    Code:
    /// <summary>
    /// This is MyMethod, and it does stuff :)
    /// </summary>
    /// <param name="a">'A' is the first parameter, where you 
    /// should put Object number 1</param>
    /// <param name="b">'B' is the second parameter, where you 
    /// should put Object number 2</param>
    public void MyMethod(object a, object b)
    For more information:

    Edit: If you actually want the 'Description' attribute for reflection or something, you can't use it on parameters. Attributes can only be used on classes, properties, fields, methods and constructors - not parameters. That would be like placing an attribute on a local variable - kinda silly.
