Setting the Description of an Add-In

Setting the Description of an Add-In

When you use the Add-Ins project template to build your own add-ins, the description of the add-in appearing in the Add-Ins Manager window is always “My Addin.” It isn’t immediately clear how you can change this string. At first, it seems the string corresponds to the project’s Description property, but it actually corresponds to the Description property of the Connect class.To change this property, press F2 to display the Object Browser, then right-click on the class name and select the Properties menu item. Enter a description in the dialog box and also an HelpContextID for the Class Module. The class description immediately appears in the Object Browser when you click on the class name in the left-most pane.
