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?

    • Animated Headered TextBox

      I would like to add a AnimatedHeaderedTextBox control to the Toolkit. Are you interested?

      I can add only a style + behavior or create a custom control for it. What do you prefer?

      See:

      • Add click event for row- Datagrid

        Please add a click event for row in datagrid.
        The selection changed event does not work when is necessary to open a new page.
        Because to select the same row is necessary select another row and then re-select the previous row.

          • Add CanUserEdit for DataGrid

            https://github.com/Microsoft/WindowsCommunityToolkit/issues/2316
            Currently it detects whether editable itself. This should be configurable by the developer.

            • CalcBinding for UWP

              CalcBinding is an advanced Binding markup extension that allows you to write calculated binding expressions in XAML, without custom converters. CalcBinding can automatically perform bool to visibility conversion, inverse your expression and more. CalcBinding makes binding expressions shorter and more user-friendly.

              This is only available for WPF - https://github.com/Alex141/CalcBinding

              Here are some examples

              <Label Content="{c:Binding A+B+C }" />

              <Label Content="{c:Binding A*0.5+(B.NestedProp1/C - B.NestedProp2 % C) }" />

              <Button Background="{c:Binding '(A > B ? media:Brushes.LightBlue : media:Brushes.White)'}"/>

              <TextBox Text="{c:Binding 'Math.Sin(Math.Cos(A))'}"/>

              <Button Visibility="{c:Binding !IsChecked}" />

              <c:Binding 'A and B or C' />

              • Fully implemented Twitter and LinkedIn services for .NET Framework

                Now that both services were migrated to NET Standard, it'd be great to have implementations for the .NET Framework, along with the already existing ones for UWP.

                The required changes would be coding the implementation of the four platform-dependent interfaces that these services depend on.

                • Add LineHeight property for MarkdownTextBlock

                  LineHeight is pretty important for an easier reading experience and I let my app's users select line height for their own liking. The regular TextBlock control has this property but unfortunately, MarkdownTextBlock lacks this property. It would be nice to have.

                  • 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…

                      • Enhance LoadingControl to disable navigation when running.

                        Would it be possible to enhance the loading control to disable navigation when it is running? E.g. the back button. Template 10 has a Loading (Busy) page that has this functionality.

                        • Add official Acrylic API for WPF apps

                          It is currently officially impossible to display the acrylic window-background effect in a non-UWP window. Several developers have managed to coax out the private API used to implement this feature in a desktop app (see <https://withinrafael.com/2018/02/01/adding-acrylic-blur-to-your-windows-10-apps-redstone-4-desktop-apps/>); however this API is officially unsupported, can change at any time, and has been changed in a backwards-incompatible manner once in the past.

                          Would it be too much to ask for an API that wraps whatever mechanism is required to accomplish this? Using the UWP acrylic API in a XAML Island won't quite work for me, as I want to place WPF…

                            • Grouped ComboBox

                              In WPF we had the possibility to have groups within the ComboBox list. We now have this option for ListView and GridView, but not for the ComboBox control.

                              For example:

                              - Fruits (group name)
                              -- Banana (item name)
                              -- Apple (item name)
                              -- Orange (item name)

                              - Vegetables (group name)
                              -- Carrot (item name)
                              -- Cucumber (item name)

                              WPF example:

                              • Services.Twitter - add support for additional members of tweet JSON; add support for expanded t.co URLs

                                Several members of returned JSON from Twitter's API are missing from the Services.Twitter implementation.

                                This returns the full URL of a t.co shortened URL in a tweet:
                                entities > urls > unwound > url

                                The title of the URL as displayed in the URL card on the tweet:
                                entities > urls > unwound > title

                                For quote tweets, a parameter named quoted_status returns information about a quoted tweet.

                                Info came from here:
                                https://developer.twitter.com/en/docs/tweets/data-dictionary/overview/intro-to-tweet-json.html

                                • Add custom CalendarView control

                                  Add a custom CalendarView control with more personalization options than the one included in the SDK.

                                  List of features:
                                  - Individual CalendarMonthView control, so that if you want to display standalone months, you can (maybe you display a grid of 4 months, etc)
                                  - CalendarView control that consumes the CalendarMonthView
                                  - CalendarView supports swiping up/down to switch months
                                  - CalendarView supports arrows that appear when hovered allowing mouse users to switch months
                                  - CalendarView supports mouse scroll to switch months
                                  - CalendarView supports adding buttons/elements that stay fixed while scrolling (like a Go To Today button)

                                  • Display cached and on demand downloaded data in ListView using incremental loading

                                    Let's say there is a app which display news stories. The app does not want to have too many stories on the screen and load stories on demand. The first time the app is opened it downloads news article and display's say the top 10 to user in a ListView and rest are stored locally. These are displayed if the user scrolls down (Incremental Loading Collection Helpers are great addition).

                                    Now let's say next day, the app is opened again. App immediately displays yesterday's news stories and works in background to load new stories (or user pulls to refresh). As…

                                    • Add SwitchPresenter Control

                                      Add a 'switch' statement for XAML which allows app developers to modify parts of a layout based on a value.

                                      • Use ContentPresenter in MasterDetailsView instead of ListView

                                        Currently, In MasterView, we can only use ListView. It limits the use case of MasterView. We can't use Pivot, Semantic Zoom, GridView, PullToRefresh, SlidableListItem and more. But if it accepts ContentPresenter then the limit would be endless.

                                        Don't fake the page navigation using Storyboard. Then devs can use Connected Animations.

                                        • Control to create an App Tour Guide

                                          Control explanation: This control should cover the entire app with a semi-transparent background except the highlighted UIElement so that the user can interact with the UIElement. In short, we need a UWP alternative to ShowcaseView (https://github.com/amlcurran/ShowcaseView)

                                          Use of the control: This control will help the user to take a tour of the app in an interactive way.
