Generating documentation from code with Team Build
Brian Keller replied to an internal email thread discussing generating documentation from code as part of a build. If you are looking to do the same, these links should be helpful. Here’s what Brian wrote.
I just wanted to point out that there are several MSBuild targets available for Sandcastle which should make it pretty straightforward to integrate with Team Build. I was actually at one of my customer’s offices yesterday and they were showing me that they had integrated Sandcastle with their build process and it looked quite good. I haven’t tried using these targets yet so I can’t tell you which one is best, but between the three of them you should find something which works for your customer:
