How to get SA1632 violation?

May 26, 2011 at 10:14 PM

What code should report SA1632 violation? I need this as test code, but I can't get any working sample. Anyone?

Are you sure you mean SA1632? SA1632 says: "The documentation text within the summary tag must be at least 10 characters in length or at least 2 words. Documentation failing to meet this guideline most likely does not follow a proper grammatical structure required for documentation text.".


/// <summary>foo</summary>
class Foo

Yes, I'm sure. There were some changes to this rule in SC 4.5. Currently even comment such as:

<summary>A b.</summary>

does not trigger SA1632. I smell a bug here.

Hi, Since changeset '(2658fd6a2891) fix for 6954. Updated tests. SA1632 now not thrown.' rule SA1632 is now no longer thrown at all and is deprecated. The rule that applies here now is must contain whitespace ie. at least 2 words, so "An Id" is fine. I'll update the docs.

Hi Andy,

Have you considered to disable SA1632 by default, similar to SA1628 and SA1629? I think this would be better than the "nuke it" option. Can you change it this way? I personally like SA1632 and don't value such cryptic "An id" doc. Disabling this rule by default would satisfy those who don't like it. Others, including me, could then enable this rule back.

Put SA1632 back in from 4.5.19.

Disabled by default.

Thanks Andy for the fix. Greatly appreciated.
