The MSDN style help files for the DNN framework: a wealth of information for every serious DNN (module) developer. I created a documentation set for DNN 5.4.2. I have used SandCastle Help File Builder to extract all code comments from the source version of the DNN core in order to create this documentation. And since the DNN Reference team has started to improve (create, enhance) the API documentation in de source files, there is more info available than in previous versions of the API help file. If I compare this to previous version of my project (previous DNN versions): more and more is documented in the source. Great!
You will find the results of my work on http://DNNHelpSystem.codeplex.com/. Free to be used for anyone interested.
What can you do with the files that I have created?
If you want to browse help as stand alone version
- Extract the .zip with the .chm file to a local disk
- Double click the .chm file
- Now you can browse all help items MSDN style
If you want to browse it as website based version:
- Extract the .zip with the HTML files to a a folder on a disk
- Double click the index.html file
- If IE, allow it to run blocked content
I left the intellisense .xml files out of this version, since these files are distributed as part of a normal DNN release nowadays. BTW the DNN Reference team is working to provide this .chm file (as well as a MSDN style website) as part of a DNN release as well.
With more than 7.000 downloads of previous versions of the help files: this work appears to be useful to a lot of people! It is great top be part of the DNN reference team to provide you with this documentation.
And while you are there at CodePlex: why not give this project a nice rating?
