Functions and Design-Time tooltips...

P: n/a
Hi guys,

I'm just about to release a class library full of functions to my
development team, and was just wondering - for a bit of finesse and to help
the guys out at design-time - is there any way for me to create my own
function description tooltips that will be shown in the VS.NET code view
when they use my functions? I've not really had much exposure to metadata
before, so any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,
Anth

There are some tools available which can be used to generate the XML file
required for the tooltips:

-> section "VB Commenter"

XML Documentation

Herfried,

Thanks for the resources - the XML Documentation tool seems to do the trick!

Job done!
