Universal Windows Platform

Welcome to the Universal Windows Platform Developer Feedback site. This site provides the Windows developer community with a channel for feedback on the following topics:

  • Windows developer platform (APIs, runtimes, and controls)
  • Dev Center (dashboard, reporting/analytics, submission process, etc.)
  • Microsoft Store

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

What this forum is not intended to cover or capture:

  • Windows consumer suggestions: Use the Windows Feedback Hub app built directly into Windows 10
  • Documentation on docs.microsoft.com: Sign in at the bottom of the page to give documentation feedback via Github
  • Visual Studio / .NET: Use the Visual Studio UserVoice site

If you’re new to UserVoice, two things to keep in mind are (a) List items (and item rankings) represent community interest in features, and not the 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 (or if too many different ideas are included in one suggestion).

How can we improve the Windows dev platform?

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

    • KeyboardSelection in Selectors (ListBox, ComboBox, ListView, GridView)

      Keyboard selection in Selectors (ListBox, ComboBox, ListView, GridView) for UWP apps doesn't really work.

      I came up with a solution for this using a KeyboardSelectionBehavior, Have a look at:
      WinRT: https://reflectionit.nl/Blog/2013/windows-8-xaml-tips-creating-blend-behaviors
      Silverlight: https://www.reflectionit.nl/blog/2010/keyboard-selection-on-silverlight-listbox-and-combobox

      I think this could also be useful for the toolkit. I'm not sure if it should be a Behavior or an AttachedProperty.

      • Circular flipview control with position indicators

        A flipview like behavior that has position indicator on the bottom and changing items is infinite and circular. Swiping from the last item woudl change to the first item and the position idicator will chane to the first as well. Just like a carousel that is found on different web UIs.

          • Infinite Canvas Export Image

            The infinite canvas control doesn't have (that I could find) a way to export the ink as an image (PNG, JPG, GIF, etc).

            The raw InkCanvas control underneath has ways using the StrokeContainer, but those are both private and unaccessable.

            So can we have either a way to export, or can the underlying (my preference) InkCanvas be exposed as public?

            Thanks!

            Rob.

            • Bring waslibs controls/services to community toolkit

              Would be really nice to have everything in a single place, so why not bring all the rest of controls/services/helpers from https://github.com/wasteam/waslibs to windows community toolkit? :)

              • Add ComboBoxColumn for DataGrid

                Most DataGrids have readily available ComboBoxColumn where data can be changed to a value from a given collection. In view mode it looks like the normal TextColumn, and in edit mode the ComboBox appears.

                While it is possible to achieve this with the TemplateColumn having a ComboBoxColumn would be more convenient.

                • Make DataGrid bind to DataTable with AutoGenerateColumns="True"

                  It seems like DataGrid can't bind its ItemsSource to a DataTable in .xaml code.

                  I think this would be a nice feature when working with dynamic data.

                  With AutoGenerateColumns="True" it should be able to create columns as well automatically.

                  • Add click event for row- Datagrid

                    Please add a click event for row in datagrid.
                    The selection changed event does not work when is necessary to open a new page.
                    Because to select the same row is necessary select another row and then re-select the previous row.

                    • print page sizes

                      Within UWP - The ability to manually and fully configure the page size output. Not use the ENUM mediapagesize, but something like WinForms where the specific page size can be selected.

                      • Add official Acrylic API for WPF apps

                        It is currently officially impossible to display the acrylic window-background effect in a non-UWP window. Several developers have managed to coax out the private API used to implement this feature in a desktop app (see <https://withinrafael.com/2018/02/01/adding-acrylic-blur-to-your-windows-10-apps-redstone-4-desktop-apps/>); however this API is officially unsupported, can change at any time, and has been changed in a backwards-incompatible manner once in the past.

                        Would it be too much to ask for an API that wraps whatever mechanism is required to accomplish this? Using the UWP acrylic API in a XAML Island won't quite work for me, as I want to place WPF…

                            • In MarkdownTextBlock, get an array of the positions of a search string relative to the start of the control text.

                              To enable scrolling to a relative link within a markdown document, we need a way to get the position of the text we want to display relative to the start of the markdown text (where start is 0,0). This way we can programmatically scroll a ScrollView to the text we want to display.

                              • 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' />

                                  • Enable hooks to supply own Segoe MDL2 Asset value for back and forward buttons on TabView

                                    The TabView uses 2 RepeatButtons for the back and forward actions when size is to big to fit in current host container.
                                    Would be nice if we could supply our own Segoe MDL2 asset values for those buttons on the TabView control, so that we do not need to override the ScrollView style supplied with the toolkit.

                                    • Add Support for Incremental Loading with the DataGrid

                                      As far as I can tell, the DataGrid does not support incremental loading.

                                      Working with big datasets and remote databases this is an essential feature.

                                      • 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…

                                        • 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.
