how to handle documentation sources in different locations in release and debug

Jan 21, 2012 at 2:28 AM

I don't see a way of changing the path to the documentation sources so that one project handles documentation sources in different locations for different configurations, specifically different for debug and release builds.  How might I do that, without copying the files to a common location?

If you're referring to SHFB, just change the configuration and platform settings in the toolbar or pass them in on the command line.  As long as you are using a solution or project file as the documentation source, SHFB will pick up the assembly and XML comments files based on the current platform and configuration settings.

Thanks Eric, the problem was that I was using the assembly and XML files explicitly instead of the project files.  Now it works fine :).
