Third-Party Build Components

  • The Sandcastle Help File Builder contains the following custom build components:

    • The Code Block Component used to colorize code blocks and add optional line numbering and collapsible sections.

    • The Help Attributes Component used to insert additional HTML Help 2 attributes into reference topics.

    • The IntelliSense Component used to generate XML comments files for use as IntelliSense in Visual Studio.

    • The Show Missing Documentation Component used to add "missing documentation" notes to reference topics and to auto-document constructors.

    • A set of cached build data components that cache key information such as comment, reflection index information, and MSDN URLs across builds in order to speed them up.
