<value> (Visual Basic)

Specifies the description of a property.




A description for the property.


Use the <value> tag to describe a property. Note that when you add a property using the code wizard in the Visual Studio development environment, it will add a <summary> tag for the new property. You should then manually add a <value> tag to describe the value that the property represents.

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


This example uses the <value> tag to describe what value the Counter property holds.

''' <summary>
''' Resets the value of the <c>Counter</c> field.
''' </summary>
Public Sub ResetCounter()
    counterValue = 0
End Sub
Private counterValue As Integer = 0
''' <summary>
''' Returns the number of times Counter was called.
''' </summary>
''' <value>Number of times Counter was called.</value>
Public ReadOnly Property Counter() As Integer
        counterValue += 1
        Return counterValue
    End Get
End Property
