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. 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.

    • Open Services library to Xamarin

      The Microsoft.Toolkit.Uwp.Services project should also be usable in a Xamarin environment.

        Excellent feedback. We are not working on supporting Xamarin for now but if this suggestion get a lot of traction we can update our priorities

      • In-app notifications

        It would be great if something like this ( https://github.com/RavinduL/LocalNotifications ) was included in the toolkit. There is a guideline somewhere about not using toast notifications while your app is in the foreground.

        More details and the full discussion about this can be found here: https://github.com/Microsoft/UWPCommunityToolkit/issues/1080

        • 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.

          • Frosted Glass

            Add Frosted Glass effect by providing a control similar to DropShadow control. The Frosted Glass is an effect applied on a container layer (Grid, Panel, Canvas) with a beautiful blur/transparency effect (like the Start Menu or the Action Center in Windows 10 Desktop).

            • I want a ContentControl that has pull-to-refresh capability

              It's great to have a PullToRefresh control based on a ListView control but what about when your page has more than just a single ListView? As in, you have a lot of UI that composes the page in addition to a list control. Or what if you want this for a GridView? It would be super useful to have a PullToRefresh control based on content control so you can put whatever you want into the body and still have pull to refresh functionality.

              • 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 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.

                    • [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

                      • Please backport Svg​Image​Source

                        I don't understand why Svg​Image​Source limited to Creators Update. I guess it should use no new system API.
                        Please backport it to older version of Windows thru this library

                                  Please add the old Silverlight Pivot Control to UWP toolkit. This control is not to be confused with the existing pivot viewer in UWP.

                                  This control makes a great addition for displaying large amounts of data in a "visual" friendly format.

                                  The control is the equivalent of a pivot table in excel , you simply add the datasets with labels and the control sorts out all the selection fields , visualizations and animations.

                                    Currently, page breaks are not supported with the PrintHelper. Could this be made possible in a future update? I'd like to print a long MarkdownTextBlock or at least TextBox that does not fit on just one page.

                                      If would like to offer some guides to the user in our own application, it could be interesting to have some interesting to be able to show a Popup that give user some indication in the app in a precise scenario (like when discovering a page the first time or when a new feature has been delivered).

                                      • 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.

                                        • Export simple project from each sample page

                                          The idea would be to have a "Try" button on every sample. This button will generate a ready to use Visual Studio project with the current sample.
