I'm looking for a language reference where
I can find documentation similar to JavaDocs
(not the crappy MSDN library)

I need to know the object, what properties it has,
what events it generates, what other objects it
contains etc...

MSDN has everything blown appart and I never
know what properties an object supports.

Does anyone know if such an intelligent reference exists?

I assume you are talking about Office VBA objects. If so, the Object Browser (F2 or View | Object Browser) is a good reference. After locating the object, press F1 for detailed uses, methods, properties, etc.

MSDN can be challenging to navigate! You can find a straightforward tree of the Office object model at the following locations:

OffXP

Off2000
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/odeomg/html/deovrobjectmodelguide.asp?frame=true

Cheers,

wow, i love the search function. I've had this EXACT question for the longest time and I've been too lazy to see it through, until now. I knew about the object browser, but I never thought to Press F1 after finding what I needed to get detailed info!

Thanks for that info. hehe

:doh:
