I have a problem. I installed the product and used it until the trial period ended. I bought the product and I now have a valid keycode. However, I can't get the registration/validation window to come up.

Ao how do I activate the product after the trial period ended?

Please open the "VS10x Comments Extender - Customize" dialog (it's in the "VS10X" menu on the VS menu bar) and go to the "About" tab. It's all there :-)

I suggest to enable the styles for //TODO+ or //TODO! etc. lines, so we can view the lines in VS TODO list.

Hmmm... Sounds interesting and, most probably, doable. Let me see what I can do about it!

Hmm... Is this a form of SPAM?

Very helpful tool.

I'm using on VS2010 Ultimate.

by billster6809b | November 25 2012

I use this addin extensively. It's one of those things you don't NEED, but it fills numerous unknown needs!

Support is also exemplary:
Version 1.31, and earlier, had a bug which broke operation Visual Studio 2012/2010 dependent files.

For example, if I had a *.tt file used in Entity Framework, with V1.31 installed and enabled, clicking on a file under the T4 parent did not display the file, just the tab, and would often crash VS.

Disabling the comments extender fixed the problem.

I notified the developer of this and within a day it was resolved. Great response!

The Large and Small comments crash VS 2012. This is also the issue with the comment blocks below since two of the lines start with //-

Please resolve this. You have had this reported for some time now. I am having trouble keeping my company paying for this as it is.

Thank you!

Problem solved - please update to 1.32

by Rumen Paletov | November 15 2012


VS 2012 RTM crashes when trying to paste the following header in a .cs file:

// <auto-generated>
// This code was generated by a tool.
// Changes to this file may cause incorrect behavior and will be lost if
// the code is regenerated.
// </auto-generated>

If you can't reproduce it try to disable and re-enable the extension after that. Then you should be able to reproduce the exception.

Rumen - I will make sure to have this issue analyzed!

EDIT: Sorry it took such a long time. Problem solved - please updated to 1.32

brilliant idea for partial works

by bobfox | September 22 2012

Only works in VS 2010.
In VS 2012 RTM +,++,-,-- don't work.

This has been fixed in 1.32, please update!

You know. It's not be bad if you have some button hiding ALL comments in the document.

I really looking for such tool.

Very useful extension, love the way my TODO items pop out now

by tianxu0836 | January 11 2012

When I press "//" I want to also insert current time, something like "// 2012-01-11" or "// my name 2012-01-11". That will be cool

This tool "extends" comments from a visual point of view, not from a contents point of view.

by wvd_vegt | December 28 2011

Great extension.

I have only a single request: I would like to see a list of all the comments (per prefix) a a dockable window (bit like the todo list).

Interesting suggestion! I will definitely consider it, thank you!

.cs files with the following header in it makes VS2010 crash.

// <copyright file="......cs" company="....">
// Copyright (c) ...... All rights reserved.
// </copyright>
// <author>.....</author>
// <CreatedDate>2008/05/30</CreatedDate>

Michael Kiss [AxTools] November 09 2011

Christo - I will definitely have a look at this.

UPDATE: I replaced the dots and pasted the above header in several C# files - no crash! Can you please try the following and tell me if it makes any difference:
- enable the "Require whitespace between extended comment marker and commented text"
- uncheck "Enable the 'small' comment style" and "Enable the 'extra small' comment style" checkboxes.

As a side note, if you could contact me by e-mail regarding this issue, maybe we could advance more rapidly.

I have installed this addin and when I load a complex project and open a class from Visual Studio 2010, crash and restart the IDE.

If I disable this addin from the Extension Manager Window, I can load the same project and open whatever class without problems.

This failure is with the last updade (v1.24).

I hope that helps.



P.D. I have put 2 starts instead of 4 or 5 because this error is serious.
