Using Python in Visual Studio 2019 Community Edition

Given the popularity of Python, is there a team working on Python for Visual Studio Community Edition ?

If so, is there a plan to provide a Design View feature that would allow controls to be drag & dropped on a Panel or Form ? This would be similar to the design view and toolbox used in C#.

BTW I couldn't find a Python Tag. What am I missing?

Hi, @srfpala
I suggest you directly suggest this feature to Visual Studio Product Team in our Developer Community, and if you do suggest this feature, please share the link here, other forum members who are interested or needed this feature will go to vote for this thread.

The popularity of Python does not make it a compelling reason to enable Python/WinForms (a Windows only mixture).

Microsoft used to have IronPython and WinForms, but spin it off as an open source project on its own, https://www.google.com/search?q=ironpython+Winforms&oq=ironpython+Winforms&aqs=edge..69i57j0i22i30l3.5749j0j1&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

Microsoft's own Python team is more focusing on the common Python stacks (cross platform) on top of Azure/Visual Studio/Visual Studio Code.
