Easiest way is to use the Code Metrics extension, if you're using a paid version of VS. If not, this blog suggests a Find with a regular expression:

Will it includes also the comments lines ??? Becasue i dont want to include the comments code
>> ... Will it includes also the comments lines ?

I've no idea - but I doubt that comment lines will be included if the value is estimated by examining IL Code.

Try it with a small test solution, and find out (then let the rest of us know the answer!).

Use File >> New Project. Add a module with a few comment lines, and a function/sub or two, then see what happens.
As far as I'm aware (I use WPF projects, not Web projects), when you add a new project (via File | New | Project) a new Solution (default name based on the project name) is automatically created.

This is the trouble with volunteer communities - YOU don't have the time to do it, but you expect US to stop what we're doing and do your job for you.

At most, it would take 5 minutes to create a new solution file, add a module, add a sub/function, and then run the metrics.

Its not that I dont have the time , its I DONT  KNOW HOW to do it, how to create a function , what to write in the function ??
Visual Studio provides plenty of Help topics, as do other 'programming' web sites.

The best way to learn about something is to do a bit of research, then try something, then a bit more research, ...
