Commenting out portions of code in TI

Commenting out portions of code in TI admin Mon, 2019-11-18 15:07

You would like to comment out portions of code for legacy or future use instead of removing it. Appending # at the front of every line is ugly and messes up the indenting. Here is a quick, neat and simple fix...

############# PORTION COMMENTED OUT
if(1 = 0);

#code to comment out is here

endif;
####################################

That's it. It can come also handy to turn off auto-generated code in the #****GENERATED STATEMENTS START****.

/!\ I would strongly recommend you add clear markers around the code commented out otherwise it can be very easy for yourself or someone else to overlook the short "if" statement and waste time wondering why the process is not doing anything.

Thanks Paul Simon for the tip.
