# <value> (Visual Basic)

Specifies the description of a property.

## Syntax

<value>property-description</value>


## Parameters

property-description
A description for the property.

## Remarks

Use the <value> tag to describe a property. Note that when you add a property using the code wizard in the Visual Studio development environment, it will add a <summary> tag for the new property. You should then manually add a <value> tag to describe the value that the property represents.

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

## Example

This example uses the <value> tag to describe what value the Counter property holds.

''' <summary>
''' Resets the value the <c>Counter</c> field.
''' </summary>
Public Sub ResetCounter()
counterValue = 0
End Sub
Private counterValue As Integer = 0
''' <summary>
''' Returns the number of times Counter was called.
''' </summary>
''' <value>Number of times Counter was called.</value>
Public ReadOnly Property Counter() As Integer
Get
counterValue += 1
Return counterValue
End Get
End Property
