<see> (Visual Basic)

Specifies a link to another member.


<see cref="member"/>  


A reference to a member or field that is available to be called from the current compilation environment. The compiler checks that the given code element exists and passes member to the element name in the output XML. member must appear within double quotation marks (" ").


Use the <see> tag to specify a link from within text. Use <seealso> to indicate text that you might want to appear in a "See Also" section.

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


This example uses the <see> tag in the UpdateRecord remarks section to refer to the DoesRecordExist method.

''' <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
