Using the application

Doubleclick several items in the light green list of .NET Framework 4 assemblies to add them to the white list. Click green round button. Now the tree of .NET Framework 4 exported types for the chosen assemblies appear on a beige background. For example, mscorlib contains 1219 exported types, which derived from System.Object, and its tree appears after 13 seconds on my display. Each item on this tree contains two buttons. If you click a button with a name of a type, this type appears on the bisque background below with all its parents. If you click on the narrow button below, this type appears on the bisque background with all its parents and descendants which appear on the beige background. If you click a button with a name of a type on the bisque background, this type disappears on the bisque background with all its descendants. If you click on the narrow button below on the bisque background, only descendants of this type disappear. Doubleclick an item of the white list of assemblies to remove it. Click Save as XPS button to save a resultant poster on the bisque background. The saved poster has a printer friendly white background. Please, choose Microsoft XPS Document Writer on the Print dialog. In Windows XP, set the default program to open xps files to Internet Explorer and view and print the customized poster using Internet Explorer. In Windows 7 there is XPS Viewer. It says "This page cannot be displayed" for large files due to an error. Convert your xps file to read-only and use a free XPS Annotator to view and print. You can convert xps to pdf online. Search searches type names and namespace names framing the found on the trees and framing assemblies which contain appropriate types and namespaces. Search is case sensitive. Query strings must be of length 3 or more. Click Add found button to add found to the bisque background. Click the small green ^ button to add found with descendants.
