Q: How do I do block comments in VB like the /* */ in C? A: If you are expecting VB and C to be the same, then you are wrong. However, you can block comment in VB... it's not exactly like C, but does the job.
First, right-click on the toolbar in VB and select Edit. Then, the Edit Toolbar will popup. From here, you can select the text that you want to comment, and then, when you press the Comment Block button on the toolbar, the code will be commented. Also, if you select some text in VB, then press Tab, the entire block of text will indent.
