comment syntax/location in .CT code

Post by dna »

I posted this in the thread for the specific table im editing, but no response. This might be the appropriate place for this question.

I need some expert help from the wise CT devs around here please. I have a few questions about editing the table. I have added a few entries under the "+Bulk GetItem (packs, quests, materials)" section (and also added the XP multiplier feature from swedishMagyar's table, with his permission). Everything works just fine after testing it for a few while. With the recent update, I copied my edits into the new table, but decided to add some comments throughout my code to mark my edits and beginning/end of some snippets. I've definitely mad a mistake, having comments in certain spots of a code block. Comments I've placed in other areas are just fine, i.e. dq 000000000000C350 //Quantity 50000 .. but the standalone comment lines sometimes will add a blank entry/checkbox to the table

In short, some of my comments are causing blank entries in the table when placed between 2 CheatEntry blocks (i.e. after an ending </CheatEntry> and before the next <CheatEntry> ..

Screenshots:

WITHOUT the comment lines:

Ive tried reading some guides and found a few threads about commenting, but wasnt able to find information about comment placement or about the specific prob im having. Do I need to escape the comment characters?

Any help would be appreciated

It's not XML, XML doesn't have comments. The comments in the "AssemblerScript" element are fine as that's inside an element, but the other ones are in between elements.

Hi Tim, thanks for your help. That makes sense, I should have realized that.. I wonder if you can use the XML "comment" syntax like <!-- my comment -->
I might test this out later

Yeah if I remember correctly XML technically doesn't support comments, but almost all implementations accept HTML comment style. But XML might have been updated to include comments.
