Intellisense Descriptions

P: n/a
I'm trying to get descriptions for my properties and methods inside my
classes to appear in Intellisense. I'm using VB.Net, does any know how to do
this...? If so an example would be very much appreciated...

Thanks,

Dan

You need to use XML documentation, which isn't available in the current
version of VB.NET as it is. However, there are plug-ins you can get to
support it. See

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