The C# XML comment <summary> in the mouseover popup is only shown for the current solution

Comments in referenced libraries are not shown, although the generated IL Code after a "Go To Definition" does show them, so the DLL has all the info. Generating an XML Documentation file for that DLL does not make a difference.

Hi Roland,

Thank you for the example. Is it possible to take a look at the library RnR.UI you are using? I did not manage to find in google.
There is one hypothesis: this library does not contain <AssemblyName>.xml file which is used for getting documentation into Quick Doc.

Nope, that is a commercial library.

>this library does not contain <AssemblyName>.xml file
Bingo! Should have checked that first (facepalm emoji).
