.Net 2.0 Xml Documentation Generation

Hi all,
does anyone know of any tools which can be used with .Net 2.0 to create
XML documentation. There used to be a tool in VS2003 which would do this,
but it is not in 2005 and I also used to use NDoc but that does not support
2.0 (only a subset). Seems to me like there is nothing out there to do this
at the moment, do other people not find this documentation useful?

Mark.

You might want to re-check the NDOC status for .NET 2.0 here:

VS 2005 does have this feature.

Ex.

/// <summary>
/// Clean up any resources being used.
/// </summary>
protected override void Dispose( bool disposing )
{

then you have to set the Project settings so that it compiles the XML
Documentation whenever u compile ur program, u can find the XML document in
your bin\debug or release folder.

You can turn on XML documenation compilation by right clicking the project
file in the solution explorer, clicking properties and then on the screen
that comes click on the Build tab then Check the XML documenation file
checkbox and specify the filename.

Hi Alex,
thanks for the reply. I should have been a little bit clearer, I wanted
a program that can produce graphical output like html from the Xml
Documentation.

Thanks
Mark.

Hi Peter,
thanks for the reply. I had looked at this link, unfortunately at the
moment there does not seem to be any support for VS2005 solutions and
projects and not full 2.0 compatibility. Guess I wil have to wait a bit.

Thanks
Mark.
