How to list Derived Classes?

I'd like to add a link to a list of derived classes (if any) of any given base class.

For instance, the MSDN help page for System.Windows.Forms.Control has a link to a list of all derived classes.

http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.windows.forms.control(VS.71).aspx

I've searched the SHFB docs and haven't seen any hint though

mentions that the issue - "No separate Derived Classes topic for inheritance hierarchy section" - was fixed.

Thanks!

The inheritance hierarchy is listed at the bottom of each class's topic page. They're listed individually rather than as a link to a page containing a list. That would require a modification to the Sandcastle presentation style transformations. You can post a request over in the Sandcastle project (http://www.codeplex.com/Sandcastle).
