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. Access/Invoke Point of Service (POS) peripheral devices through background tasks

    Need to support APIs to access POS peripheral devices through background tasks

    Use case to be achieved-
    In an app that collects status information of assets, the user should be able to scan barcode of an asset (background task), and enter other information in the app (foreground task) while the barcode data is being retrieved (background task) and sent to the app (data transfer from background task to foreground task)

    • Provide full list for constant or values for paper sizes(national language support constant)

      You should update all the constants for the paper sizes for example constant for CR80 or business card and POS receipt paper wasn't stated but you wrote other sizes are being reserved .

      Am even stock now , I would be glad if you can update it now.

      Regards
