Visual Studio Disabling Missing XML Comment Warning

As suggested above, in general I don’t think that these warnings should be ignored (suppressed). To summarise, the ways around the warning would be to:

  • Suppress the warning by changing the project Properties > Build > Errors and warnings > Suppress warnings by entering 1591
  • Add the XML documentation tags (GhostDoc can be quite handy for that)
  • Suppress the warning via compiler options
  • Uncheck the “XML documentation file” checkbox in project Properties > Build > Output
  • Add #pragma warning disable 1591 at the top of the respective file and #pragma warning restore 1591 at the bottom
