CodeCommentStatement Constructor (String, Boolean)

Initializes a new instance of the CodeCommentStatement class using the specified text and documentation comment flag.

Namespace:  System.CodeDom
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

public CodeCommentStatement(
	string text,
	bool docComment
)

Parameters

text
Type: System.String

The contents of the comment.

docComment
Type: System.Boolean

true if the comment is a documentation comment; otherwise, false.

If the docComment parameter is true, the CodeCommentStatement is a documentation comment and the comment is structured using triple delimiter characters. For example, in C# the comment is "///", in Visual Basic "'''". Documentation comments are used to identify an XML comment field, such as a type or member summary identified by the <summary> element.

The following code example demonstrates the use of the CodeCommentStatement(String, Boolean) constructor to create a comment statement to be used as an XML comment field. This example is part of a larger example that follows.

// Declare a new code entry point method.
CodeEntryPointMethod start = new CodeEntryPointMethod();
start.Comments.Add(new CodeCommentStatement("<summary>", true));
start.Comments.Add(new CodeCommentStatement(
    "Main method for HelloWorld application.", true));
start.Comments.Add(new CodeCommentStatement(
    @"<para>Add a new paragraph to the description.</para>", true));
start.Comments.Add(new CodeCommentStatement("</summary>", true));

The following code example demonstrates the creation of a simple "Hello World" console application and the generation of an XML documentation file for the compiled application.
