Fonts and Colors XML Attribute Color Issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • Just recently moved from VS2013 to VS2017.  In 2013, you could set the color of your entire /// comment to the same value.  However, in 2017, I can't figure out how to set the color for the param name value.  No matter what value I select for all the XML Comment entries, it remains BLACK. In Visual Studio 2013, this was set using XML Doc Attribute and 2017 doesn't have this exact value per se.  I have changed all the XML settings and none of them seem to have any effect.

    According to Microsoft documentation it should be available. 

    Has this value been moved, renamed, removed?

  • Seems to work well for C# files, but is limited in case of C++.

    What kind of projects and files did you check?
