Description Mike Norman 2017-08-17 17:43:38 UTC
The `[SomeEnumeration]Extensions` classes that have `GetValue` and `GetConstant` are ripe for automation. A quick grep for "<summary>" in the relevant sources (-name "*Extensions.xml") would reveal the text we've been using, and the variations could be ironed out into some reasonable, writer-approved, boilerplate.

@Mike can you provide us with the generic _ writer-approved_ text that should be generated ? thanks!

The following:
<summary>Returns the string constant for the enumeration value.</summary>

for GetConstant, and:
<param name="constant">The string for which to return an enumeration value.</param>
<summary>Returns the enumeration value for the provided string.</summary>

for GetValue.

Note that our current text differs, but that the above text is more correct. We, the docs team, can change the existing text.
