Has anyone add help files to linked libraries in VS? Thus, when hovering or writing methods, their description from reference files (API Help) is displayed.
The API interop libs do not ship with XML documentation. The only way for you to do this to extend all SOLIDWORKS API objects with your own XML comments. There are more than 200 interfaces and probably hundreds of methods to extend. This can be a long undertaking.
"The API interop libs do not ship with XML documentation"
mmm...It is obvious
Maybe I did not quite correctly formulate my question, but:
long time ago i find this API: How to integrate the SolidWorks API Help file with MSDN
and now I want to know what this topic gives?
Never tried that but I believe it would open the API Help on the method/interface when you hit F1 from within Visual Studio. So it would open new instance of help file rather than having in-context tooltip.
I think so too.
Did anybody try this?
