Function tooltip descriptions.

When you're working in .NET, and it gives you a list of functions, etc. that could complete what you're trying to type, the functions that are listed are accompanied by a tooltip with a description of what the function does. How can I add my own descriptions to my functions, such that they show up like this?

I know this can be done in C#.NET using XML style documentation, but I need to know how to do it in VB.NET.

Thanks.

To my knowledge, there is no way to do it in VB.NET. This is one of the ways MS tried to push C# so hard...

Yes I don't think it is avaiable on VB.NET

In C# you can do /// but not in BV.NET

im not really sure about this but you might try using the comment character twice like
'' Description
or try putting it three times
''' Description

Hope this helps,
Dan.
