Figure 3. XML Comments Boost Productivity.
In VB 2005, you get XML comments integrated with IntelliSense. This way, you don’t need to browse through the documentation to see what some method or property is doing. This screenshot illustrates the XML comment IDE integration in action. Specifically, you can see the GetItem method is in the background, as well as the same text contained in an XML comment, which the IDE displays as a tool-tip alongside the usual IntelliSense window.
