<summary> (C# Programming Guide)




A summary of the object.

The <summary> tag should be used to describe a type or a type member. Use <remarks> to add supplemental information to a type description.

The text for the <summary> tag is the only source of information about the type in IntelliSense, and is also displayed in the Object Browser.

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

// compile with: /doc:DocFileName.xml 

/// text for class TestClass
public class TestClass
    /// <summary>DoWork is a method in the TestClass class.
    /// <para>Here's how you could make a second paragraph in a description. <see cref="System.Console.WriteLine(System.String)"/> for information about output statements.</para>
    /// <seealso cref="TestClass.Main"/>
    /// </summary>
    public static void DoWork(int Int1)

    /// text for Main
    static void Main()
