C++ example

Feb 6, 2011 at 10:27 AM

Hi all,

I am using Sandcastle Help File builder to build documentation from XML files for my .NET assemblies (using the default out the box settings).

I noticed that when the .chm file is produced, it generated C++ examples of the code as well as C# and VB. Is there any way I can get the C++ examples to be generated from my native libraries (which my managed assemblies are wrapping)?

Kind Regards

Sandcastle only works with managed assemblies and there is currently no way to produce help files for unmanaged assemblies using it.  There have been a few threads discussing how it may be possible, but so far it hasn't been pursued.  So, for unmanaged code, you need to use a tool like Doxygen which does support unmanaged C++.
