ASP.NET MVC 3 Beta: Razor views support comments now

Sometimes we need server-side comments in ASP.NET MVC views. New version of Razor view engine supports comments in views and in this posting I will show you example of view with multiline comments.

I will use the view from my ASP.NET MVC charts caching example and add one multiline comment to this view. Note that comments are put between @* and *@ marks.


@{
    View.Title = "Home Page";
}
 
<h2>@View.Message</h2>
<p>
    @* 
        Charts area 
        -----------
        1. cached for 10 minutes by default
        2. cached for 180 minutes
    *@
    <img src="/Home/MyChart" />
    <img src="/Home/MyCachedChart" />
</p>

NB! This is only example. Don’t write long stories to the comments of your views. Add comments only if it is necessary and if it helps UI developers to communicate better with the presentation layer or model.

Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren't loading properly. I'm not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I've tried it in two different browsers and both show the same results.
