We are in the process of expanding our XML editor tool and I am attempting to implement a comment type function. The editor supports has methods for CommentLines and UncommentLines which only allow specification of a line type comment. Is there a way to implement block comments for XML?

Hi Colin,

For that type of comment, maybe use the EditorView.InsertSurroundingText method.

OK, that sort of works. I was intending for the comment to be applied to each line but I see that I can iterate through the lines adding this. Removal of the "comment" is a bit more problematic, but I can see a possible way for that.

For V4 could you consider adding (if it's not there already) a pair of Comment/Uncomment functions that take two strings pre and post comment text.

So do you want it to place/remove the pre and post text on each line for these proposed feature enhancements?

Meaning this:
line 1
line 2
Would become this:
<!-- line 1 -->
<!-- line 2 -->

That's exactly what I would like to see.

Thanks
