This ViewHelper prevents rendering of any content inside the tag Note: Contents of the comment will still be parsed thus throwing an Exception if it contains syntax errors. You can put child nodes in CDATA tags to avoid this.

= Examples =

<code title="Commenting out fluid code"> Before <f:comment>

This is completely hidden. <f:debug>This does not get rendered</f:debug>

</f:comment> After </code> <output> Before After </output>

<code title="Prevent parsing"> <f:comment><![CDATA[

<f:some.invalid.syntax />

]]></f:comment> </code> <output> </output>

Note: Using this view helper won't have a notable effect on performance, especially once the template is parsed. However it can lead to reduced readability. You can use layouts and partials to split a large template into smaller parts. Using self-descriptive names for the partials can make comments redundant.


This ViewHelper has no arguments.
