Am starting to experiment with EAs and custom indicators and would like to know if there is a fast way to 'comment-out' (//) in one go code that is selected in MetaEditor. Figure there must be, but have been unable to find the solution so far.

Thanks in advance for any help.

You mean a block of code ? comments

      if (total == 1) OrderSelect(0,SELECT_BY_POS);
      if (total == 1 && OrderType() == OP_SELL && Ask < Preis) {  
         Print ("3.+4.+1. aktiviert");
         if (aktiv_2 == false) k++;

/*         OrderSend(Symbol(),OP_BUYSTOP,Lots,Preis+spread,0,Preis-spread,0,"Hedge zur Short-Order",0,CLR_NONE);  // block starts here . . .
         if (OrdersTotal() == 2) {
            aktiv_4 = true;
            aktiv_2 = false;
            aktiv_RiskHedge = false;
            k_multiplier = false;
            if (aktiv_72 == true) {
               OrderSelect(0,SELECT_BY_POS);
               if (OrderType() == OP_SELL) OrderModify(OrderTicket(),0,StopLoss,0,0,CLR_NONE);
            }
*/                                                                                                               // block ends here . . .
            aktiv_72 = false;
            Print ("k: ", k);
         }
      }

I think he asks if the native MQL editor enables keyboard shortcuts for a line or block comments.

The answer is no, as far as I remember.

Thanks RaptorUK and Ovo. Yes, was wondering whether there was a keyboard shortcut but your solution RaptorUK is just as good! Ta

Comment: Ctrl + '

Uncomment: Ctrl + ;


However, "Ctrl + ;" doesn't work on my Mac installation. Does anybody know which is the Mac-shortcut for uncommenting?


Thanks!
