Comment it out!

Today, I was experimenting with hash tables that had keys with multiple values. (More about that later!) But, in the course of my experimentation, I tried one technique and then another and then another. I didn’t want to delete any of my trial code, but I also didn’t want it to run. I just wanted to comment it out.

I could have typed a comment symbol (#) on each line or typed the “<#” and “#>” to enclose each code block in a comment block, but PowerShell Studio 2014 makes commenting even easier.


To comment out each line individually (#), highlight one or more lines and type Ctrl + Q, or click Comment (in the Edit section of the Home tab).


Here’s the result.




To add a comment block, highlight a code block and type Ctrl + Shift + Alt + Q, or click Block Comment. (The Block Comment icon is new in PowerShell Studio version 4.1.72.)


And, here’s the result.



To delete comments (either format), highlight the commented lines and type Ctrl + Shift + Q, or click Uncomment.



And, they’re gone.



That will save me a few keystrokes and let me concentrate on my hash table.
