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?

    • 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.

      • 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.

        • 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.

            • 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.

              • 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.

                • 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' />

                  • radialgauge ValueChanged

                    The RadialGauge control needs a ValueChanged event to enable apps to tie to it and become more event-driven.

                      • 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.

                          • 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.

                                • Delete Ink by point control

                                  Have you experienced the stroke deletion using the standard InkCanvas/InkTollbar against the ink deletion experience on the Sketchpad app?
                                  The Sketchpad app give you a way more natural to delete strokes because it allows you to delete ink by single point, like an eraser on the real life.
                                  At the moment the UWP APIs does not expose such a way of erasing strokes, you can only erase the whole stroke, and in order to achieve the ink deletion by point there is a lot of code to write as well as having the appropriate know how.
                                  What do you think…

                                  • ScatterView control to support the SurfaceHub / multiuser development

                                    As discussed here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e8qTD5g14ks with Nikola Metulev the UX of a UWP app running on a multi-user / multi-touch device, to empower the possibility of the device itself shall be designed the way that several user can interact with the device at the same time.
                                    The scatter-view idea is just the concept already applied to surface v1 and v2 tables to uwp.
                                    With the upcoming Surface Hub 2s, 2x and the windows 10 collaborative displays coming i believe is time for the ScatterView to be merged into the Windows Community Toolkit.
                                    Please upvote if you see the need of such…

                                    • OnDevice MarkupExtension

                                      Maybe I could add my OnDevice MarkupExtension to the toolkit. It can be used for DeviceFamily specific property values. It is inspired on the OnPlatform/OnIdiom markup extensions from Xamarin.Forms 3.2

                                      <TextBlock Text="{wme:OnDevice Desktop=Hello, Xbox=World}"
                                      FontSize="{wme:OnDevice Team=42, IoT=60, Default=21}"
                                      HorizontalAlignment="Center"
                                      VerticalAlignment="Center"/>

                                      • Builders for ToastContent and TileContent

                                        Current way of initializing ToastContent and TileContent requires multiple lines of inline-initialization which will make the code messy really fast. Also, the classes that are used for ToastContent don't have good documentations and constructors (usually require user looking up examples for which properties to set).

                                        Proposing creating builders class using Fluent Interfaces/Method Chaining pattern to ease the operation of creating a ToastContent/TileContent for faster development of supporting Toast Notification / Tile pinning.
