CodeComment can be used to represent a single line comment.

A CodeCommentStatement can contain a CodeComment and allows it to be treated as a statement and generated as code within a collection of statements. Multi-line comments can be represented with multiple CodeCommentStatement objects.

To include a comment in a CodeDOM graph that can be generated to source code, add a CodeComment to a CodeCommentStatement, and add this to the statements collection of a CodeMemberMethod or to the comments collection of a CodeNamespace or any object that derives from CodeTypeMember.

This example demonstrates using a CodeComment to represent a comment in source code.

// Create a CodeComment with some example comment text.

// The text of the comment.
// Whether the comment is a comment intended for documentation purposes.
CodeComment^ comment = gcnew CodeComment( "This comment was generated from a System.CodeDom.CodeComment",false );

// Create a CodeCommentStatement that contains the comment, in order
// to add the comment to a CodeTypeDeclaration Members collection.
CodeCommentStatement^ commentStatement = gcnew CodeCommentStatement( comment );

// A C# code generator produces the following source code for the preceeding example code:
// // This comment was generated from a System.CodeDom.CodeComment
