Xamarin Platform Suggestions

Announcement: This forum has been migrated to provide you one convenient and responsive system for all feedback. You can now suggest new ideas, browse and vote on existing ideas in the Visual Studio Developer Community. To learn more about the migration to Visual Studio Developer Community please check out the release blog post.

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".

  2. Make Xamarin Profiler available for Professional subscription

    This suggestion is migrated to Developer Community. Please use below link to view the current status.
    https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/idea/351884/make-xamarin-profiler-available-for-professional-s.html
    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…

  5. Add RTL support

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

    https://pasteboard.co/H28hYOw.png

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

    https://pasteboard.co/H28i9ts.png

    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.

  8. 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.

  11. 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

  14. .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.

  15. 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

  18. Xamarin only license

    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
