  2. High use of controls or triggers made application flickered

    When we use layout controls at high end and triggers, due to client requirement we create own style for specific control made wpf application flickered sometime... which is not good interface for client.

  4. Provide way for ICommands to determine the UIElement which owns the command

    ICommands should have the ability, when executed, to determine which UIElement owns the command. Perhaps when event handlers are invoked, CallContext could be used to store the current UIElement 'sender'.

  5. Fix XPS Document Writer Threadsafety

    If you try to submit an .xps document to "Microsoft XPS Document Writer" printer using PrintQueue.AddJob(), but from a worker thread (not the application thread), it fails with an exception. I don't understand how that is even possible, but it's irritating to have to special case this one driver to print on the main app thread.

    Thank you for your feedback on this idea. We have reviewed this and we will not be able to complete this suggestion in the foreseeable future. A number of our partners like Telerik, Infragistics support a large number of customizable themes. Another option would be Open Source projects like MahApps who have great Metro style themes for WPF applications.

  7. Improve Antialiasing

    The Antialiasing algorithm needs to be improved, especially for white on black text when not using cleartype where it displays both artifacts and oversaturated aliasing

    See this example: http://img69.imageshack.us/img69/514/textquality.png

  12. Make it easy to use WPF from C++

    WPF is the most modern technology for creating GUIs Microsoft has to provide. Unluckily it is rather unpleasant to use from C++(/CLI) (at least a lot more unpleasant than C#).

    So add C++/CLI as an additional first-class language for developing WPF applications.

  14. Make more WPF features work in partial trust

    It would be great if more WPF features were available in partial trust like bitmap effects applied to my application UI, access to more than just the domain of origin.
