Generating and viewing reports

At any time, a set of linked HTML reports summarising the analysis status of the solution can be generated and viewed either in external browser or (where supported) inside the development environment.

The simplest way to generate a report is to use the Report command on the Visual Lint toolbar, which will cause a full analysis report to be produced for the current solution.

The report format used is very similar to those generated by our companion product LintProject Professional, and can be customised (in Visual Lint Professional and Enterprise Editions) by configuring Visual Lint to use custom stylesheets (see the Reports page in the Options Dialog).

As the report consists of many linked files (one for the solution itself, and one for each project and implementation file it contains) it can take some time for all files within the full analysis report to be generated. However, the top level solution report will become available almost immediately.
