' or rem

As a side note, you can do block comments in VB.Net (Ctrl-K,Ctrl-C).

You select the entire block and simply press "Tab"

To uncomment select and press "Shift + Tab"

That just moves the block in or out (which is convenient) but doesn't change the block to all comments.

You can use the Edit toolbar to Comment or Uncomment

You can use block comments in VB...right click you VB IDE menu and choose Customize...Go to Commands tab and choose Edit from the left listbox...scroll the right bar down and you will see block comment button...drag that to your VB IDE

Sethi,
   instead of doing all that you can directly use the 'Edit' toolbar provided with VB which I have already told. :)

But neither comment answers the question:

You still have to click on the button in the toolbar (whereever it is since this customizable).

There isn't an accellerator key for the "Comment Block" menu command and I can't find a way to add a shortcut key combo to a toolbar button in the IDE so I dont' think there is a canned way for you to accomplish this.

If you are ambitious, then you could write your own VB6-AddIn by creating a new AddIn project.  AddIns allow you to extend the capabilities of the IDE through VB code.  I have no experience in this arena however, so I can't help you out there.

Here is how an example on MSDN of how to create an Add-In:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/189468/EN-US/

There is an interesting article here:
http://www.ftponline.com/archives/listissue.asp?pubID=1&MagIssueId=156#
That demonstrates how to subclass the IDE code window so you can create macros.  Haven't tried it out thoug.

Really not finding much documentation out there on how to write Add-Ins.
