Summary

In this chapter, you have looked at all aspects of XML documentation, from how to create it to what you can do with it. Specifically, you have seen:

  • XML documentation syntax
  • How to include external XML documentation
  • How XML documentation is used in VS IntelliSense and the Object Browser
  • How to use class diagrams to add XML documentation
  • How to generate XML documentation files
  • How to process XML documentation files in C#
  • How to style XML documentation with XSLT
  • How to use NDoc to compile help files from XML documentation

Admittedly, adding XML documentation to your projects can be a time-consuming process, and it can make your source code look a bit messy. But in large-scale projects, it is an essential part of development, and the end result is well worth the effort — especially when you use a tool like NDoc to finish things off.
