Compiler Warning (level 2) CS1711

Visual Studio 2008

XML comment on 'type' has a typeparam tag for 'parameter', but there is no type parameter by that name

The documentation of a generic type includes a tag for the type parameter that has the wrong name.

The following code generates warning CS1711.

// cs1711.cs
// compile with: /doc:cs1711.xml
// CS1711 expected
using System;
///<typeparam name="WrongName">can be an int</typeparam>
class CMain
    public static void Main() { }
