I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. xwt support

    Add support to MonoDevelop for XWT user interfaces.
    A visually designer would be nice.
    https://github.com/mono/xwt

    Xwt is a new .NET framework for creating desktop applications that run on multiple platforms from the same codebase. Xwt works by exposing one unified API across all environments that is mapped to a set of native controls on each platform.
    Xwt works by creating an engine at runtime that will map to the underlying platform. These are the engines that are supported on each platform:
    - Windows: WPF engine, Gtk engine (using Gtk#)
    - MacOS X: Cocoa engine (using MonoMac) and Gtk engine (using…

      • NotImplementedException occurences in Task list

        Monodevelop contains a kind of TODO list that lists all comments marked as TODO. It would be gratly beneficial to allow including NotImplementedException occurences on the list - such as Resharper's TODO list does.

        This feature would be VERY helpful in doing test-driven development, since it allowsquickly answer the question "what next?"

        Another reason is that you don't want to have NotImplementedExceptions in your final production code, so it's good to keep track of them.

        • Improve Immediate Window / Expression Evaluator + Linq Support

          The existing immediate-window and expression evaluator should be improved:

          - Add full code-completion and syntax highlighting
          - Make the evaluation engine more robust (currently many statements can`t be executed)
          - Allow Linq-Statements to be executed

          Maybe it would be the best to integrate the Compiler-as-a-Service to accomplish the above improvements.

          • Frictionless deployment of asp.net mvc on appharbor please

            This might be an appharbor issue, but deploying asp.net mvc apps onto appharbor always seems to fail. Config issues might be the issue (maing it a potentially trivial change) but I've not managed to resolve.

              • Automatically start the App on the iOS device when debugging

                Every time a new version of an App is uploaded on the iOS device (iPhone or iPad) for the debug, we need to do this cumbersome procedure:
                - open the multitask bar and close the old instance of the app
                - searching for the App icon and starting it
                - waiting for the debugger to hook to the process
                - veryfing that the app is the right version, and not an old or different version forgot somewhere in the device (a different app id is sometimes enough to confuse and create disasters)
                In XCode the right App is started automatically…

                • Debug mode for the LLVM compiler

                  The LLVM compiler is still in experimental mode, but it's already required for many libraries using the ARMv7 architecture.
                  The only way to use it is to renounce to debug or to go back to XCode 4.2. Please complete the development of the LLVM optimizing compiler and enable the Debug mode.

                  Thanks.

                  • Bugzilla integration!!

                    Many bugs goes underreported because of the hassle of creating a bug report on bugzilla.xamarin.com that is both complete and accurate.

                    MonoDevelop should integrate a "Post a Bug Report" button on every crash or error message that pops up when compiling on running our projects.

                    Ideally it should automatically:
                    - if the error is already present on Bugzilla, it should show it and its description, to see if it match. Clicking on it shoud allow to read the bug report, and automatically add the user to the counter of the users affected by the bug. In this way the team…

                    • Code Contracts support

                      This depends on the support by Mono but it would be great to have this.
                      Support should include generation of contract reference assembly, loading of third-party ones, options to turn it on/off, inline display of contracts.
                      Thanks!

                                  MonoDevelop already has too many features many of which just add to the general instability of the app. I propose a complete moratorium on new features until MD can be used for a full day of development without a single crash.

                                    I would like support so I can import the Visual Studio settings file for at least my Colors and Font settings and perhaps overtime even more. This file format is xml based and there is no reason it can not be easily supported. Most MonoDevelop users are coming from Visual Studio or we go back and forth between the two, having the same look & feel is very important.
