XML Document Generator Tool Property Pages 

The XML Document Generator Tool property page exposes the functionality of xdcmake.exe. xdcmake.exe merges .xdc files into an .xml file when your source code contains documentation comments and /doc (Process Documentation Comments) (C/C++) is specified,. See Recommended Tags for Documentation Comments (C++) for information on adding documentation comments to source code.


xdcmake.exe options in the development environment (property pages) differ from the options when xdcmake.exe is used at the command line. For information on using xdcmake.exe at the command line, see XDCMake Reference.

Suppress Startup Banner

Suppress copyright message.

Validate IntelliSense

Perform correctness check on tags that could be used by Visual Studio IntelliSense.

Additional Document Files

Additional directories in which you want the project system to look for .xdc files. xdcmake will always look for .xdc files generated by the project. Multiple directories can be specified.

Output Document File

The name and directory location of the .xml output file. See Macros for Build Commands and Properties for information on using macros to specify directory locations.

Document Library Dependencies

If your project has a dependency on a .lib project in the solution, you can process .xdc files from the .lib project into the .xml files for the current project.

For more information on Project Dependencies Dialog Box.

Use UNICODE Response Files

Enables Unicode characters in filenames. If the .cpp file containing document comments uses Unicode characters, the .xdc file name will use those Unicode characters.

For more information, see Unicode Support in the Compiler and Linker.
