Tool Tip Documentation

SyntaxEditor for Windows Forms Forum

Posted 19 years ago by BTAC Developer
I'm still very new to SyntaxEditor, and have been scrutinizingly reviewing the samples, but I'm still confused. For C# and VB.NET, I'd like to retrieve the XML Documentation from an Assembly for an Object or Class and display it in a tooltip (similar to Visual Studio). Any suggestions on how to go about this? And where in the code it would go? I'm very lost... there's just so much information all at once that it's hard to find just what you want.

XML documentation isn't stored in assemblies. When you create a project, you have to option in VS.NET to export XML comment data to a file. I believe Microsoft includes the XML comment files for the System assemblies somewhere in the .NET framework installation however you'll have to search for them.
