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 (developer portal, back-end services, reporting/analytics and process)
  • Microsoft Store

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:

  • Windows:
  • Documentation on docs.microsoft.com
    • Sign in to give documentation feedback via Github
  • Visual Studio / .NET

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. Please provide (Fluent) design toolkits for Affinity Designer

    There are design toolkits available for several designer programs at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/uwp/design/downloads/index.

    However, there is no toolkit available for Affinity Designer (which is the only design program besides Adobe XD that is available in the Microsoft Store).

    Please make the (Fluent) design toolkits available for Affinity Designer.

    • Add "Delay" or "KeyTime" property to Setter

      With Composition Behaviors we have a very nice way to do animations using just setters, however if you want to change Visibility of a control after performing animation you have to add a storyboard to your visual state, otherwise it will be changed immediately.

      Would be great if setter had "Delay" property to only execute it after a certain amount of time.

      • Get the next appointment

        It would be great to be able to get the current appointment and the next appointment a user has. For example, I would like to display the user's next appointment like the one in the lock screen

                    Is there anyway you could make Windbg Preview available for offline downloading? I'm having some trouble with hackers and I would like to keep my machine offline.

                    • Dev Dashboard: Do not show 1500 character limit error until I hit 1500 characters

                      As a developer working on a submission, I don't want to see erroneous errors on the store listing page.

                      When typing in the What's New text area, a message "Release notes can’t be more than 1500 characters" with a red (X) glyph appears when you reach 1458 characters. There is no actual error and submission completes.

                      The error is in error.

                      I'm okay with a friendly warning, perhaps a glyph replacement? Yellow exclamation?

                            At Build 2018, support between Cortana and Alexa was announced. I would like to add Bixby to this list. Not only will this benefit both Microsoft and Samsung but put more power into the hands of the users and developers of both (which are many, many people).

                            • Microsoft Advertising SDK for Windows 8 (Xaml) could not be found.

                              I have built an app that targets Windows 8 and the customer is looking for a servicing fix on Windows 8. I have got the fix ready, but in order to produce a fix I need to be able to compile with the Microsoft Advertising SDK for Windows 8 (Xaml). Is there anywhere I can find a copy and download it?

                              • RichTextBlock TextHighlighter crashes if used after an InlineUIElement

                                Exactly as the title says. Attempting to use TextHighlighter(s) with a StartIndex after an InlineUIElement will result in a crash. I have included code to reproduce the issue:

                                C#: https://hastebin.com/owacelasov.cs

                                XAML: https://hastebin.com/ujuxacilug.xml

                                The issue seems to be somewhere in Windows.UI.Xaml.dll!TextBlockViewHelpers::AdjustPositionByCharacterCount(). It appears that garbage data (from the stack, I assume) is being used for the value `curInlineLength`. Call stack: https://hastebin.com/legulilabu

                                • Windows in Android

                                  Is not news that Window mobile won't have a chance against the major OSs out in the market, so I was thinking "why try to implement something new, when what is out there can be used for good on Microsoft side?" So this I have been thinking so far:

                                  Microsoft have a good amount of apps on the Google Play Store. They have a great launcher, Cortana, Outlook, Office for mobile and so on. Why don't build a phone powered by Android but running customized by Microsoft itself.

                                  • Extend maximum size for CompactOverlay view mode.

                                    The ApplicationViewMode CompactOverlay (also known as "Picture-in-Picture", "Mini-Mode" or "Always-on-top") for UWP apps has a maximum window size, which seems to be a square with sides of approximately half screen height.

                                    I got several user feedback if I could provide a larger compact overlay.
                                    Unfortunately I can not, since this is limited through Windows.

                                    Is there a good reason for this somehow arbitrary limit? (Other than "our product manager said 500 pixels are a good maximum width and height for something called compact"😋)
                                    Could you please increase the maximum size or better: remove it at all! Seems my users would…

                                    • DataGrid DoubleTap Event Specific to the DataGridRows Themselves

                                      Currently, to interact with a DataGrid's rows, you must specify a SelectionChanged event. This can become inefficient and somewhat confusing when users are able to select more than one items. Because of this, I would like the functionality to only execute the SelectedItem code when a row is DoubleTapped. Previously, it was possible to add an EventSetter to the DataGridRows' style (As mentioned here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/22790181/wpf-datagrid-row-double-click-event-programmatically), but since EventSetter is now not apart of UWP, I am left without this functionality. My proposed solution is to add a "RowDoubleTapped" event directly to the UWP DataGrid class itself. I need this…

                                      • UWP Grid should have ShowGridLines property from WPF

                                        The WPF Grid control had a ShowGridLines property. This is helpful for layout debugging. This property is missing in UWP.

                                        • I want a nice simple .NET Framework class that creates a video of what is on the screen

                                          Suppose Windows is misbehaving. Suppose the best way to demonstrate the misbehavior is to create an MP4 file (a video). Suppose I want this to happen under program control. My program. Not Microsoft's program. Suppose I want it to be absolutely certain the video has not been monkeyed with.
