Click hierarchy -> double, triple, quadruple, etc

<!-- ⚠️⚠️ Do Not Delete This! feature_request_template ⚠️⚠️ --> <!-- Please read our Rules of Conduct: --> <!-- Please search existing issues to avoid creating duplicates. -->

<!-- Describe the feature you'd like. --> Right now, clicking works as follows: Double Click: Selects word based on the boundaries in the config. Triple Click: Selects the whole line.

I would like to alter this behaviour so triple click selects within different bounds. Quadruple click then selects the entire line.


string line = "some text in here"; double click on text: string line = "some **text** in here"; triple click: string line = "**some text in here**"; quadruple click: **string line = "some text in here";**

Ideally, this would be extensible, so if others want to use even more clicks, they can. I work in a domain with many field identifiers that may be multiple words separated by a space. This means selecting them becomes a very manual effort. While I am mostly a keyboard user, I find myself using my mouse a lot while doing refactoring or initial bug exploration.

Enhanced Clipboard history with visualization

@xmedeko What I have and think of building on looks like this: image

  1. When something gets copied to clipboard successfully - you get a little, non-disruptive confirmation tag/button sliding out of a corner of the screen to make you confident you copied something successfully.
  2. When you click the tag - you get the clipboard history UI you normally access with Win+V
  3. When you hover - you get access to a menu of simple contextual commands based on content type and at least in case of text content right now - based on actual content of the copied text using a set of regular expressions that ultimately, a user could configure. If something you copied looks like a GUID - you click to look it up in your source code, documentation, registry or other GUID ID database. If it looks like a name - you could look it up in Facebook, LinkedIn or your address list. Any text can be used to invoke a bing search, a wiki search or source code search. You can also use a keyboard shortcut to strip the format from the text and paste it without formatting even in an app that doesn't normally support "paste as plain text". If you copy an image file - you can click a button to convert it to a bitmap to paste in any app that supports pasting images (e.g. Outlook) and if you copy a bitmap - you can click to use an AI service to get the description of the bitmap as text in the clipboard or save it to an image file and get the file and its path as added formats in the clipboard so you can paste it anywhere that takes a file or a file path but doesn't directly work with an image itself (see below).
  4. You could configure your own text types and URLs or programs that can be opened for them or plug in a PowerShell script to parse+recognize content and/or process it in any way if you want to add your own command to say - resize an image in clipboard before pasting it somewhere or quickly add meme-style text to an image before posting it on social media.
  5. Ultimately, this is a way to speed up work. For example, I use it daily to copy a bug ID and look it up in Azure DevOps with one click instead of - opening the browser, loading ADO, pasting the ID and clicking the search button. We could build a set of built in search patterns and commands and you could also add your own.

"Search: Focus Previous Search Result" causes "The window is no longer responding"


  • Set up keybindings for search.action.focusNextSearchResult and search.action.focusPreviousSearchResult
  • Use these keybindings when there are no search results, nothing should happen
  • And verify that the commands don't show up in the command palette when there are no search results
  • And verify that they work as expected when there are some search results

Limit UNT0007 and UNT0008 to `MonoBehaviour`?

Bug description

This is more of a query as to the scope of the rules, rather than a bug report.

  • Version of analyzers assembly: Unofficial.Microsoft.Unity.Analyzers 1.0.0
  • Analyzer rules: UNT0007 and UNT0008

These rules appear to be flagging anything that is derived from Unity.Object, however it appears the issues tackled by UNT0007 and UNT0008 are primarily related to stuff derived from MonoBehaviour - as far as I can tell.

For example, in the game Cities: Skylines:

The prop and m_finalProp are both derived from MonoBehaviour - as expected, anything null-related is problematic with them. The analyzer correctly flags that issue.

However, the m_mesh is derived from Unity.Object but not MonoBehaviour. In my testing I've not encountered any problems using ?., ?? or == null - they have always behaved as expected.

Also, in the case of == null checking instances derived from MonoBehaviour:

// problematic - fails to spot null ref
if (someThing == null) ...

// reliable
if (someThing) ...

The analyzer does not catch that issue.

Note: Cities: Skylines runs on Mono "2.0" (in Dr. Evil air quotes, b/c #define VERSION 2.0 and b/c game dev applied some extra tweaks so it's sort of v2.ish).

Note 2: I've not done much testing with GameObject so not sure if that's problematic like MonoBehaviour.

Add ExtraTreesRegressor

I think you did everything right. I believe that for the specific dataset you are using there is not "enough compute" to exploit hardware acceleration. I was going to suggest you to play with the tree implementations but you already tried (good!).

Next thing you can try is to increase the number of trees. You are only using 10 trees, I believe that as you move toward 100s or 1000s you should definitely see performance improvements. (Also increasing the dataset size may help)

[Power Rename] suggestion to change check boxes and labels

Summary of the new feature/enhancement

<!-- A clear and concise description of what the problem is that the new feature would solve. Describe why and how a user would use this new functionality (if applicable). -->

I would like to suggest a few small changes to the labels in Power Rename. Take a look at my example: image

  • I think a (checked) check box should be used to include things, not to exclude them. Therefore: " [v] include folders / subfolders / files" (in a more logical order) which may be checked from the start.
  • Same thing applies to: "Item name" and "File extension". Note that only files have extensions. Microsoft also recommends

Use positive phrasing. Don't phrase a label so that selecting a check box means not to perform an action.

Also, I think it would be good to include a Help link to an (online or offline?) page with more information about the possibilities of RegExp patterns.

Also, I think it would be good to add &acces keys to the check boxe labels.

The UWP docs should direct newcomers to WTS

As it's not a sample, it's hard to argue for its inclusion on the samples page.

I see where you're coming from, but one of WTS's strengths is generating code samples. You pick which features+frameworks you're interested in, then you can see how they would be used in a real-world application. I think WTS fits in perfectly with the stated goal of the samples page (emphasis mine):

Learn how to build great apps for Windows by experimenting with these samples. These samples show you how features work and help you jumpstart your own UWP apps.

I will raise this with the docs team directly, cheers.
