Version: 24.1.0


If I have a property or method that has an XML Comment, the intellisense shows the Summary tag as I hover over it which is expected.
However, it does not display the "remarks" text which can be useful information to display to a user.

In the example below the remarks "This will not be saved." is not displayed as part of the intellisense.

''' <summary>
'''  The Tag property can be used to attach another value or object to this object.
''' </summary>
''' <remarks>
'''  This will not be saved.
''' </remarks>
Public Property Tag() As Object
    Return mTag
  End Get
  Set(value As Object)
    mTag = value
  End Set
End Property

Visual Studio does display the information from the "remarks" node as well as other nodes.

Is there anyway this can be displayed too?

Kind regards

Hi Gavin,

Yes we will update our IntelliPrompt tips to include remarks sections if available.  This will be in the next build.

Please note that Microsoft may exclude the remarks sections from some of the VS-generated doc comment .xml files.  Therefore this feature might only work with project references and not all assembly references.
