    Mass Commenting?

    is there any way to make large comments, like the /* */ in c, or a hotkey to comment highlighted lines?

    VB has its own "block comments" feature:

    OR

    - right click on the toolbar and select Customize
    - select Commands tab
    - select Edit from the Categories
    - select "Comment Block" and/or "Uncomment Block" from the Commands list
    - drag/drop either on the VB IDE toolbar
    - new button will be created for each ...

    Re: Mass Commenting?

    Another method is to do line continuations:
    VB Code:
    1. 'This comment _
    2. will span _
    3. a few _
    4. lines.
    chem

    Thanks for the information. I never knew about this functionality within the VB IDE.

    Is there a key shortcut to use this functionality like there is in Enterprise Manager's SQL IDE?

    Here is a little-known feature of VB. You can create your own shortcuts!

    1. Right click on the Comment Block Icon
    2. Choose Customize
    3. Right click on Comment Block Icon a second time
    4. Choose Image and Text
    5. Right click on Comment Block Icon a third time
    6. Add an ampersand in front of "Comment Block" in the Name: box so that it looks like &Comment Block
    7. Repeat for UnComment Block winding up with &UnComment Block
    8. Close the Customize window


    Alt-C and Alt-U will now comment and uncomment your highlighted text

    Yes it is working, but for uncomment, dont put & in front of U, because Alt+U is already assigned to Query menu.

    Furthermore, check if you are not pressing CTRL in place of ALT.

    Yes you can do that by Add-in named (MZ-Tools) , I can't imagine that there is a VB developer don't know it : http://www.mztools.com/

    For me I adjusted it to Comment/ Un-Comment via Shift+Ctrl+C / Shift+Ctrl+U
