How to make intellisence show for your own written class???

P: n/a
Help!

I'm a newbie, and would like some info on this please: I have a project
that requires me to write my own class. So far everything is working well,
my class is working and compiling just fine. However, it sure would be nice
to be able use the methods and properties from my class and have the
'intellisence' show up when I use them in VisualStudio. BTW, I am using
VS2003.

I have tried to do the 'three slashes' so that I can enter the 'summary' and
'returns' information. This is working just fine, but when I try to use my
class in the Winform I'm writing I cannot see any of the comments I've
entered.

So, is there a special setting that I have to turn on when compiling the
class? Please, any help on this would be highly appreciated.

regards,
joe

You have to export the documentation of your assembly.
You can do this by changing your project's settings. You specify the file
name of
the documentation file and where VS should place your file. If you specify
your filename as:
myAssembly.dll.xml and put that file into the same directory as your
assembly then
intellisense will find your comments.
