How to create XML comments for local variables

Last Modified: 2013-12-17

I'm using MS Visual Studio 2008. The XML comments for classes, methods and properties are very useful and I often rely on the possibility to move my cursor above an identifier and see explanation of what it is. However, I'm missing this functionality for local variables. I can see just their type, name and if they parameter or local variable. Is there any way to get explanatory comments for local variables as well?
