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?

    • [Bug] UWP MenuFlyoutPresenter displayed with wrong background brush when placed in CommandBar.SecondaryCommands in Page.TopAppBar

      In UWP, when a MenuFlyout control is placed within a CommandBar inside the Page.TopAppBar (or BottomAppBar), in Light theme the MenuFlyoutPresenter has the incorrect background color.

      To recreate, paste the below XAML into a blank page and run (be sure the app is configured to use Dark theme). The CommandBar in the Page body works as expected. The CommandBar in the Page.TopAppBar has a dark MenuFlyoutPresenter Background brush.

      A pseudo-fix is demonstrated with the third CommandBar in the BottomAppBar: if the CommandBar.RequestedTheme property is explicity set to Light, the MenuFlyoutPresenter will have a grayish background that isn't ideal but makes…

      • [Bug?] MapControl: Altitude changes when setting Center regardless of AltitudeReferenceSystem

        When I set Center with property or with TrySetViewAsync, map changes altitude based on height of the object below

        Example: Map is centered on ground, I move it to building and altitude jumps to building's height

        I tried all of AltitudeReferenceSystem values and they all produce the same result

        Also I can't get a full 2D map which is what I desire but no matter what I do the buildings are 3D

        • Access Payout Summary for Apps via API

          The Windows Store analytics API allows great access to acquisition data (both app and add-on acquisitions).

          However, being able to tie this data with revenue data is limited as transaction data can only be downloaded by CSV through the Payout Summary page.

          Accessing this information through an API would be useful for creating automated KPI reports.

          • Improve Windows Dev Center performance for Edge

            The site Windows Dev Center (https://developer.microsoft.com) is *very* slow when navigating with Edge. We are talking page load times of several minutes in many cases. I have done troubleshooting with Windows developer support who knew about the issue and recommended using another browser, like IE.

            The site is faster in Chrome and IE, but still not fast and gives a poor user experience due to the lack of performance.

            As a Windows developer I would like the site to be improved to give a reasonable performance. Currently it is at risk of giving the impression of being neglected…

            • Add a signature control

              This is a control that I use quite frequently in my LoB applications which I can see being something that is used across other applications.

              I have an implementation that I'm more than happy to provide.

              • Add FadeAnimationDuration to ImageEx

                I saw that ImageEx's fade animation doesn't allow developers to change duration and fixed to one second.

                It'd be great to add that feature since not all developers want a transition that long and to be honest, it makes the app look slower.

                For example, FadeAnimationDuration = "0:0:0.33"

                • Developer Portal acquisitions funnel is not drawn correctly

                  The Acquisitions Funnel in the new Windows Developer Center dashboard is cool, but the rectangular bars representing each stage of the funnel are incorrect. For example, I have a 25% conversion rate between Store page views and downloads, but the second bar is only 5% the width of the first bar (should be ~25%).

                        Please add HeaderedContentControl to the community toolkit. It is just few lines of code, but useful, since content with some header is present everywhere in the UI. More reasoning about it here: https://github.com/Microsoft/UWPCommunityToolkit/issues/995

                          • 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

                              • Add ECDH crypto

                                I'm looking to use ECDH key agreement in an universal windows app, but I can't find a way to do so. 
                                I have previously used the desktop NCryptCreatePersistedKey with NCRYPT_ECDH_P256_ALGORITHM, followed by
                                NCryptSecretAgreement.

                                I would have expected that this would be the way to start, but there is no ECDH possible in https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/windows.security.cryptography.core.asymmetricalgorithmnames

                                AsymmetricKeyAlgorithmProvider prov = AsymmetricKeyAlgorithmProvider.OpenAlgorithm(strAsymmetricAlgName);
                                String strAlgName = objAlgProv.AlgorithmName;
                                CryptographicKey keyPair = prov.CreateKeyPair(keyLength);

                                I'm looking to use ECDH key agreement in an universal windows app, but I can't find a way to do so. 
                                (Note that this is not ECDSA; the use of elliptic curve keys in a signature mode)

                                  • Potential bug in ObservableCollection when adding list of items

                                    We have implemented a FastObservableCollection (see https://github.com/Catel/Catel/blob/8e11fda46dccb487787dc955a79b194c26ac15e0/src/Catel.MVVM/Catel.MVVM.Shared/Collections/FastObservableCollection.cs#L438)

                                    When adding (or removing) a lot of items, we suspend the events and will raise a *single* event for all the items that were changed during the suspension period. This makes the collection much faster to work with when making large changes.

                                    Before recent changes, we were (ab)using the .Reset event type to inform the UI components that the collection has changed. In the current version, we have optimized the collection so it knows *exactly* what has changed in the suspension state. We will only invoke the correct Add / Remove actions…

                                    • Allow UWP apps without .NET Native

                                      In 2017, .NET Native is still not mature and still has bugs. But for UWP apps to be published in the App Store, you must use .NET Native. Interestingly, Apps wrapped with Desktop Bridge do not have to use .NET Native. So, please allow UWP apps without .NET Native! (This would automatically enable us to write apps in F#, too, as a side effect).

                                      • Add effects to InterstitialAd when it shows.

                                        I wish the InterstitialAd will have built-in animation, at least a fade-in effect when it shows.

                                        • Allow to submit own IRadialController implementation instead of using HID injection driver

                                          I would like to create my own Windows Wheel implementation for an existing bluetooth device that sends events over the BLE GATT protocol (not HID).
                                          I know it is possible to use something like https://github.com/ms-iot/samples/tree/develop/HIDInjector, but having to write c++ code for Bluetooth is holding me back. I would much rather write some UWP-like background application in C# that injects RadialController events.
