Xamarin Platform Suggestions

We’d like your suggestions and ideas to help us continuously improve future releases of the Xamarin Platform, so we’ve partnered with UserVoice, a third-party service, to collect your feedback. Please do not send any novel or patentable ideas, copyrighted materials, samples or demos for which you do not want to grant a license to Microsoft.

This site is for feature suggestions; if you need to file a bug, you can visit our Developer Community website to get started.

Note: your use of the portal and your submission is subject to the UserVoice Terms of Service & Privacy Policy and license terms.

We look forward to hearing from you!
- The Xamarin Platform Team

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.

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

  1. Add RTL support

    By using default font the Farsi words is just the symbols and cannot be read.

    but after the font change to something like Segoei the words can be read and theres no problem in the visual.

    but there is a problem on selecting the text and moving cursor around the text. I cannot provide screen shot about that because its something you might check by your self.

        • Support Xamarin.Forms development on Linux

          Now that Xamarin.Forms is open source I would love to see the development of it supported on Linux. IntelliJ Rider goes some way to helping achieve that but we still need xaml rendering support and the ability to install the Xamarin SDK on Linux (if this is already possible please let me know how!). I love Linux and it seems to me that there's quite a group moving away from Windows and OS X towards Linux.

            • Make Xamarin Profiler available for Professional subscription

              As an individual developer I have a Professional subscription. I build apps for myself as well as for other companies. In order to build good apps I need to profile my apps every now and then. Unfortunately this is not possible anymore because of the changed licenses. I had a Xamarin business license before which suited my needs perfectly. But the professional VS license is now insufficient to do my work because the Xamarin Profiler is missing. The Enterprise license is simply to expensive.

                • Support Right to Left Languages

                  even with the option HorizontalOptions="End" it's not enough, not all controls support it.
                  for example MasterDetailPage i can't make the side menu appear from the right

                  to make everything work i have to custom render

                      • .plist text editor

                        It would be really cool to be able to edit Info.plist file as plain text file VS for Mac without using property inspector. Now we have to open it in another editor if we need to manipulate its content as plain text.

                        • Different icons in intellisense for extension methods

                          When we import namespaces with lots of extension methods (Reactive, Linq) it would be very useful to distinguish them from class methods - to understand object interface(Api) more cleanly

                          It is simple to do - just add new icon color for intellisense ext method

                            The current Urho3d support seems to end at 1.3, is there a possibility this could continue to be updated to follow along with the Urho3d release stream v1.6?

                                Since microsoft took over Xamarin, licensing has been a major issue: VS Professional is insuffissient, VS Enterprise is overkill. I would like to have the Xamarin Business license back the way it was fully featured without me having to pay thousands extra for stuff that I don't need

                                    • Default file association in xamarin studio

                                      Change your Default file association for XS for each file.type
                                      I would be nice to change your file association for all file types in Xamarin studio. It would be must faster and more productive if a user can selected there own program to edit your file. Instead of opening the file by using a right click and then open. And make the default file association changeable so i can always reselected my program.

                                      Maybe make a option for a popup

                                      I.e I love to open a my xib file directly in xcode instead of IOS Designer.

                                      • Support for MacBook pro touch bar in Xamarin studio

                                        Would be very neat to have contextual actions right from the touch bar - e.g. quick fix, find references, etc.

                                        • Updating Resources Progress Bar

                                          I have more than once been caught waiting (a long time) for the "Updating Resources" notification to clear. How about a progress bar to show, duh, PROGRESS on this, and enable us to guesstimate how long the whole process is going to take.
