VB.Net XML Comments and Intellisense for COM?

P: n/a
Hey All,

I have added my XML comments to my VB.Net solution and from within VS2005
they show up quite nicely in the Object Browser, etc.

However, when the class library is referenced from a COM app, the procedure
attributes do not show up.

Is there a way to fix this?

Thanks,

TC

The COM helpstrings are taken from DescriptionAttributes on your
methods, not from XML docs.

Thanks Mattias!

I see now... just use 'System.ComponentModel'.

Simply type the opening angle bracket '<' and the 'Description' attribute is
available.

Thanks Again,

TC
