Object Browser Descriptions

P: n/a
If I click on an item in the Object Browser, the description pane displays a
brief help-text for the item. I'm certain that I can add this useful
description to my class members by applying some attribute to my property or
method, but I'm not sure what Attribute class I should be looking for.

Anyone have a hint?
