Block comment in rhtml file

Hi all,

Is there tags for block comment in rhtml, so that I can comment out a block of code (mainly for testing/debuging)?

<!-- --> html comment can't prevent ERb code from processed <%# text inside become comment %> only comment out the the tag

It's quite inconvenient not to have such facility.

Thanks, - Chuong

You mean like:

<% if false -%> ...everything skipped... <% end -%>

?

Hi Michael,

It's something like that, but your suggestion is just a workaround. There's no built-in in rhtml to do this? I want the editor to mark it as comment also.

In Java JSP files, you have <%-- comment --%>

However your way is useful at some level.

Thanks, - Chuong

I believe

=begin %>

<% your ruby code here %> <% and some more %>

=end %>

will work. Make sure the '=' sign is the first thing on a line.

Nope, doesn't work.

<%# <p>This <%= does %>n't work?</p> %>
