VB.NET Component Context Sensitive Help - HOW??

P: n/a
Ok, I really am going to hit this PC in a minute!

Does anyone know how to add a Description Field to Public Functions,
Procedures and Subroutines of a .NET DLL Component (Not a UserControl) that
will display in the design environment when your component is referenced by
another project (Exactly the same way that any of the Microsoft .NET
Components would i.e. System.Windows.Forms.Binding would pop up a tooltip
stating what the calling parameters are AND a description of what it does
when you hover over it after entering a ".")

I.e. type System.Windows.Forms.Bi which displays the possible functions and
procedures available and hover the mouse over bindings in the list and it
displays what it does.

I have tried <Description("A Description")> but this does not seem to do it
(I have added the lines and compiled it but no Descriptions appear.)

Any help would be much appreciated as I'm sure it is something simple I am
missing - It used tobe easy in VB6 using the Properties Editor on the Tools
Menu!
