Problem / Question:
How can a whole block of VBScript be commented out?
Unfortunately, you cannot block comment VBScript like you can in other languages. You can comment out each line individually. Just put a single quotation mark at the start of the line you want to 'out' and do then do the same for each subsequent line.
The following shows a sample code listing with a block of code commented:
Dim a, iLen, bSpace, tmpX, tmpFull iLen = Len(sText) For a = 1 To iLen ' If a <> 1 Then ' If bSpace = True Then ' tmpX = UCase(mid(sText,a,1)) ' bSpace = False ' Else ' tmpX=LCase(mid(sText,a,1)) ' If tmpX = " " Or tmpX = "'" Then bSpace = True ' End if ' Else ' tmpX = UCase(mid(sText,a,1)) ' End if
tmpFull = tmpFull & tmpX Next ProperCase = tmpFull End Function
