XML code comments with VB.Net standard ??

Hi all,

I have just installed the latest version of VBCommenter, but from what I can
make out it seems it is not useable in VB.net standard.
According to the docs you will only get comments displayed in the IDE if you
reference a dll. However vb.net standard cannot compile class libraries, so
I am therefore unable to get VBCommenter to build the XML file for a dll.

I do compile my own class libraries via the command line. Can VBCommenter be
used from the commandline ?? There is no mention in the docs.
If not is there another program that can ??

Or should I just wait for vb2005?? :P

thanks
Steve

Steve,

When you are intended to use VB2005 soon, than I think it is better to wait.
This is spoiling time.

Just my thought,

I guess if the format turns out to be different to what the vb2003 plugins
use then it would be a big hassle converting all your comments over.. Then
again there will probably be conversion utils to do the job

thanks

XML comments in VB 2005 will be equal to those known from C#, but they will
be preceeded with three single quote characters instead of three slashes.

So the default header inserted by VBcommenter should be fine ??
