I don't know about ones that plug into Vstudio, but doxygen is pretty good.

you can try doxygen. It dosen't plug into visual studio but its very easy to use. Just give it the root directory of your source fiels and walla.

For visual C++ there is "doxybar" plugin which creates and runs the nessesary file for doxygen.. have a look for it at sourceforge.net
I use it and think its pretty good :)
You will have to download doxegen and doxybar.. it's not that large tho ;)

Thanks for the suggestions. I downloaded doxygen and I'll start looking into setting up my project to use it.

by the way, when doxygen is mentioned this moment:

does anyone know a forum or something else ?

i do really need an essential information about how to put a link to a file directly in the left treeview, below all items, as no "expanding"-node, but as pure link.
for example:

+ Classes
- MyClass1
- MyClass2
- MyClass3

+ Datatypes
- MyDataType1

- just_a_new_htmldoc_link_here_without_expanding_tree_node


i tried already mailing the author, but i didn't get any response; even with the second mail, no answer.
i read the manual, but no help on this topic.
perhaps it may be impossible, but *sigh* then it would cool if the author could have mentioned this.

any hints ?

Could be. But then both documentations came from same template.

I'm not sure if this helps much... doxygen can output the docs in XML and perl formats, which can be run through a filter to customize layouts and such.

I've been using Enterprise Architect for my documentation. It's a paid app, but it's one the cheapest UML programs I've found to boot. But UML greatness aside, it still produces great docs from UML charts at the simple click of a button
