JavaScript comments can be used to make the code more readable.

JavaScript Comments

Comments can be added to explain the JavaScript, or to make it more readable.

Single line comments start with //.

This example uses single line comments to explain the code:

The Code

<script type="text/javascript">
// This will write a header:
document.write("<h1>This is a header</h1>");
// This will write two paragraphs:
document.write("<p>This is a paragraph</p>");
document.write("<p>This is another paragraph</p>");
</script>

Using Comments to Prevent Execution

In this example the comment is used to prevent the execution of a single code line:

The Code

<script type="text/javascript">
document.write("<h1>This is a header</h1>");
document.write("<p>This is a paragraph</p>");
//document.write("<p>This is another paragraph</p>");
</script>
