Intellisense not picking up summary tag info in other lib

Joe
I have the XML Documentation File property set to the name of my library.
The file seems to build correctly and appears in the Debug folder of that
library. When I add that library project as a reference to another
application, the XML gets put in the debug file of the 2nd application but
doesn't show up as a intellisense tooltip it only displays in the object
inspector.

Any thoughts?

Hi Joe,

First of all, I would like to confirm my understanding of your issue. From
your description, I understand that you need your comments in the class
library to be shown in intellisense. If there is any misunderstanding,
please feel free to let me know.

As far as I know if you need the intellisense to be displayed, you have to
redistribute the comment .xml file together with your class library. Also
they have to be the same in file name. For example, if we have
ClassLibrary1.dll, we should have ClassLibrary1.xml for comments file. If
we put these to files in the same folder and add reference to that
assembly, the comments will be shown in intellisense.

Please check the following link for more information:
