SHFB Default 2022 Presentation Style - Coming Soon

exclude

This element is used to indicate that a particular type or member should be excluded from the documentation.

Syntax

This top-level element is valid on all types and type members.

 
<exclude />

Remarks

This element takes precedence over all other visibility options and the type or member will not appear in the resulting help file at all.

  Note

This is a custom XML comments element implemented by the Sandcastle Help File Builder. It will not appear in the list of valid elements for XML comments IntelliSense.

This element has been deprecated in favor of using the project's API Filter project property to exclude members. The help file builder will translate members with this element into an API filter entry. Be aware that if used on an overloaded member, all versions of the overloaded member will be removed from the documentation due to the way the API filter works in Sandcastle.

Example

 
/// <summary>
/// This method will not appear in the help file even though it is public.
/// </summary>
/// <exclude />
public void UndocumentedMethod()
{
}
