Graphically documenting VB or VC# programs
« on: November 13, 2011, 09:00:49 pm »
Hi,
I am new to the forum. Referring to VB or VC# programs, as in Serial Port Complete: could anyone recommend some (if possible cheap or free) tool to graphically document each program?
Thanks for the help.

In Visual Studio, open a solution and in the Solution Explorer, select a project name under Solution. One of the little icons that appears under "Solution Explorer" is "View Class Diagram." Click it. In the diagram that appears, for each block, you can click the arrows for more detail.

Is that the kind of thing you're looking for?

Thanks Jan, I'm sorry for the late reply but I've been on travel last week-
The class diagram is helpful, but I was thinking of some way of graphically documenting (for example) user interaction with the program - something like an old-time flow diagram for a Windows environment. Has anyone seen this? Am I missing something obvious?
Thanks again

I don't know of anything, but that doesn't mean it doesn't exist somewhere.
