Commenting is a very useful way of reminding future programmers or the original programmer when they haven't programmed on the same project for a long time what a section of code does. Therefore, it is recommend to comment code while working on it.

Most commercially developed applications have been commented because a wide array of people will work on them.

Commenting code in VB.NET

In Visual Basic, a comment is represented by an apostrophe ('). The line starts with an apostrophe. This represents that a piece of text that should be ignored as a piece of code. A comment is not compiled by the compiler. The purpose of a comment is to inform the programmer what the line below or above does. It is only visible in the text editor.
