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. Alarm volume settings

    Hello,
    it would be great if user and dev could modify alarm volume. I know you have tweaked alarm volume in Insider builds, but you simply cannot cover all user need if you don't provide them the slider. Many users still complains about given volume, even fade in doesn't save the situation.

    The best it would be if also dev could set volume granularly on each Toast notification. User might want lower volume for morning alarms and louder volume for alarm used during busy day.

    That would make all the users happy :)

    Thanks!

    • Add a Toolbar to UWP

      In UWP we have a CommandBar, but it seems it's not easy to use to build a classic toolbar for a desktop application. A toolbar stacks items from left-to-right, and it would be great to have such a toolbar in UWP like we have it today in WPF and several other desktop programming models

          • Remove Search Restrictions

            Remove the 50 apps limit from the phone and 100 app limit from the marketplace web site when users search for an app with a search term. If an app can not be found with its ideal keyword (becuase over a hundred apps already have used that search term) then new apps cannot be found with their ideal search terms. The concept of paging using skip and take very easily resolves this issue. It's quite dissapointing that a Bible app cannot be found with the search term bible.

              • Add support to disable the "bounce" in the WebBrowser control

                Currently, there doesn't seem to be any possibility to disable the "bounce" effect when scrolling inside the WebBrowser control which makes any apps based in HTML5 look and feel cheap. This happens when you try to scroll beyond the bounds of the control and there is the elastic effect which allows you to move the page beyond the border of the control. Would it be possible to disable this?

                          • [Bug] - ListBox.ScrollIntoView doesn't work properly

                            If a ListBox has elements with different sizes and you call ScrollIntoView to the last Item, the ScrollViewer doesn't scroll to correct position.

                            You can reproduce it adding rectangles with 100px, 200px and 300px of height and calling ScrollIntoView to the last item.

                              • Let an app know if it's pinned

                                At the moment there's no way for an app to know if its primary live tile is visible or not. As half the point of my app is the information on the live tile, I'd like to have a polite reminder show every so often if they haven't pinned it, but I simply don't know whether they have or not.

                                • Add $0.49 IAP price point

                                  I think that having and IAP price point of $0.49 could be wildly attractive to end users and get more purchases for developers. Having $0.99 as the bottom for things like ad removal, when many *full apps* cost $0.99 can sometimes be a tough sell.

                                  • SSL/TLS support for StreamSocketListener

                                    It's impossible with a Universal App to accept SSL connections for TCP streams. This makes authenticating remote connections impossible. I'm running an extremely basic web server from my app to allow people to remotely control the app over wifi from a browser. This is possible through the StreamSocketListener but I can't encrypt it.

                                        There is a serious bug in CRT (ucrtbase) which is part of Windows 10.
                                        The long story (please read it, since it contains all information about this bug): https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/PY-17069#comment=27-1803709

                                        The short story:
                                        _wspawnve is broken when launched from Explorer (not cmd) because ``cenvarg.cpp`` expects undocumented environment variable ``=C`` (covered here: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/oldnewthing/20100506-00/?p=14133) and this variable is not provided by Explorer.

                                        Tool to reproduce.

                                        ```
                                        #include<process.h>
                                        // Works from cmd.exe, but not from Explorer on Win10 :)
                                        void main() {
                                        const wchar_t* const args[] = {L"c:\\windows\\system32\\cmd.exe", L"/?", NULL};
                                        const wchar_t* const envs[] = { L"FOO=BAR", NULL};
                                        int r;

                                        _wspawnve(P_WAIT, L"c:\\windows\\system32\\cmd.exe", args,…

                                        • Put a HierarchicalDataTemplate into the Platform

                                          You're building on a TreeView-control, as your backlog on https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/platform shows. I'm using the TreeView of your official samples on https://github.com/Microsoft/Windows-universal-samples/tree/dev/Samples/XamlTreeView. The point that I really miss when working with hierarchical data is the HierarchicalDataTemplate like we have it today in WPF. So I suggest that you bring the HierarchicalDataTemplate to UWP. It makes especially sense when you release a control for hierarchical data like the TreeView.
