# <paramref> (C# Programming Guide)

## Syntax

<paramref name="name"/>


## Parameters

name
The name of the parameter to refer to. Enclose the name in double quotation marks (" ").

## Remarks

The <paramref> tag gives you a way to indicate that a word in the code comments, for example in a <summary> or <remarks> block refers to a parameter. The XML file can be processed to format this word in some distinct way, such as with a bold or italic font.

Compile with /doc to process documentation comments to a file.

## Example

// compile with: -doc:DocFileName.xml

/// text for class TestClass
public class TestClass
{
/// <summary>DoWork is a method in the TestClass class.
/// The <paramref name="int1"/> parameter takes a number.
/// </summary>
public static void DoWork(int int1)
{
}

/// text for Main
static void Main()
{
}
}
