I was wondering if anyone knew of some application out there that could read through C# code and spit out a uml schema?  either through the dll the source code or by using the xml autodoc stuff.

Thanks

Write the program, then design the program?  Somewhat backwards don't you think?

Program called WithClass... free demo available, I havn't used it much at all but it seems to work well.  Kind of pricey to purchase, but like I said... free trial.

well I was hoping to have something to look at first and sort of learn UML from and then later on actually start first in UML

The process is called reverse engineering. The latest versions of Visio supports UML and .Net. But you need to have the source code loaded in VS.Net. Then there's a menu option in VS.Net to Reverse Engineer... ;-)

Visio doesn't support UML directly though. To use that feature, you need to get VS.NET Enterprise Architect edition.

I mean that it supports UML stuff but not perfectly i.e. stuff like database and reverse engineering.

One nice application for working with UML is Enterprise Architect (http://www.sparxsystems.com.au/) this can reverse engineer (amongst other things). I've found to be a very useful UML tool. IT can also work with quite a few languages - well worth a look
