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. 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

    • Create a Custom RichEditBox with all the basic features Like Text Formatting, Support for Inking Like OneNote

      It is very difficult to Create a Custom RichEditBox with all the basic features Like Text Formatting, Bullets and numbering, Support for Inking Like OneNote and also to support adaptive layout, that's too much work for basic Text editing. So my opinion is to create two new controls. One is TextCanvas for Display and Editing both Text and Inking. The other is TextCanvasToolbar for Text Formating and Ink editing.

        • Chat control functionality for ListView

          The main impediments when creating a Chat-like control using a ListView is that we don't have a native way to handle incrementalLoading at the top of list.

          There is already an example we can reuse in UWP samples https://github.com/Microsoft/Windows-universal-samples/tree/master/Samples/XamlBottomUpList

          We already have the PullToRefreshListView in the toolkit, so we can also integrate this functionality into the control and change the name to something more suitable like ListViewEx and have both of the functionality in a single control.

          • Create a control for 'Continue in different device'

            Create a control for Continue in different device Like Continue Reading etc. Microsoft wants us to build more connected app with Project Rome API. So it would be nice to create controls to achieve Microsoft's vision easily.
            For Reference
            I like the way MSPoweruser app has implemented this feature. In that app If we click Continue Reading button, it will show all the devices connected to this device. So if I click on a device it will open the app on that device with the same artice.

            • Add PullToRefresh to MasterDetailsView 'Master Panel'

              Master Panel in MasterDetailsView was intended to be used as PullToRefreshListView because usually, the ListView in Master Panel is dynamically changing, It is often used for showing Collections of Emails, Articles, etc. So why not include EnablePullToRefresh as a property of MasterDetailsView. It would save the user a lot of time and effort.

                • Horizontal ListView with Next and Previous Buttons

                  I am suggesting a new control with following features.

                  1. a type of Horizontal one row ListView/GridView.
                  2. Only Horizontal Scrolling available because its one row only
                  3. Scrolling/Navigation Buttons, on right side next button on left side of the control will be a previous button.

                  Next/Previous Behaviour : the available screen will show the max number of items in the row of the control according to size of the control and size of the items in it. When the user will press button for next items, then items will scroll and next set of items will appear on the…

                    • HeaderedContentControl

                      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

                        • Cortana Extensions

                          A way to create the Voice Command Definition (VCD.xml) for Cortana using C#. Currently here: https://github.com/WilliamABradley/CortanaExtensions
                          It was inspired by NotificationExtensions, where you can create the Cortana VCD.xml using C# instead of figuring out how to define the XML yourself.
                          This can be really helpful if you want to easily create a Multi-Lingual Cortana Experience, if you use RESW. As well as a RESW File Code Generator (Or RESX), and a tool like the MultiLingual Toolkit.

                            This is a Helper to ensure Safe handling of Content Dialogs, This will help prevent exceptions from trying to open a Content Dialog, when one is already open.

                            Methods involve Async and Non Async opening (If you want the result or not), These methods have a Boolean that lets you specify whether you want to wait for the Dialog before it to close before showing it, so you can show break through Dialogs, such as Error or Password Prompts. As well as a return Method, that allows you to return to the Dialog before it, after the new Dialog has…

                                Presently, one cannot print in UWP without invoking the print dialog. This hinders automation in the creation of PDFs. Why not allow the creation of PDFs without print dialog interaction?

                                • TimeSpanPicker control

                                  Both TimePicker and TimePickerFlyout support Hour and Minute and Period (AM / PM) selection. However second selection is often very useful and needed.

                                  A control that offers hour, minute & second selection would be helpful.

                                  • [PullToRefresh] Add support for RefreshIndicator to stay visible after invoking until refresh task is complete

                                    The PullToRefreshList, as now, does not keep the Refresh indicator open while the task do get more data is running.

                                    Expected behavior:

                                    After releasing to refresh the list should animate back to top (as a simple list do) and while awaitng for the data to be fetched the Refresh indicator content should be visible or have a property to control its visibility (i would prefer this one)

                                    Effective result:

                                    After releasing the pointer or finger the list abruptly return to position 0 and the refresh indicator is hidden

                                        Hey this is a good feedback. Can you tell us if you see it as an attached property (like IsRequired=“true”) ?

                                      • I want to drap items from one treeview to another treeview. I want to use this control TreeView from this link https:/

                                        I want to drap items from one treeview to another treeview. I want to use this control TreeView from this link https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/uwp/controls-and-patterns/tree-view. Whenever i drag control from one treeview to another treeview it throws exception. How to use this control as drag and drop item between treeviews.

                                        • 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.
