Why Use Document! X?

Developing accurate documentation, particularly for complex components or database schemas, has traditionally been a time consuming, costly and skills intensive task. Documentation during development can be seen as a moving target and at the end of a project developers are often immediately re-assigned to new development tasks, which can leave most projects poorly documented.

With Document! X, documentation can be automatically produced throughout design and development without requiring investment of developer resources, providing development teams with an accurate and up to date reference and allowing new developers to jump the learning curve of new components and schemas. Document! X makes producing documentation a natural and productive activity for developers and technical writers alike.

  • Fast, accurate, professional quality documentation;
  • Market leading authoring tools for creating supplementary content;
  • Automatically uses source content where available (.NET xml source comments, Web Service Definition descriptions, SQL Server Extended Properties, SQL/T-SQL/PL-SQL source comments, XSD Annotations, Javascript JsDoc or Xml format source comments, Java Javadoc format source comments, COM HelpStrings );
  • Customizable HTML based template driven output can be adapted to your requirements and ships with standard phrases pre-translated to 9 different languages;
  • Generate documentation to HTML Help 1.x (CHM), Help 2.x, Microsoft Help Viewer (Visual Studio Help Format) or web ready pure HTML Browser Help including a full Table of Contents, Index and Full Text Search.

Content Authoring Options

You can choose to author content in your Source Code (using .NET xml source comments, Web Service Definition descriptions, SQL Server Extended Properties, SQL/T-SQL/PL-SQL source comments, XSD Annotations, Javascript JsDoc or Xml format source comments, Java Javadoc format source comments, COM HelpStrings ) and/or using the rich authoring environment of the Content File editor.

This flexibility allows you to include basic documentation in the source code and use the rich Document! X Content File editor to author extended content or make post-development edits.

Visual Studio Integration

Document! X integrates seamlessly with Visual Studio® 2010-2015. Documentation Projects can be created, opened and built directly from your Visual Studio solution. A Visual Comment Editor is included for creating and maintaining your source code comments in Visual Basic .NET, C#, C++/CLI and F# source code.

Author and maintain your Visual Basic .NET, C#, C++/CLI or F# source code comments directly within a preview of how the generated documentation will look.
