GhostDoc is a free add-in for Visual Studio .Net 2003 that automatically generates XML documentation comments for C# either by using existing documentation inherited from base classes or implemented interfaces, or by deducing them from name and type of e.g. methods, properties or parameters.

  • Thanks for the heads-up, Roland. Our video experts re-encoded it so that the text is now readable.

    Umm... to avoid any disappointments: the current version of the video is virtually unusable. When shooting the video, I took care that the text inside Visual Studio is readable (and the resulting WMV file wasn't too big, 10MB), but the video posted here is not the original video.

    I've already contacted Mike (Swanson), let's hope a new version of the video will be posted.

    Ok, apparently a new, recoded version has been posted. Thanks guys!
    The picture is still slightly distorted, but hey - it makes me look thinner, so I shouldn't complain. The important thing is that the text inside the Visual Studio editor is now readable.
  • Erm.....where'd the download link go...?
  • Can someone add a download link to this video?
  • Santosh Benjaminsantosh_b Benjy
    The link is already available next to the time (0:00:00). It cannot be downloaded  but can be watched in streaming mode.

    Anyway, the quality of this video is not good. the screen image is too tiny to see anything of the tool, but with the background commentary i could just about guess what was going on

    Neat tool. Will definitely use it.
