Description lytles 2009-08-24 05:03:22 UTC
single line javadoc comments, eg.

/** this is a comment */
function blah() {}

are ignored in the documentation popup, instead showing "no comments found". reformatting the comment as 3 lines makes 
the popup work correctly, eg.

  * this is a comment

Changing the component for the issue. Was erroneously located in usersguide.
Comment 2 Martin Fousek 2012-09-07 13:28:14 UTC
Unformatted comments are parsed correctly in the new javascript editor, so you will have it fixed in the NetBeans 7.3. Marking as fixed.

By the way, feel free to try it out in the development builds, here:
