We might as well just 'Like' the post that recommends the solution that we want. That was you can see the number of votes in favour of the each method.

I too prefer the Old method, having to think any more is an overhead I can do without :)

I found that in most cases, the parts of code that I want to block-comment always start with a comment (i.e a complete sub with comment s before the sub). But now I understand the new system, so I should block comment from the line after the comment.

I also preferred the old method, but maybe because I didn't know how the new one works.

I guess the way we should comment lines now would be at the end of each line.
B4X:
for i = 1 to 10 'looping.
    log(i) 'logging.
next

Hi jmon,

You got it wrong. No need to put the comment at the end of the line. ;o)

See here an example: Problem Comment/Uncomment Button
But unfortunately you are right, by starting the marker in the line below the comment line.

Greetings, Gunther

With the old method I could easily write
B4X:
' '   Dim VR As VoiceRecognition
' '   Dim TTS1 As TTS         'TTS
' '   Dim DataAppWew          As String


to give a different meaning to the mnemonic lines with a single apostrophe than those with two apostrophes.
With the new method this is impossible.

Also remove the comment to something

B4X:
'    Dim VR                     As VoiceRecognition
    FileXML="aaaa.xml"
'    Dim DataAppWew          As String
    dbOrario="alfa"
'   dim K                    as string   
'   dim PanelLabel            as label


It is much more laborious.

The next version (after 5.01) will include the beloved uncomment / comment buttons.
There's plenty of room on the toolbar so you're welcome to keep both techniques so all users are satisfied
