This plugin allows you to create links to classes within doxygen-generated documentation.

Syntax Rules

%DOX{classname[displayName] project="optionalProjectName"}%


syntax example result
%DOX{classname}% %DOX{nKernelServer}% nKernelServer [bad link?]
%DOX{path/to/html}% %DOX{nebulacollide/html/collide_usage.html}% nebulacollide/html/collide_usage.html
%DOX{classname[displayName]}% %DOX{nKernelServer[The Kernel]}% The Kernel [bad link?]

Where classname is the case sensitive name of the class you wish to link to. For example nKernelServer [bad link?] creates a link like this nKernelServer [bad link?].

If you wish to link to a specific function or other API page, then you can use %DOX{path}% where path is the path to the html file relative to /doc/doxydoc/. For example if you wished to link to /doc/doxydoc/nebulacollide/html/collide_usage.html then you would type %DOX{nebulacollide/html/collide_usage.html}% to get a link like this nebulacollide/html/collide_usage.html.

To have the link display text other than the class name or file path, put the alternative text in square brackets like this %DOX{nKernelServer[The Kernel]}%, which would display as The Kernel [bad link?]

DoxygenPlugin Global Settings

  • Set SHORTDESCRIPTION = Creates links to doxygen-generated docs using %DOX{classname}%.
    • Set DEBUG = 0

  • default project if repository isn't specified in the plugin parameters (case doesn't matter here because it all gets uppercased anyway)
