How do I comment out a section of code in EditControl ?


It is possible to comment out a section of code by inserting the "//" (using C# as an example) at the beginning of each line in that particular section. The interop call LockWindowUpdate can be used to pause and resume painting while the lines are being commented.


// Lock Painting


for (int i=1; i<=this.editControl1.PhysicalLineCount; i++)


this.editControl1.InsertText(i,1,"// ");


// Resume Painting



' Lock Painting


Dim i As Integer

For i = 1 To Me.editControl1.PhysicalLineCount

Me.editControl1.InsertText(i, 1, "// ")

Next i

' Resume Painting


Please refer to the test sample below that provides more information in this regard.
