TODO comments in Visual Studio – Does it really matter ?


Visual Studio is one of my primary IDE used for coding .

TODO comments in Visual Studio – Does it really matter ?

It’s just a personal choice . You can use whiteboard , maintain excel sheet or put it into TFS.

In my case , I tend to use the TODO comments in Visual Studio for things related to the sourecode that I have to do but for some circumstances cannot do it right away.

For these kind of stuffs , i use the feature in Visual Studio , where i define the list of TODO’s for the code and later use it to search within the sourecode and later remove it when it is done.

With the TODO comments , you could maintain a list of tasks which is read from the sourecode and later displays in the Tasks list.

To open the TODO list in Visual Studio 2012 , go to View Menu -> Task List .
