WebMatrix Suggestions

We’re looking for your feature ideas to make WebMatrix more awesome! One idea per entry, please.

To make WebMatrix better, 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".
(thinking…)

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.

    • Customisable Syntax Formatting

      We already have the fantastic formatting with Ctrl+K,Ctrl+D and "quote, bracket, brace" auto-closing.

      What I would love to see is more control over specific formatting, like braces on new lines when creating a new function and a separate one for statements (if, else, select, try, catch etc.) and options such as Ctrl+K,Ctrl+D formatting removing double line-spacing or trailing/redundant white-space

      To be clear on the exact intent I've included examples below.

      New line function brace - disabled:
      function doSomething()
      {
      //do something
      }

      New line function brace - enabled:
      function doSomething(){
      //do something
      }

      New line function brace - enabled
      New…

      • TypeScript intellisense

        WebMatrix is great and TypeScript intellisense would make it even better. Coloring is here, but without code completion it hardly can claim TypeScript support.

        • Pressing tab key does not should delete paragraph

          Pressing tab key when we have a selected paragraph it deletes the text when it should give the indenting.

              • Memory leak

                Please its version 3 and the Memory Leak on large files is still affecting performance.
                It's not fun having to wait 3 to 30 seconds for nothing!

                  • v3 and Editor slows when editing large files.

                    Editor slows heavily when editing large files.
                    Admin state that this is fixed in v2 so why is it still slowing down?

                    • Column Line Marker

                      Projects I do for work have an 80 character per line rule, so I currently use Notepad++ to edit documents. If this feature came to WebMatrix, I could start using it for all my web-related coding!

                      • Make Razor intellisense work with anonymous types (as it does in VS)

                        I use anonymous types to create the "model" for my view
                        @{
                        var some = new { name="some resource data", value=999 };
                        }

                        <p>Name: @some.name <span>@some.value</span></p>

                        It works beautifully in Visual Studio, but in WebMatrix it does not help me with suggestions.

                        • can't delete files

                          When right click and select delete from context menu, the file don't get deleted.
                          Hitting "delete" button does the job thou.

                          • Setup file location when creating a new project

                            It would be useful if I could setup the file location when creating a new project instead of changing it every time in the settings.
                            The experience should be similar to creating a project in Visual Studio. This is very useful if my projects are not in the same file location.

                                        I like the bare-bones nature of WebMatrix, but I also like to set preferences. Unless I am missing something, this feature is not an available. I would also like a "bare-bones" toolbox for drag and drop HTML items.

                                        • Complete this missing part on WebMatrix.

                                          There is something little that bugs me very much, like i tried to decribe it on iisForums ( http://forums.iis.net/p/1197472/2048899.aspx/1?Re+Autocomplete+second+values+problem+Suggestion+problem+acually+ ) WebMatrix suggest us wrong values on css elements that take two or more arguments. It always suggest values for the first argument. Please, make this bugs fix your main priority.
