making multiple line notes in VB editor

P: n/a
Hello,

Is it possible to make multiple line notes in the VB editor?

I know about using the apostrophe ' to make a single line note.

Is there a version for making multiple lined notes?

If I wanted to make 5 lines of code into notes, so that they wouldn't
be compiled, could I put something in front and after to make them
into notes?

Thanks,

Franc.

Sure.
If your VB Editor screen doesn't already have the tool buttons, add
them
You'll find them in the Edit command section of the Customize Tool Bar
dialog. It's the Comment Block and Uncomment Block tool buttons.
After adding them to the VB Editor tool bar, select the lines wanted
and click the appropriate tool button.

As mentioned there is a button that will on comment, or uncomment a whole
block of text you type in to the editor (what this feature does is simply
put those single apostrophes in front of the text for you).

Unfortunately there's no way of having a block of text as a comment without
the ' in front....
