<value> (C# Programming Guide)




A description for the property.

The <value> tag lets you describe the value that a property represents. Note that when you add a property via code wizard in the Visual Studio .NET development environment, it will add a <summary> tag for the new property. You should then manually add a <value> tag to describe the value that the property represents.

Compile with /doc to process documentation comments to a file.

// compile with: /doc:DocFileName.xml 

/// text for class Employee
public class Employee
    private string _name;

    /// <summary>The Name property represents the employee's name.</summary>
    /// <value>The Name property gets/sets the _name data member.</value>
    public string Name
            return _name;
            _name = value;

/// text for class MainClass
public class MainClass
    /// text for Main
    static void Main()
