Join Walt Ritscher for an in-depth discussion in this video Commenting your code, part of Visual Studio 2010 Essential Training.
There are two kinds of documentation that are frequently written by developers.…First, we have code comments, and second, we have help files.…In this movie, I'll cover code comments, which explain the purpose of the…current code and help make the code self-documenting.…I am inside Visual Studio, and I have opened a solution called Comments, which…contains two projects:…a C# project and a Visual Basic project.…I am going to spend the majority of my time commenting code in the C# project,…but nearly everything I show you works exactly the same in Visual Basic, WPF,…Silverlight, HTML--you name it.…
Let's start by open this Book class.…Here I have got a single-line comment.…C# comments are started by using two slashes.…I can also do multi-line comments.…Let me open the Program.cs file.…This is what a multi-line comment looks like.…You start by putting the slash and the asterisks, and then you end the…multi-line comment by using an asterisk and a slash. That comments out all…the code between those.…Another common use of comments is to take lines of code out there that you…

Q: Which edition of Visual Studio 2010 do I need to follow along in this course?
A: The course is taught with Visual Studio 2010 Professional, but can also be used with the Premium or Ultimate editions. The Express editions of Visual Studio, including Visual Basic 2010 Express, Visual C# 2010 Express, and Visual C++ Express, are not covered in this course.
Q: I'm attempting to download the exercise files for this course, and my virus protection is blocking me from unzipping the downloaded file. Are the files corrupted?
A: The alert is a false-positive message. Your antivirus software is detecting the active code included in the exercise files, which in some ways resembles viral code. There is nothing to be alarmed about and you can ignore the warning. This is common among coding courses and environments.
