Visual Expert can automatically document your code.
The end result is a very comprehensive HTML documentation, detailing every object and its dependencies throughout your application. It can be used as reference manuals for code maintenance, review purpose, and knowledge transfer.
For more details, you can checkout the following samples:
You can schedule the documentation on a regular basis (daily, weekly, monthly) or on a specific time, when your machine is not busy.
This section allows you to indicate the path, content, style, template and language before generating the documentation.
Configure a path from your harddrive to save the documentation.
Click on ‘Browse Folders’ to change the path.
Visual Expert allows you to create a custom style for your HTML documentation.
Click on ‘Edit Styles’ to create a new style. In the dropdown change ‘Novalys Default Style’ with your custom style.

By default Visual Expert generates the documentation for the whole project.
If you need to document only a part of your project, you can select the option ‘Selected Items Only’ in this dropdown.
The documentation will be generated only for the components selected in the Main View.
Select the documentation language from these options - English, French, Spanish and Japanese.
This window allows you to filter out the component types included in the documentation according to their type.
As shown above, for each chosen component type, you can also filter out one or more details as needed.
The changes will be saved for all future documentations for this project on clicking ‘OK’.
This subsection allows you to schedule the documentation daily, weekly, monthly or on a specific time.
Visual Expert considers the current settings for path, style, template, content and language while generating the scheduled documentation.
