Gets the default string for adding tasks to the Task List window.
Assembly: EnvDTE (in EnvDTE.dll)
You can use comment tokens to add tasks to your Visual Studio integrated development environment (IDE). By entering that token name as a remark in your code, a task is automatically created and added to the Task List window.
The first character of a token must be the first alphanumeric character in the comment line. The token must be followed by at least one white space character or nonalphanumeric character.
For example, you might add this line:
'HACK: Need to optimize this loop.
If "HACK" is a valid token, the string is added to the Task List window as a new task item.
The default comment token, returned by this property, is "TODO" and cannot be changed.
