Changing the display of default Namespace name

Hi,

I want to display a different text for the Namespace name instead of the default text that is displayed from code.

For example: The actual Namespace name in the code is Test
I want this text to be changed to - Operations.

In the help output the namespace is displayed as follows:
Test Namespace

I want this to be displayed as:
Operations Namespace.

Is there a way to make this change?

Also, is it possible to change the name of the Class in the Help output?

Thanks,
Anita

Changing namespace and class names is not an option. The point, after all, being to document the code so people know what namespaces and classes to use based on what the assemblies actually contain. That said, you could probable develop a plugin that lets you specify the namespaces and class names to rename and then have it go through the reflection data and change them all. You'd have to go through all the conceptual topics and XML comments files as well to rename all code entity references to maintain the proper links so it would be no small task.

You could do as I did, insert a name mapping xsl transformation before the execution of the transform manifest project. Related post.
