When I turned on the feature to output an XML documentation file when building my project I’m confronted with a load of warnings that the XML documentation is missing for some method. While it’s nice to see these warnings I didn’t want to see them anymore without lowering the warning level. So I searched the net and found a way to suppress these warnings:

  • Go to the properties of your project.
  • Go to Configuration Properties | Build
  • Enter the number 1591 in the field labelled ‘Suppress Specific Warnings

I’m still looking for a complete table featuring all the warnings and their code so I can turn off other warnings when I get them.
