Showing help text for functions in intellisense dropdown...

Hello,
Is there any way to give some description strings to the functions of my
class so that whenever the functions are shown in the intellisense dropdown
in the IDE, those descriptions are shown with the normal signature of the
function ?
I tried adding the <DataSysDescription("My Description")> attribute to
my functions, but this doesn't seem to work. Anyone ?
