[Gtk-sharp-list] Inline code help 'intellisense' in VisualStudio

Hello everyone,


When working in VisualStudio.net, the IDE provides some code-completion
features, such as showing you a list of members when you type a period
after an object. For objects in the System or other built-in namespaces,
VS.net also shows a helpful hint about the method. For example, when
visualstudio is displaying the members of the System.String class, the
tooltip for Replace is:


string String.Replace (string oldValue, string newValue) (+ 1 overloads)

Replaces all occurrences of a specified System.String in this instance,
with another specified System.String.


When I am working with an object from gtk-sharp (say a Gtk.Label), and I
view the member list, it does display the method signature, but not the
little explanation.


What I am wondering is if it would be possible to automatically transfer
these types of hints from the monodoc project to this actual library(?)
used in visualstudio, or how a person could contribute the text for
these hints.


Hopefully you can understand what I am trying to ask.


Thanks in advance,
