How do you quickly find the URL for a .NET framework method on MSDN?
How to you find the URL that represents the documentation of a .NET framework method on the MSDN website?
For example, I want to embed the URL for the .NET framework method into some comments in some code. The normal "mangled" URL that one gets searching MSDN isn't very friendly looking: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/xd12z8ts.aspx. Using a Google search URL isn't all that pretty looking either.
What I really want a URL that can be embedded in comments that is plain and easy to read. For example,
// blah blah blah. See http://<....>/System.Byte.ToString for more information
A lot of the time you can merely append the lowercase namespace reference to the domain:
Moreover, for say the .Net 2.0 version (or any specific version) you can add "(VS.80)":
- .Net 1.1 -> (VS.71)
- .Net 2.0 -> (VS.80)
- .Net 3.0 -> (VS.85)
- .Net 3.5 -> (VS.90)
Try it for a method (Control.IsInputChar) like so: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.windows.forms.control.isinputchar.aspx
