The XML Documentation section of the Team Options tab allows you to customize the Generate XML Documentation feature:

XMLDocumentation

You can:

  • Select an application (optionally) which will receive the XML file after it has been generated. For example, you can pass the XML file to Microsoft Internet Explorer (IEXPLORE.EXE) to view it, or you can pass it to a custom application which extracts the information from the XML file and inserts it into a database.
     
  • Generate the XML documentation automatically after a build (for Visual Studio, only in Release configuration, not in Debug configuration). To specify the folder where to generate the XML documentation you can use the following predefined variables clicking the Insert > button:

XMLDocumentationPredefinedVariables

  • Select the encoding of the output file, such as utf-16, utf-8, etc.
     
  • Set whether to generate XML documentation for all declarations or only for public declarations.
