.NET Documentation Tool 9.0 (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 utility in understanding your (or someone else's!) applications. Versions for ASP and Visual Basic 6.0 are also available.

Changes in version 9.0 of the .NET Documentation Tool are:
  • There is now some provisional support for XAML files used in WPF/Silverlight applications. Note that this technology is still in the early stages of development by Microsoft and may be subject to change. XAML files are documented as XML. VB.NET or C# code behind files associated with the XAML files are automatically detected.

  • Work to add .NET Framework 3.0, .NET Framework 3.5 and C# 3.0 support to the .NET Documentation Tool has started.

  • C# 3.0 is now supported.
