Writing Code in C#
A good programming habit is to add comments.
There are two ways to add a comment.:
A single line comment begins with //
The compiler will ignore everything after the //
// Programmer: Janet Joy
// The Hello World program with code.
this.BackColor = Color.SlateBlue; //a deep gray
A multiline comment starts with /* and ends with */
/* Programmer: Janet Joy
Hello World with code
- The C# compiler ignores comments.
- Comments are a way for the programmer to leave notes for themselves.
- Add a comment with your name and an overview of what the program does.
- The multiline comment is also useful to "comment out" code that doesn't work.
- Comments are shown in green.
- Place the comment on a separate line, not at the end of a line of code.
- Begin comment text with an uppercase letter.
- End comment text with a period.
- Insert one space between the comment delimiter (//) and the comment text.
