TOPIC: Microsoft's new Browser access to API documentation

Microsoft's new Browser access to API documentation 1 year 3 months ago #4159

Hi guys, Team and all,

Are you guys aware of this 'new'? web link / site ??

Note the modern version numbers too.



Try these links :-

docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/dotnet/api/?view=netframework-4.7.1

" docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/dotnet/api/?view=netframework-4.7.1 "

As much as context help seems good etc., it would seem that the way forward for MS and all is a web based information delivery.

If they are to keep their documentation right up to date then they need one place in which to do it.

Have a look at the site and see how easy it is to move through the Namespaces available.

Hope this interests a few ;-0)

Hi Phil,

Yes, I think it was Karl or Wolfgang who had mentioned this some time ago and I made it the default context sensitive help source in XIDE. The old msdn help is still available though:

msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system....ylist(v=vs.110).aspx
docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/api/syst...w=netframework-4.7.1

not sure why they needed to do another place, I assume at some point those will be merged?

Hi Phil,

I'm using this page for at least a year now, and there was other people referencing it over the last months, including Chris, Karl Faller and myself, and I had also posted a link to it in the X# Documentation Project: https://docs.xsharp.it/doku.php?id=where_to_find_help

The best thing on this pages is that they have a lot of samples - a very useful feature.

I hate only one thing: with my browser, it changes to "de-de" all the time, and when I have to put links somewhere, I have to change it always to "en-us" for the english version.

But thanks for posting this: I hope that more and more people discover this very helpful resource.

Sorry Robert and guys,

I seem to have left the old heading in my new post.

Why does a new posting start with all the old headings and body content ?

Seems odd to me.

PLEASE Robert can you change the old/wrong heading to something like "Microsoft's new Browser access to API documentation" - or - something you think is better ?

Thanks for listening,
Phil.

Phil,

I think you got the old heading because your browser uses 'Auto complete' or something like that.
Anyway, I will change the heading.
