Website TODO List (misc)

What about implementing the search in the Visual Studio .NET AddIn, and making the search work a little better (search on descriptions, etc and not just on function names)?

Adam Sills

The current list of updates that need to be made to the site.
  • Make the site work well in non-IE browsers
  • Fix the 'ButtonBar' bug
  • Enable an automatic way to add new modules
  • Have a page that lets you select one or more signatures and have it generate a C# or VB file that contains those signatures.

Any other suggestions?

You can increase the contrib rate if you implement some kind of karma system. Developers run on Doritos, coffee, and ego.

When the PInvoke VS AddIn will suport also adding Constants, Enums, Structures, etc...

As I see for now it only supports functions

One thing that I would like to see is a page that lets you select one or more signatures and have it generate a C# file that contains those signatures. --

Good idea! I've added it to the list! -- Adam

You could go a step further and allow someone to generate an entire class for one group type. So if someone wanted all the signatures for user32 generated into one class/file they could... -- Ben S. Stahlhood II (

You could add signatures for VB.NET "declares" and VB.NET samples. It would just be an extra section that would be nice for the vb developper. --Eric

[Note from Adam: Some pages already have this, and it's definitely my intention for all of them to have VB signatures. We just need volunteers to fill them in! ]

<summary> tags in structs

I would like to see a <summary> tag in all elements of a struct like CEOSVERSIONINFO.

Another idea is an offline version. I find your site extremely useful, but internet costs are very expensive here (telephone calls): A periodically updated "snapshot" of this site would really be useful.


I'm working on creating MS Help 2.0 helpfiles based on the content from this wiki. Just a quick solution.. take all the modules and find out the elements/functions each contains and download those. Then create TOC and other help-related files based on that content.. and I end up with a nice help file .

At the moment there is one problem with this solution: The references in the HTML-files are absolute URLs (such as instead of relative URLs which would make the job a lot easier . Now I'm trying to just use SED to replace some of these references. I like that some of the references are absolute (for example those for editing the wiki so if you're online and double-click on the file you can interact with the version at instead of the local version), but image source and such would be easier to handle if they were relative.

When I find it nice enough I'll create a GotDotnet workspace for it. Unfortunately I've got a lot to do now in May (examn-period ), so maybe it's June before it's ready...

I've released a version now, which you can find at Enjoy I don't think I'll open the source, because it's a quick little mess to be honest. But it does the job... I'm not sure how often I'll update it, but I'll watch the RSS feed and when there has been a lot of updates I will update the help file. Please leave comments at the messageboard over at the GotDotnet workspace!

From my work with creating help-files from the wiki I've found a bug.

The tooltip for the page for printing gives a script error.

Great job on that Help file.

Now that It's fully integrated into Vstudio it's amazing ! Just 1 thing for the next "Build" - we need a "Start" Page similar to this site's default page as an opener for the help file. I posted a link to the Help Integration Wizard on the gotdotnet site for the MSI creation.

Then another question: Is it easy to create separate help files - 1 for each section - e.g. "Types & Constants", "Desktop Functions" and "Smart Device Functions" as laid out on the site. This will make the Generated integrated help nicer-looking and more functional.

Adam Sills: Building the integrated helpfile allows you to use the Vstudio Search which will search the PInvoke pages contents as well, and display results along with the other help.
