Universal Windows Platform

Welcome to the Universal Windows Platform Developer Feedback site. This site provides the Windows developer community with a channel for feedback on the following topics:

  • Windows developer platform (APIs, runtimes, and controls)
  • Dev Center (dashboard, reporting/analytics, submission process, etc.)
  • Microsoft Store

Your suggestions will be reviewed by the Windows platform developer team to help with planning ideas and to better understand how developers are using the platform.

What this forum is not intended to cover or capture:

  • Windows consumer suggestions: Use the Windows Feedback Hub app built directly into Windows 10
  • Documentation on docs.microsoft.com: Sign in at the bottom of the page to give documentation feedback via Github
  • Visual Studio / .NET: Use the Visual Studio UserVoice site

If you’re new to UserVoice, two things to keep in mind are (a) List items (and item rankings) represent community interest in features, and not the 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 (or if too many different ideas are included in one suggestion).

How can we improve the Windows dev platform?

  1. Add a "Science" category

    There is no category specifically related to science apps; I think having such a category would provide a more refined ability to find such an app in the Store. The closest category (the one I'm using) is Education. Here are a couple of examples: I can envision a mobile app that is a "Tree Finder" that provides the ability to identify a tree genus/species by selecting from an imagery collection, or an Astronomical app that provides ephemeris data (position of sun, moon, planets, etc), in a graphical format. My particular application locates earthquakes on a map and allows the user…

    • Notify me when new feedback comes to Feedback hub

      Currently we have no notifying system to the developers when the customer add new feedback to the feedback hub. We, developers should check the developer dashboard every day and day. It's tooo painful. Is it possible to add the notification system? Just ping by mail is enough. Uservoice already have it.

      • Text Trimming should support a Position

        Sometimes you want text trimming to occur from the left or middle like "...some of my text." or "C:\Long Path...\somefile.txt". The TextBlock TextTrimming property should have an auxiliary TextTrimmingPosition property which defaults to Right, but can also be set to Middle or Left to support the same types of scenarios but in the other locations.

        • Include more info in ToastNotificationHistoryChangedTriggerDetail

          Ask: At a minimum, add the list of Tag/Group tuples affected by the change. Better still, surface the actual ToastNotification objects in the detail.

          Reason: There's currently no API available for tracking the full lifecycle of toast notifications through Action Center. ToastNotificationHistory only provides the current state, which even with polling/diffing doesn't provide the reason a notification was removed (expired? queue too long? user removed?). Meanwhile, the background-task history trigger only provides a general "something changed", not the actual toasts affected.

          This makes it extremely difficult for an app to maintain any in-app representation of notifications and synchronizing changed with…

          • Package Flight Groups - Beta Transition

            Once a flight group is selected for a package Flight Submission it cannot be changed.

            Allowing it to change would help greatly in our release process. Currently to perform our final Staging test we submit a package flight and add a group that targets our internal testers. This works well.

            Once we complete internal testing many time we want to open up the distribution to a larger group. The group on the submitted flight cannot be changed without submitting a new flight which may require a rebuild since the same version cannot be submitted and waiting for another certification many…

            • Add Support for Incremental Loading with the DataGrid

              As far as I can tell, the DataGrid does not support incremental loading.

              Working with big datasets and remote databases this is an essential feature.

              • Two Copy and Paste Functions

                My idea is simply to double the clipboard capabilities to improve user efficiency.

                The 4 options should be made available on the context menu when highlighting a text or item.

                For example;
                Copy 1 [Item A]
                Copy 2 [Item B]
                Paste 1 [Item A]
                Paste 2 [Item B]

                The commands could be changed to colours, rather than numerical values. E.g. Copy <blue> Paste <blue>
                Copy <Green> Paste <Green>

                              I would like to be able to define new quick setting tiles that would interact with my app looking like the native ones, having multiple possible states (e.g. two like the location tile or more like the brightness tile).
                              An user would get notified that new quick setting tiles are available when an app publishes them and go into notification and action options to view and add them to action center.

                              • RadioButton navigation bug when using TabFocusNavigation=Once and XYFocusKeyboardNavigation=Enabled

                                Arrow keys do not move between radio buttons if the containing StackPanel has TabFocusNavigation="Once". If the containing StackPanel has TabFocusNavigation="Local" (or is not set) then the arrow keys will not move back from an initial RadioButton to a preceding Button in the StackPanel.

                                Like this:

                                <StackPanel XYFocusKeyboardNavigation="Enabled" TabFocusNavigation="Once">
                                <Button Content="B1"/>
                                <Button Content="B2"/>
                                <RadioButton Content="R1" />
                                <RadioButton Content="R2" />
                                <RadioButton Content="R3" GroupName="X" />
                                <RadioButton Content="R4" GroupName="X" />
                                <RadioButton Content="R5" />
                                <Button Content="B3"/>
                                </StackPanel>

                                While this example includes Button as well as RadioButton, the problem is evident even if you only have RadioButton.

                                With TabFocusNavigation="Once", navigation gets stuck at R1. Starting with…

                                  Hello guys,

                                  I experienced problem with UWP ListView, particularly using ISupportIncrementalLoading interface as a datasource.

                                  A few words about problem context:
                                  In our UWP app there is a ListView, and it uses ISupportIncrementalLoading as a DataSource.
                                  And while next part of data is loading, ListView is disabled.

                                  So, the problem in that if you scroll ListView in way you catch ScrollBar and pull it to the down,
                                  when you scroll to the end of the list, ListView will be disabled for some period of time (while data is loading).
                                  And if you release mouse button from ScrollBar
                                  while ListView is…

                                  • windbg preview triage

                                    Could you maybe make it so we can actually edit the Triage files in WinDBG Preview? Not having the ability to change ignores is program breaking.
                                    I see that !triage is deprecated as a command, but the functionality needs to be there.

                                    • Dev Dashboard: Clicking pretty much anything reloads the entire page

                                      As a developer, I'm always in the Dev Dashboard. Despite being built to appear as a single-page app, clicking pretty much any link in Dev Dashboard will result in an entire reload of the page, to include navigation bars and columns. This is very slow.

                                      This behavior makes quick health checks and submissions nearly impossible. I now avoid logging in until absolutely required.

                                      • Dev Dashboard: Can't delete (dummy) apps/games

                                        As an early adopter of the platform, I have a number of "test" apps and/or games. I can't delete or hide them in the dashboard. This eats up screen real estate and impacts load times.

                                        I contacted support and they can't delete them either (SRX1418420784ID)

                                        • Dev Dashboard: Can’t delete customer groups, even when they’re not used anywhere

                                          As a developer, I manage customer groups for package flighting and customer segmentation. When I'm done using a Customer Group, I cannot delete or hide it. (I also created a few test groups I can't delete in the past as part of my exploration of the dashboard.)

                                          Unused groups eat up screen estate and impact load time of the page.
