Adding guidance into classes for end users

I would like to be able to include a little help into my properties and methods so the end user of the class knows what the property is for e.g
propertytip.jpg
You can see the advice : "Provides a mechanism for enumerating all...."
I would like to be able to introduce this kind of assistance into my own properties.

I struggled with finding an article on this on the web given the generic nature of 'creating help in properties classes .net'
but hopefully it is straightforward....

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

At the start of the property or function you can add summary comments as belw:

''' <summary>
''' Returns the name of the code.
''' </summary>
Function GetName() As String
    Return "Something"
End Function

''' <summary>
''' Returns the number of times Counter was called.
''' </summary>
''' <value>Number of times Counter was called.</value>
Public ReadOnly Property Counter() As Integer
    Get
        counterValue += 1
        Return counterValue
    End Get
End Property
