GhostDoc – Way of the Samurai

Or was that movie called Ghostdog? Anyway, we haven’t looked at this tool for years, and retried it again recently: GhostDoc. If you don’t know it, take a look at it ( ). It’s a nice tool for auto generating comments. The reason we didn’t like it that much originally, was because we didn’t think the auto generated comments were very helpful. Check out this example and you know what we mean:

/// <summary>
/// Gets or sets the delay in seconds.
/// </summary>
/// <value>
/// The delay in seconds.
/// </value>
public int DelayInSeconds { get; set; }

The reason we fell in love with it this time is because pressing CTRL+A (to select everything, a standard shortcut) followed by CTRL+SHIFT+D (GhostDoc specific) sets up a nice start that allows you to fill in missing information and make the comments more valuable, while saving a lot of keystrokes. On second view, this tool is actually quite handy!
