I am using Netbeans 6.8 and trying to create a custom PHP comment code block macro with the /* */ style and not the usual double slash.
So far with googling and asking in PHPUGPH, I got this macro code (tools->options->editor->macros):
copy-to-clipboard delete-previous "/*" paste-from-clipboard "*/"
You must first highlight the code and press the shortcut key combination to make a comment block.
My problem now is I don’t know the macro code to uncomment a PHP block.
I found some code but I can’t make it work.
I know this is old (a little over a year), but I found this while looking for useful macros for netbeans and noticed it was still unanswered. I’ve figured out a solution if you’re still interested. I know I’ll be using it from now on, thanks for the idea 🙂
selection-forward selection-forward copy-to-clipboard remove-line paste-from-clipboard delete-previous delete-previous insert-break
Edit: BTW, I’m using 7.0.1, but I believe this should still work in 6.8
this macro worked for me (similar to dreamweaver php block comment).
added to options > editor > macros
cut-to-clipboard "<?php /*" paste-from-clipboard "*/ ?>"
i set the keyboard shortcut to shift+option+cmd+c (mac)
Here is one of the simple solution for doing this
Just create your macro and then put this code in macro
” ” paste-from-clipboard “”
I’m not sure about macros, but I know Netbeans has a really useful comment and uncomment buttons for a block of code. Simply highlight all the code you want to comment or uncomment and click one of the 2 buttons. (one button for commenting, the other for uncommenting)
