3.0.5
12 May 2011

Create HTML docs from ActionScript class files.

Overview

Note: VisDoc is no longer under development, and it is no longer available for sale.

VisDoc generates html documentation from ActionScript 2.0 class files.

  • VisDoc integrates a smart processor to parse class files - you don't need to prepare or rewrite your classes. Even if you don't use doc comments, you can generate handy class documentation with a Table of Contents.
  • Class relations mean everything. VisDoc links interfaces, superclasses and their methods and properties to give a quick overview how classes are connected.
  • Flexibility is built in: documentation pages are formatted with editable templates (XSL and CSS). Just customize to have your own layout and style.
  • Changed some classes? Start up the application and hit the Process button - VisDoc remembers all your settings from the last time. You can also save these settings in a project file, so you can use multiple projects without changing settings inbetween.
  • For even more speed, update only modified or added files. VisDoc detects which files have been updated since the last run, and can process only those.
Features
  • Parses methods, properties, class type, superclasses, interfaces
  • Groups Class methods, Instance methods, Event handlers, Class properties and Instance properties
  • Optionally lists private members (toggable)
  • Parses "get" and "set" methods as property variables; recognizes cases when get and set use different variable types
  • Parses Javadoc-style comments, with additional tags
  • Links superclasses and interfaces
  • Links inherited methods and properties from all superclasses
  • Links classes in member definitions (parameters and return types)
  • Inherits comments from superclasses
  • Lists component metadata
  • Processes multiple documents, multiple folders, recursively
  • Resolves included scripts, recursively
  • Recognizes duplicate files (duplicate class paths) - only uses the newest
  • No additional markup needed: @class, @method and @property tags are not required
  • Support for html formatted text inside doc comments
  • You can use leading asterisks in comments or leave them out and save typing.
  • White space in code examples is preserved; example XML text is preserved
  • Cleanly designed default layout of documentation
  • ... with scalable font sizes
  • ... fully customizable, based on XSL
  • ... skinnable with CSS
  • ... default output is XHTML strict, W3C validated
  • XSL and CSS are editable within the app
  • Full code colorizing support
  • Optionally generate index page (frameset) with Table of Contents
  • ... set custom index page title
  • Optionally add prefix to files
  • Optionally save as xml
  • Adds modification date of the class file
  • Adds creation date of the documentation file
  • Add your own copyright to the pages
Application features
  • Save and load project files
  • Update added and modified files only - file modifications are detected automatically
  • View parsing results in a Log window, to get notified of invalid files or broken @see and @link references. Save log reports to a file
  • Immediately view output in browser
  • Edit your custom CSS and XSL styles in the application
  • Italian and German localizations

Version 1.1.2

I've used this for a few years now, and it just isn't stable. On any computer. When it works, the output is excellent, very pretty and the features in the HTML are great. But throw a large number of classes at it, and it crashes. Just try documenting a large library, to get prettier docs, and it crashes. Try it again, it crashes. This has been for every version I've used. The interface is slightly clunky with quirks galore. I would much prefer this to be a wrapper around ASDOC or AS2API with the pretty HTML.

The current version, from 3.0 upwards, is a complete rewrite of the old version (that hit the limit of system memory due to the handling of user preferences by Cocoa). This version is also completely free.
