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. Make VariableSizedWrapGrid Virtualizing.

    Currently only VirtualizingStackpanels can virtualice and reuse datatemplates , decreasing a lot the memory footprint. If we use diferent datatemplates, why not make every panel virtualizable?

    • C# UWP app: exception.StackTrace should include full stacktrace

      When an error occurs it happens a lot that exception.StackTrace is null (in the App UnhandledException handler for instance).
      This is in fact documented and the offical recommendation is to try/catch closer to the code (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/windows.ui.xaml.application.unhandledexception).
      The problem is we can't put try/catch everywhere and we would like to understand crashes but without a stacktrace it is difficult.

      • Callback for all tasks and launchers

        Would be nice to have a callback on for example the phonecalltask so that we can determine wether or not the user actually did press "call" or "cancel". Same for other tasks and launchers.

          • Certificate Manager

            we have installed some certificates from sbs exchange-servers. some certificates was wrong. at the current release there are no possibility to see or delete the certificates, which were installed at the phone. we think, that an certificate manager would resolve the problem.

              • Launch app from market

                When searching in the market you should be able to open the app if already installed.

                • Define InputScope on PasswordBox in WinRT

                  I want to use PasswordBox for passcodes input. The whole point of a passcode is that the input is quick. To this end, the number pad should be immediately open and ready for use.

                    • Allow Microsoft Visual C++ support for accessing Microsoft.Phone.Info.DeviceStatus available in C#

                      Currently, Microsoft.Phone.Info.DeviceStatus is available to know the device manufacturer and it is only accesible from C# project making it a round way about to include this project in C++ ( managed code). It would be helpful if we have an equivalent API available in C++.

                      • Get a New TV Advertising company for UK

                        I'm betting on WP7 growing in 2012 - U need to do a MUCH better 'Job' on the TV advertising - I saw the start of the TV advert and said to myself 'Please don't let this be the new WP7 ad ' and sure as heck it was. My friends know I'm developing for WP7 and the current stuff is embarrasing. Get that Brandon bloke back !

                        • HTML5 Video Element And Live Streaming

                          We use Microsoft Expression Encoder to do live, smooth streaming, video feeds.
                          I was surprised to find that the, built-in, media player doesn't support the HTML5 video element and live streaming.

                          <video src="http://mlmidev.webcastcenter.com/mlm/idev.isml/manifest(format=m3u8-aapl).m3u8"></video>

                          It works on iOS, Android 3+, and Apple computers with Safari.
                          Since this is a Microsoft technology (or, at least, I thought it was), I figured it would work wonderfully on Window Phone 8.

                          I can use a Silverlight player program (BitGravity Player is what I'm currently using), but it requires me to type an address in.
                          It's just one area that I can't recommend…

                            • 日本語IMEフリック時のポップアップを出す位置を変えてほしい

                              今のIMEはフリックの対象が指に隠れてしまうので、文字を打ちづらい。そのせいでせっかくのカーブドフリックも生かされていない。
                              候補をポップアップする位置をずらすことができれば、もっと文字を打ちやすくなるはず。

                              • ホーム画面におけるラベル作成、およびラベルジャンプがOS標準で行えるようにしたい

                                今現状、WP7はタイルは分類もできなければ、他の方がアイデアを出している
                                ショートカットグループの為のタイルも作成は出来ません。
                                多くのタイルを置くと混乱、あるいは効率性の低下をもたらす為
                                タイルを少なく個人で選定し並べる以外にまとめる方法が存在しませんでした。

                                この現状において、エバンジェリストの高橋氏が「Tile Label」を作成しました。
                                このアプリにおいてラベルを作成し視覚的な分類は可能となりました。

                                この発想は自分は非常に有効な手法であると思った上で、
                                この発想を一歩前進させて、そのラベルへのジャンプも可能にしたら
                                視覚的な分類と、操作性としての効率が向上出来ると考えましたが、
                                しかし現状は仕様上不可能であると高橋氏よりご回答をいただきました。

                                それなら、ラベル作成およびラベルジャンプをOSレベルで利用できるよう
                                改善して欲しいと思ったので、本提案をさせて頂きます。

                                ショートカットグループに比べての本提案の利点は
                                全アプリ一覧でのイニシャルジャンプと、設計思想上共通する為
                                一貫性を持つことが出来ると共に、WP7のシンプル性を損なわないと
                                思ったからです。
                                これが可能になればmetro UIの利便性は非常に向上すると思います。

                                是非とも御対応よろしく御願いします。

                                • メール返信の際に、元のメッセージを消せるようにしてほしい

                                  アプリ開発とは趣旨が違うかもですが・・・。
                                  WP7上からメールの返信をすると、元のメッセージが必ず付加されます。
                                  仕事でやり取りするようなメールならいいですが、プライベートなメールのときは、正直邪魔です。
                                  テキスト形式メールのように編集を可能にするか、いっそ元のメッセージを付けなくするようなオプションが欲しいです。

                                    • HttpClient: Allow inspection of server certificate during SSL handshake

                                      Right now, we can only inspect the server certificate after a request was done, by using 'RequestMessage.TransportInformation'.

                                      Because of this, it is not possible to have a decent implementation of SSL pinning using the HttpClient (or any other method without rebuilding the entire networking stack), The request should not actually take place if the certificate validation fails.

                                      It is possible to install allowed certificates through the Package.appxmanifest file and then checking Exclusive trust. But unfortunately, this is application wide, and so all certificates of all services of websites that might be called in the app must be included.

                                        • Please provide ETW logging from a windows phone 8 app.

                                          Please expose ETW logging namespaces like System.Diagnostics.Eventing so that it is possible to log events from the windows 8 app.
