I'm having trouble getting intellisense to show my summaries of my methods and variables. I have a DLL that I will be releasing to my developer team soon and without the intellisense working they won't know 100% what everything is for. They will just have a simple hint from the name of the method or variable.

/// <summary>
        /// This method does something.
        /// </summary>
        /// <param name="sender">This is the first parameter.</param>
        /// <param name="e">This is the second parameter.</param>
        private void timer1_Tick(object sender, EventArgs e)
            if (Ethernet.InternetConnection)
                label1.Text = "Connected";

                label1.Text = "Disconnected";

This is just from my current test application that I'm writing. But I've tried it multiple times with my custom DLL and it doesn't show up when I'm accessing methods or variables or classes in other projects using it.

Does it work on other machines?
Sometimes IntelliSense loses "its mind", but later comes back.

If you put that class on another machine, it will probably show properly.

Also, if there is a .NCB file in the project, delete it and let it rebuild.
-- this might only be present with C++ projects, though.

...and I don't specifically remember seeing IntelliSense pop-up for objects where I have the source code active in my current project (I'll need to test this).

I do remember seeing it for objects I created as class libraries and then referenced.
