    Nice! 🙂

    You said it supports all .NET Languages, does that include XAML?

    What about general .NET 3.0?

  3. aram says:

    Yes we do provide XAML support. I have not provided any details about XAML with this release. I will get back with a blog about XAML support.

    Internally we are using full blown version of this bits for building Framework versions. I will again get back with a blog about 3.0.

    Feel free to send your feedback and it’s much appreciated.

  4. Vimpyboy says:

    Okey, I´m gonna test it on some projects.

    Can you blog about how to use existing files generated by VS with this tool?

  5. aram says:

    Mikael – Could you clarify abou what you mean by existing files generated by VS?

    Do you mean /// comments in a C# file or the HxS output from Sandcastle which can be used for DExplorer (VS) integration?

    Anand..

  6. Vimpyboy says:

    I mean the XML files with the XML comments (///) generated by VS (or with csc.exe /doc:…).

    I have some projects with generated XML comment files which I want to test with sandcastle.

    Can you explain how to do this step-by-step?

  7. nuggetboy says:

    Anand … a much-awaited post.  Thanks for this.

    Mikael,

    The blog post http://blogs.msdn.com/sandcastle/archive/2006/07/29/682398.aspx explains how to create a CHM from xml comments.

    Anand..

  9. NDoc спира да се поддържа. Няма да има версия 2.0 – a NDoc folks announcing that NDoc is dead.

  10. Vimpyboy says:

    Please take a look at my SandCastle Helper i just released. It will help you build the documentation much easier.

    Is it possible to document private members with Sandcastle? If not, is this feature planned for a later version?

  24. NetDave says:

    Am I misunderstanding this? The directions for building a CHM file look like an engine rebuild manual. I was expecting something intuitive like NDoc. There seems to be no documentation in the installation directory. What am I missing?

  25. aram says:

    NetDave,

    This blog is about explaining the details behind the engine.

    If you are an nDoc user you can get the nDoc styled GUI developed by Eric at http://www.codeplex.com/SHFB.

    Please visit http://www.sandcastledocs.com for additional GUIs..etc.

    Anand..

  26. NetDave says:

    Thanks Anand, the CodeProject article is just what I needed. Having used NDoc, I was just overcomplicating what Sandcastle is about.
