VSdocman is an ultimate, fast and easy to use .NET documenting tool for every Visual Studio C# and VB developer.
VSdocman - a .NET documentation compiler - is directly integrated in Visual Studio so it will assist you with complete process of creating a documentation. This includes intelligent semi-automatic commenting of your code elements, creating additional topics (non-API reference) and generating and deploying the documentation.
Based on your settings, VSdocman scans a VS project or a solution, and then it generates the final documentation. It automatically reads namespaces, types and their members. Summary, remarks, parameter descriptions and other content are extracted from XML documentation comments in your code (those that start with /// or '''). The tool will boost your productivity no matter whether you create a class library, a component, a control, an application, a web site (ASP .NET) or any other C#/VB project type.
Move your documenting to the next level
Everything directly in Visual Studio. Save your time, effort and money. With VSdocman, you can generate documentation from the .NET XML comments with just a single mouse click.
Flexible output formats

Let VSdocman automatically comment your code. Don't author the XML comments and common phrases manually. Intelligent comment templates make it significantly easier to write comments.
