Comment Block Macros

Do you find that it is much easier to comment or uncomment a block of code in Visual Basic editor? I wrote a couple of macro routines to do the same for Visual C++ editor. When you select a block of code and click on CommentBlock toolbar button, the selected text will be commented out with '//'. When you click on UncommentBlock toolbar button, the selected text will be uncommented if it was commented out with '//'.

To install the macro file, download it to your Visual Studio macro directory. This is usually C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\Common\MSDev98\Macros. From the Visual C++ editor, simply create two toolbar. Set each of them up to to run these macros: CommentBlock and UncommentBlock.

  • With JRebel, developers get to see their code changes immediately, fine-tune their code with incremental changes, debug, explore and deploy their code with ease (both locally and remotely), and ultimately spend more time coding instead of waiting for the dreaded application redeploy to finish. Every time a developer tests a code change it takes minutes to build and deploy the application. JRebel keeps the app server running at all times, so testing is instantaneous and interactive.
