Alright here is a tough one.
I am looking for the .Net 2.0 Framework Chart/Diagram.
What do I mean by this.
Im looking for all Providers, classes, properties, methods and events for all the providers. Did microsoft ever release a copy of one? It would be a diagram, chart or picture of all providers.
I downloaded my copy of Visual Studio from the MSDN site and therefore never got a box to help me out with this one. Maybe Visual Studio 2005 has one stored in it somewhere? Been searching for the past few days on this one.
I want to be able to print a huge picture of it and hang it on my wall. Let me know if anyone knows where one is or can get their hands on it. It would look like a database diagram but with providers instead of tables. Im really interested on this one.

I am not aware of any such diagram and even if it is it would be too large to take a printout. What you can do is that look for online free articles on different providers which usually contain class diagrams and take print outs of these, then join them
together for your reference.
Also, in case you are not already aware there is a nice utility called Reflector (http://www.aisto.com/roeder/dotnet/) which lets you see all members of .NET FCL classes in a nice GUI.
Hope this helps,

The 1.0 and 1.1 releasesof Visual Studio (at least the professional and above versions) did come with set of class diagrams for the frame work. The were very large printed on both sides and not very useful if you ask me.You might look for a book like O'Reilly's
Asp.Net in a Nutshell which comes with a namespace reference that includes class diagrams. I don't know if they have a 2.0 version available though.
You could always reflect your way through the framework and create your own... that in itself would turn out to be an interesting project!

I hope you work in an airplane hanger, because you would need the wall space were you to print out the framework class diagram along with all providers. I have been working with the framework since 2002 and still find area's I didn't know about.
As the guys have previously mentioned you could use reflector to tame the beast, or get yourself a good book. I find the MSDN an excellent source for giving me information about classes the only gripe I would have is that I would like to see more examples
and sample usage on there, other than that it holds a lot of answers.
Hope this helps.

Just so you know, I DO WORK IN A HANGER. haha.
Thanks fopr the replies guys. maybe we should contract microsft to get this project done.
As for Reflector, Visual Studio does have somewhat the same thing implemented in it. I was just hoping for a visual Diagram.

Reflector has an addin that will show a dependency chart:
As for class diagrams I do not think it does them (I may be wrong though).
