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?

    • ContentDialog locking and placement

      ContentDialog is currently far too difficult to use, for two reasons: locking, and placement.
      1. Locking. Since only one ContentDialog can be shown at a time, a lock is needed (such as SemaphoreSlim(1,1) or a sequential queue of TaskCompletionSource). In other words, the class is not complete because normal use of it requires wrapping it in additional code.

      Recommendation: ContentDialog should do the locking so that the user does not have to. This means that ContentDialog.ShowAsync will wait until any currently-displayed ContentDialog is dismissed before showing the new dialog.

      2. Placement. If ShowAsync() or ShowAsync( ContentDialogPlacement.Popup) is used, then the…

      • Adaptive Tiles: optional elements and priority

        Currently when the last element(s) of the tile doesn't fit (because of users with unusual scaling settings for example) it get's "discarded" out of view which is understandable.
        But it would be nice to choose what elements get discarded first in case there's isn't enough space on the tile.
        It also helps with dealing with the scenario where because of the users scaling settings there is too much space on the tile where the developer could have shown extra info.

        • No exception from PasswordVault.FindAllByResource when there are no results

          PasswordVault.FindAllByResource throws a COMException when there are no credentials for the resource (or maybe only when there are no credentials). It should return an empty list without throwing an exception.

          • Make an actual Window.Closed Event for Uwp for desktop

            right now the window.closed event for desktop fires both for minimization and for closing events.

            I understand this is done because of the multiplatform support but it just makes desktop apps with multiple Windows harder 5o manage, so please.

            • ContentDialog templating issue

              When declaring a custom Template for ContentDialog, the template root must contain a Border with x:Name="Container" otherwise the ShowAsync method will throw a System.AccessViolationException.

              It MUST be done this way:
              <ControlTemplate TargetType="ContentDialog">
              <Border x:Name="Container">
              </Border>
              </ControlTemplate>

                • Create a Preview SDK download archive, just like the regular SDK download archive

                  We are able to download previous versions of the release versions of the Windows SDK. Why is the same not possible for the pre-release SDK?
                  On the slow ring we are currently on Windows build 17025, but the only SDK download link provided on the Windows Insider download page is for 17061 at time of writing. I am not willing to go to fast ring, because this renders my laptop useless. I tried.
                  So I propose a download archive for Windows Insider Preview SDKs, where we can download earlier versions of the Preview SDKs.

                  • ContentDialog and x:Bind issues

                    When you invoke the primary or secondary buttons in a ContentDialog, you are not losing focus in the control that was last being edited. If you are using x:Bind to bind that control's value to a property in the ContentDialog code-behind page, then when you press the primary button the property doesn't get updated.
                    I've tried forcing the control (in this case a TextBox) to lose focus programmatically in the Primary buttonevent handler, but this does not help. Ive also tried Bindings.Update - bit this does not help either.

                    The expected behaviour is that when you click on the Primary…

                      • Window Startup Position/Location

                        Currently there does not appear to be a way to set a window's startup position (left, top, width/right, height/bottom), beyond full-screen and/or maximized. Also, the last used position for a given window isn't saved intrinsically. Windows launch at random places on the desktop. I understand this need does not really exist for mobile. But for many desktop applications, specifically container applications, managing windows is a core feature objective.

                              Please extend KeyFrameAnimations/ScalarKeyFrameAnimations to makte them pausable and resumable.

                              The current workaround with setting Animations to AnimationStopBehavior.LeaveCurrentValue and resume them with this.startingValue is very painful and also error-prone - very much so when working with ScopedBatches and Completion-Listeners.

                                    RotatorTile's behavior is like an automated FlipView. I think it's good if RotatorTile has an indicator which shows what index is selected, or maybe another control that can be attached to RotatorTile.

                                    • Take Panoramic Photos(360) using UWP ?

                                      Hi ,

                                      Microsoft has added in the Camera App the Panorama Mode which works in some devices and tablets. Don't know if it is a specific number of devices that currently this feature works.

                                      Anyway.

                                      Is this possible to use this feature in our Windows App Store Universal Apps and if we can , do we have any sample code to accomplish this ?

                                      Don't want a solution with the scrollviewer and the compass because I have already done that.

                                      The panorama mode is beautiful and if only we could have a button to call the API from inside our…

                                        • Numeric TextBox with min and max value and decimal place and comma formatting

                                          I know that text boxes can be customized easily. But the UWP textboxes are not that god when it comes to numeric input. I'm currently working on a software that has a lot of numeric input. That's why I'm suggesting a specialized textbox for numbers.

                                          I'm suggesting a textbox with the following feature:
                                          1. Only allows numeric input
                                          2. Allow entering negative values
                                          3. Allow entering decimal values
                                          4. Format the text with a specific number of decimal place (i.e. 1.456 -> 1.46)
                                          5. Format numbers with commas on thousands (i.e. 1,000,000.00) on mouse leave and remove commas when editing. …
