Learn how to improve your understanding and utilization of your functions by adding comments to document parameters, return values, warnings, and other callouts.
- [Instructor] In addition to regular…and delimiter comments, you can add quickhelp documentation…to give users of your code quick access…to additional info about your code.…Let's say I want to add a quickhelp comment…to this function, and I'll go over functions later…so don't worry if you're not familiar with this syntax yet.…To add a single line quickhelp comment,…start the comment line immediately above the code…you want to attach it to with three forward slashes.…New in Xcode 8, there's also a menu item,…and keyboard shortcut to do this for you.…Select Editor, Structure, Add Documentation,…or press the keyboard shortcut cmd + opt + /…and add your comment.…
This also works for functions that take parameters…and/or return a value.…This time, I'll use the keyboard shortcut,…and tab through the placeholders, and type in my comments.…There are additional callouts we can use here,…such as to include a warning.…This is just an example, but I'll show you a better way…to handle predictable errors like this…in the functions chapter.…
