Referencing external classes in a codeEntityReference
Question asked by Jerry Majkowski - 9/17/2018 at 7:50 AM
I am creating custom content that has codeEntityReferences for methods to the help documentation. This works fine for methods with no parameters, or parameters of types that come from System or other known .NET libraries. But if a parameter is referencing an external library that we provide, the link does not work. Is there any way to enable GhostDoc to see library references that are not part of the current solution?
Here is an example reference that does not generate a link. Note that the type Geneva.FidelityWebServices.Models.AccountHolder is in a referenced class that is built in another solution.
<codeEntityReference qualifyHint="false"> M:FidelityApiDataImporter.Program.InsertFidelityAccountHolder (Geneva.FidelityWebServices.Models.AccountHolder, System.String)</codeEntityReference>

Hi Jerry,
This is not possible with the current version of GhostDoc but we added that to our Backlog.
