<para> (Visual Basic)

Specifies that the content is formatted as a paragraph.




The text of the paragraph.


The <para> tag is for use inside a tag, such as <summary>, <remarks>, or <returns>, and lets you add structure to the text.

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


This example uses the <para> tag to split the remarks section for the UpdateRecord method into two paragraphs.

''' <param name="id">The ID of the record to update.</param>
''' <remarks>Updates the record <paramref name="id"/>.
''' <para>Use <see cref="DoesRecordExist"/> to verify that
''' the record exists before calling this method.</para>
''' </remarks>
Public Sub UpdateRecord(ByVal id As Integer)
    ' Code goes here.
End Sub
''' <param name="id">The ID of the record to check.</param>
''' <returns><c>True</c> if <paramref name="id"/> exists,
''' <c>False</c> otherwise.</returns>
''' <remarks><seealso cref="UpdateRecord"/></remarks>
Public Function DoesRecordExist(ByVal id As Integer) As Boolean
    ' Code goes here.
End Function
