Working with Class Diagrams 

Class diagrams help you understand the class structure of projects others have written (or that you wrote a long time ago). You can use them to tailor, share and present project information with others.

The first step in presenting project information is to create a class diagram that displays what you want to show. For more information, see Viewing Types and Relationships on Class Diagrams. You can create multiple class diagrams for a single project that can be used to display a distinct view of the project, a chosen subset of the project's types, or a chosen subset of the members of types.

In addition to defining what each class diagram shows, you can also change the way that information is presented; for more information, see Customizing Class Diagrams.

After you have fine-tuned one or more class diagrams, you can copy them into Microsoft Office documents and print them, or export them as image files. For more information, see How to: Copy Class Diagram Elements to a Microsoft Office Document, How to: Print Class Diagrams and How to: Export Class Diagrams As Images.
