Ready for some documentation for the ATK controls ?
To skip my journey to create this , download the Documentation ( in CHM form) here : AjaxControlToolkit Docs
Step 1 : Using AjaxDoc to generate the Reflection.org file required by Sandcastle
1.0) Download AjaxDoc here .
1.1) Download the Latest Source for the AjaxControlToolkit , here .
1.2) Get the Script Files from the AjaxControlToolkit project .
1.3) Create the AjaxControlToolkit.project.xml for AjaxDoc which has script references to the ATK Scripts.
1.4) Run the Default.aspx page
Hurdle 1 : DynamicPopulateBehavior.js just refused to load.
Added this line to ln 150 of ScriptDoc.js file to skip types which throw errors.
if(member ===null || typeof(member)==="undefined") continue;
1.5) Run the Default.aspx page again
Hurdle 2: “PopupBehavior is undefined”.
1.6) Re-arranged the script references in the Project.xml file to order the script files according to their dependencies.
1.7) Run the Default.aspx page again .
Step 2 : Use SandCastle to produce the CHM File
Follow the Steps 5-12 defined here : Creating a Chm build using Sandcastle
Whichever Transform you use (Vs2005/Prototype) , in step 8, remove these lines in the sandcastle.config file.
<language label="VisualBasic" name="VisualBasic" style="vb" /> <language label="CSharp" name="CSharp" style="cs" /> <language label="ManagedCPlusPlus" name="ManagedCPlusPlus" style="cpp" /> <!--<language label="JSharp" name="JSharp" style="cs" /> <language label="JScript" name="JScript" style="cs" />-->
There you go !
The CHM is not perfect ,
- The documentation is missing for the following components
- The Code Comments are missing from the CHM file
- Insert gripe here
I'll probably take a look at this again to see if I can generate a CHM which has the missing parts.
And finally , while Its not everything , its not nothing either 🙂
