Download
                        2. Download.GetInfo.Name, Download.GetInfo.Size, ... to get the Info about the item to be Downloaded
                        3. Download.Start, Download.Pause, Download.Stop
                        4. Download.GetPercentage to get the download compleated percentage so that it can be used for creating ProgessBar
                        5. Download.GetSpeed to get the download speed
                        6. Should support Background Download

                                • Create a Custom RichEditBox with all the basic features Like Text Formatting, Support for Inking Like OneNote

                                  It is very difficult to Create a Custom RichEditBox with all the basic features Like Text Formatting, Bullets and numbering, Support for Inking Like OneNote and also to support adaptive layout, that's too much work for basic Text editing. So my opinion is to create two new controls. One is TextCanvas for Display and Editing both Text and Inking. The other is TextCanvasToolbar for Text Formating and Ink editing.

                                  • Chat control functionality for ListView

                                    The main impediments when creating a Chat-like control using a ListView is that we don't have a native way to handle incrementalLoading at the top of list.

                                    There is already an example we can reuse in UWP samples https://github.com/Microsoft/Windows-universal-samples/tree/master/Samples/XamlBottomUpList

                                    We already have the PullToRefreshListView in the toolkit, so we can also integrate this functionality into the control and change the name to something more suitable like ListViewEx and have both of the functionality in a single control.

                                    • UWP Community Toolkit Orbit View

                                      Orbit View Currently have 2D plane so for Mixed Reality Apps third Dimension needed to expand it functionality.
                                      Like for example for Space apps where Earth have satellites, NEO and space stations and they all have orbits based on earth so orbital view in 3D make it better in Mixed reality

                                      • Extended Adaptive GridView

                                        I have some more feature recommendations, regarding extensions in adaptivegridview if you will.

                                        Search bar : a top search bar attached to the control which can be enabled/disabled with a boolean property. this search bar auto filters the items on basis of the filterDescriptor provided ( filter descriptor can be defined by the developer, tht which string,time,int property to match with which condition i.e : Contains, startswith, endswith e.t.c. and which operator to use [AND/OR] in case of multiple property filter provided.)

                                        Grouping : another optional feature to enable grouping on basis of a string property of the items. and…

                                        • Add WordPress Service support

                                          Currently UWP Community Toolkit includes seven services that are very useful but more is always better, it would be awesome to add more and more services, including a big one for a lot of people, WordPress.
                                          Could this be posible?
