    • When browsing .Net standard, show the minimum version a namespace is introduced

      It would be great to be able to see the first/minimum version that a namespace is introduced. This way, if you are browsing and realize that you really only need .Net Standard 1.3 instead of 1.6, for example, you can see that quickly without having to flip back and forth. Alternatively, having a feature comparison chart where 2+ .Net versions are selected and their namespaces are compared would serve the same purpose.

      • Support searching for parts of API names

        Support searching for parts of API names - e.g. index camel cased word parts.

        Currently, there are no Results for "NullOrEmpty" - which is just a full part of "IsNullOrEmpty".

        It would also be helpful to fuzzily match up names (better than no results): e.g. "isnowhi" should include "String.IsNullOrWhitespace" in the results (ranked below a possible "IsNowhereIncluded" method).

          • Display extension methods in API reference for a class

            For example, in the existing MSDN documentation for IEnumerable<T>, we also see all of the extension methods that are defined for that type:

            https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/9eekhta0(v=vs.110).aspx

            In the new .NET API Browser, the IEnumerable<T> reference only lists the GetEnumerator() method. None of the documentation for IEnumerable<T> says anything about the presence of these extension methods or even links to System.Linq.Enumerable.

            https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/api/System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable-1

            • Use short well know type names

              Right now Monitor.​Wait is displayed as:

              Monitor.​Wait(​System.​Object,​System.​Int32,​System.​Boolean)

              Much easier to read version would be:
              Monitor.​Wait(object, int, bool)

                  • Please provide better navigation of "topics" in both the online "docs" and in the offline HelpViewer

                    At the moment there is a poor experience when trying to read a large collection of topics in sequence.

                    As an example...lets say I want to completely digest the "Introduction to ASP.NET Core" "book".

                    If I go online...to "docs".....I cannot easily move from "page" to "page"...I am to break my concentration and use the mouse to select the next bit to read from the side panel....I also have to contend with mentally expanding as well.

                    If i use your offline "helper viewer"....then while I can just keep pressing your "Right Arrow" key to move to the next "topic"....this gets "stuck"…

                        • IsRequestToSendEnabled doc

                          The doco for IsRequestToSendEnabled at

                          https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/uwp/api/Windows.Devices.SerialCommunication.SerialDevice#Windows_Devices_SerialCommunication_SerialDevice_IsDataTerminalReadyEnabled

                          says that it "Enables or disables the Request to Send (RTS) signal. true enables DTR; Otherwise, false."

                          I believe it should be

                          'true enables *RTS*'

                                  如果“掃描所有可用的更新”指令没有任何返回信息,是否意味着系统已经安装了必要的更新?

                                  • Improve site navigation

                                    The docs site doesn't feel like a coherent whole. There are too many tabs and menus and many navigate out to different websites. Plus it's always difficult to know how to get back to the root of the site. E.g. i've been clicking around the Docs on Microsoft Edge and now i want to get back to the .NET Core documentation. How do i get there? The Microsoft logo in the top left takes me to Microsoft.com, not docs.microsoft.com. The only way i can see is to retype the URL or click back button maybe a dozen or more times.

                                      • The billing page is so complicated.

                                        I find your current billing page so complicated.

                                        I use Azure for my job in IT for demo systems. I have to claim back the Azure cost and therefore need a receipt.

                                        Getting a simple monthly downloadable receipt is baffling.

                                        Please simplify it.
