.NET Documentation Tool 8.8 (C#/VB.NET)

The .NET Documentation Tool code documentor tool automatically builds comprehensive technical software documentation for .NET Framework applications written in VB.NET or C#. Microsoft SQL Server and Microsoft Access databases associated with the application may also be documented if required. There is enhanced functionality for documenting ASP.NET web applications.

Reports are created in HTML [sample], Microsoft's HTML Help [sample] and text [sample] formats. Color coded, syntax highlighted copies of the .NET and SQL code are included with the reports. The compiled HTML Help reports include fully searchable source code, making the
.NET Documentation Tool an invaluable timesaving utility in understanding your (or someone
else's!) applications. Versions for ASP and Visual Basic 6.0 are also available.

Changes in version 8.8 of the .NET Documentation Tool are:

  • Added an improved SQL Server 2005 connection string example to the help file.

  • HTTP Handler (also known as web handler) files are now documented (these normally have the file extension .ashx). This change improves the documentation of ASP.NET web applications.

  • Added sample Web Handler file (LogoutHandler.ashx) to SampleWeb.NET sample project.
