sdedit – Quick Sequence Diagram Editor

My coworker(his blog is located here) pointed me to this tool and I found it very useful.Quick Sequence Diagram Editor is a tool for creating UML sequence diagrams from textual descriptions of objects and messages that follow a very easy syntax.

Below you may see a syntax example for Sequence Diagram shown in screenshot – it’s very intuitive and easy to understand.


The tool supports actors, constructors, destructors, threads and on-diagram comments that can be used to represent conditions or loops.
Diagrams can be exported in PNG format.

GhostDoc 2.1.0 Released

GhostDoc is a free add-in for Visual Studio that automatically generates XML documentation comments for C#. Either by using existing documentation inherited from base classes or implemented interfaces, or by deducing comments from name and type of e.g. methods, properties or parameters.

What’s New in GhostDoc:
  1. Added: Support for VB.NET has been added again . The feature is turned off by default and you have to turn it on in the config dialog. 
  2. Added: Setup for the demo project now contains a VB.Net version.
  3. Added: Full support for events (configurable default documentation, inherited documentation , and used-defined custom rules)
  4. Added: New macro $(DeclaringTypeKind) that specifies the kind of type a member is defined in (i.e. class, struct or interface).
  5. Changed: All occurrences of "class" in the default templates have been replaced by $(DeclaringTypeKind).
  6. Fixed: Documentation of constructors of structs referring to the initialization of a "class" instance.
  7. Fixed: Problems with parameter names starting with an ‘@’ (e.g. "@class").
