Go to Tools - VSdocman menu or press VSdocman button on standard toolbar. VSdocman dialog appears, select Project Properties pane. Set Code Members - Member Types page.

 

Compile also non-commented members

Compile also members without XML or javadoc @-style comments. No comment or (if possible) inherited comment is then used.

Accessibility

Check which members with accessibility modifiers will be compiled. Only members with checked accessibility will be compiled. If you create a class library or a control documentation for an end user you usually need to document only public members.

Members

Specify which members (classes, interfaces, methods, events, ...) go to the compilation. Options serve as a filter here.

Option

Meaning

Classes

Include topics for classes. If unchecked, not only topics for classes won't be generated, neither their members such as methods or events will be included.

Forms

Include topics for windows form classes. If unchecked, not only topics for form classes won't be generated, neither their members such as methods or events will be included.

Modules

List forms under separate category

If you view a topic for a namespace and click to the namespace members page, you see all members of that namespace grouped by type: classes, interfaces, enumerations etc. By default all classes that are forms (i.e. they inherit from Form class) are listed under classes. If you check this option, forms will be listed in a separate Forms category instead of Classes.

List inherited members

If you view a topic for a class and click to the class members page, you see all members of that class grouped by type: constructors, methods, properties etc. If this option is unchecked you only see the members that are explicitly defined in this class. If you check this option you will see also all inherited members. These members are marked as inherited.
