GhostDoc – automatic generate code documentation

Simplify your XML Comments!

GhostDoc is a Visual Studio extension that automatically generates XML documentation comments for methods and properties based on their type, parameters, name, and other contextual information.

When generating documentation for class derived from a base class or for interface implementation (e.g. .NET Framework or your custom framework), GhostDoc will use the documentation that Microsoft or the framework vendor has already written for the base class or interface.


  • Save keystrokes and time
  • Simplify documenting your code
  • Benefit of the base class documentation

If you follow good naming conventions in your code, then you will get very decent results on the summary GhostDoc generates.  When I see code that is not documented, it is as simple as hit Ctrl-Shift-D to have GhostDoc document it.

Supported IDEs:
 Visual Studio 2010  Visual Studio 2008  Visual Studio 2005
