Symbol.GetDocumentationComments() returns documentation successfully for in source classes/methods/properties, however, it doesn't return documentation for metadata symbols like say a Console.WriteLine symbol.

See on how to resolve this issue.

It would be nice though if there was a DocumentationProvider included in Roslyn that can pull up and parse XML files from the assembly folder or from Program Files/Reference Assemblies.

Hi Sunny,

this is an issue I already mentionend in the "Roslyn" forum regarding the June 2012 CTP. And obviously this has not changed within the latest September CTP. Here you will find more details:

Hope this sheds some light on your concerns as well.

Kind regards
