Does anyone know of a tool that allows you to comment blocks of code in Visual Interdev similar to what you can do with the Visual Basic IDE

Not that I know of. I was excited to find out, however, that if you select a block of text, then use the tab/shift-tab keys, the selected text will change indentation as a block.

I dont know, but what im used to comment with <!--**-->.

assume that in an asp page, suppose to comment from line3 to line 5, put '%>' in line2 and '<%' in line6.
then put '<!--' in line 3 and '-->' in line 5.

This may help u little.

In the Find/Replace Dialog Box, Choose the Third Icon, **Regular Expression**.

Then in the Find Textbox Enter ^[a-zA-Z]. This means select one character in the beginning of the line.

in the Replace Textbox Enter '. This will replace the character with '. and comments the line. but, of course, u will lose the first character.


Dim ntest will become
'im ntest **D is replaced by '**
