I've been trying to find a way to assign helpstrings for Enums in Visual Basic. The Class builder utility does that only for methods, events, and properties, but not for Enums.
The IDL source code that corresponds to an Enum in a type library looks something like follws, and you can run the MIDL compiler on this IDL to make a typelib that include help strings for Enums and thus has a more professional look.
Run the following command to generate aspmtnsms.tlb
typedef [uuid(742F2A4D-8B13-4DF0-905E-91D03769A49C), version(1.0),
helpstring("Enums for ASPMtnSms")]
[helpstring("Auto login")] <<<--- INSERT this helpstring
amsAutoLogin = 0
Unfortunately, there is no way - or at least I can't devise it - to incorporate this into a VB component (dll) instead of a stand-alone type library.
MIDL aspmtnsms.dll /mktyplib203
