    Can't believe this functionality doesn't exist in UWP!

    Most compelling feature I would like Microsoft to implement.

    An always happy Friday as I just got the TFS complete email :) As this hasn’t hit an insider preview SDK, i’m going to mark this still as “working on it” still BUT … this will be coming to an insider build near you!

    This item heart is markup extensions. There is one item that will not be there however that is relevant to markup extensions, IServiceProvider. I created a new item for that but we are working on this item [https://wpdev.uservoice.com/forums/110705-universal-windows-platform/suggestions/19416094-iserviceprovider-for-markup-extensions-for-wpf-par]. We have created a new one and we are working on that (that includes IProvideValueTarget and INameScope) but feel we have enough to ship this and mark this larger work item done and we do point out in reference to more work items need to happen, namely the work around IServiceProvider.

    Also XamlServices.Load / Save isn’t directly related to markup extenstion so we’re viewing that…

    Anything ever gonna happen with Xamarin's ugly XAML? I've started exploring Platform.Uno, takes UWP to Android, iOS and Web!
    XAML standard looks hopeless.

    Number 1 feature! I'm watching the Build '18 sessions about UWP and I'm so jealous of the incredible features UWP offers. Unfortunately since it's Windows only, it's not the right technology for us. Please make UWP multi-platform, and have it run on Mac, Android, iOS and web.

    MS has decided to kick all its loyal XAML devs' a$$es, and favorite HTML-CSS-JS over CS-XAML. HCJ are hardcoded languages and evil. I'm waiting for the day MS brings back Silverlight+RIA services as plugin free, via compiling to HCJ.

    Shimmy Weitzhandler commented  · 

    I think having a 'compiler' that generates Silverlight code into HTML5+CSS3+JS code would be awesome, I think it's even worth throwing away some existing SL features to make the generator compatible with HTML5+CSS3+JS.
    It's not a secret, even many devs use it a lot, JavaScript is a stinky error-prone language. Having C#+XAML generated to H+C+J would be extremely great.

    Not only that but it will also make C#+XAML the most portable language in the world, it will work on every browser supporting HTML5/CSS3/JS, could make OOB wrappers for Linux, Android, OSX/iOS and more.
    Besides that SL is already easily portable to WPF/WinRT apps.

    Not to mentioned the awesomeness of RIA Services and the integrated validation tools that only SL offers, it's currently not present for WPF nor for WinRT.

    IMHO, MS gave up an awesome technology to get attention from the js developers, which is not completely stupid, what's stupid is that the ppl who worked on those awesome technology are frustrated. Moving from Silverlight to JS is like moving from Blue Label to Red Label...

    yes, indeed. this is an obvious one that we didn’t overlook, simply ran out of time before the Tech Preview. We expect to get this working soon. Understand that expectations can change due to internal “resource allocations,” but even so I’m giving it very good odds. :)

    Oooh yep. That is a natural extension of what we’ve done. It’s just a lot trickier to manipulate the input line (there are different input modes that apps can subscribe to and whatnot) than it is to enable more ways to select the output. But I hear you for sure. Now that we select more like a text editor, I want it all! It’s on the backlog. :)
