Generating diagrams with Sandcastle? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there any way to create diagrams with Sandcastle?

    I mean like Doxygen generates DOT language and using GraphViz creates diagrams that are embedded to the generated help file.

    Of course I could use Doxygen, but I kind of like Sandcastles VS2005 layout better.

  • Wrth,

    Sandcastle does not generate diagrams. Intenally we use graphic packages to generate diagrams and embed them during build.

    If you can provide deatils on DOxygen process or provide pointers I willbe happy to take a look to see what we can do to provide a similar functionality if we can.

  • First: Thanks for quick reply!

    Here is a link to diagrams Doxygen generates: http://www.stack.nl/~dimitri/doxygen/examples/diagrams/html/class_e.html

    Doxygen generates a DOT language description of the inheritance or collaboration of classes and then passes it to GraphViz.

    Those simple visualizations are of a valuable tool when bringing a new person to a project that has been in the works for some time.
