AppleScript FAQ: How do I create comments in AppleScript?
Answer: There are two ways to create comments in AppleScript, and I show examples of both comment approaches in this article.
AppleScript comments with "--" or "#" syntax
First, you can use the "--" syntax. This lets you create a comment like this at the beginning of a line:
-- my comment display dialog "yada"
You can also use the same syntax to put a comment at the end of a line, like this:
display dialog "yada" -- my comment
As mentioned in the Comments section below, you can also use the "#" character for comments, like this:
# this is a comment
You can use this '#' symbol just like you use the two dashed lines to create an AppleScript comment.
Multiline AppleScript comments
You can also create multiline AppleScript comments like this:
-- comment 1 -- comment 2
or, using the preferred multiline AppleScript comment syntax form, like this:
(* Hello world, this is my first multi-line AppleScript comment. *)
