Adding summary to object browser?

P: n/a
Does anyone know how to add a summary description for a class module to
the object browser? I can't find anything on it anywhere!

Thanks,

Tom

Adding description to Object browser is the same as adding info to
IntelliSense. You need to create XML file with descriptions and place it
in the same location as your DLL. There are various tools to create this
XML file from your XML comments. See
http://www.vbdocman.com/net/help/ind...ntext_help.htm
for more info.

VB.NET 2002/2003:

Adding IntelliSense tooltips, XML comments, and documentation
<URL:http://dotnet.mvps.org/dotnet/faqs/?id=tooltipsxmldocumentation&lang=en>

VB 2005: XML comments. Simply enter three consecutive single quotes in the
line above a member's or class' declaration.

I still to this day don't understand why they didn't extend this same
concept to the "Description" you see for your control's properties in the
Property Editor. Instead you have to add ANOTHER comment to your code (this
time an "Attribute") in order to have it appear. Seems way redundant to me.

Well, maybe both features have been designed by different teams <bg>.

In different buildings probably too.
