Comments (topic)

Comments can be added to Basic Control Engine script code in the following manner:

All text between a single quotation mark and the end of the line is ignored:

MsgBox "Hello" 'Displays a message box.

The REM statement causes the compiler to ignore the entire line:

REM This is a comment.

The Basic Control Engine supports C-style multiline comment blocks /*...*/, as shown in the following example:

  MsgBox "Before comment"

  /* This stuff is all commented out.
  This line, too, will be ignored.
  This is the last line of the comment. */
  MsgBox "After comment"

C-style comments can be nested.
