Screenshot that shows the issue

In RactJS' JSX it is allowed to use inline comments with the following syntax: 
{/* this is a comment */}

The curly braces introduce the Javascript context, where multi-line comments are allowed. Transformers like BabelJS will ignore those expressions.

But in NetBeans 8.2 this syntax will lead to an error hint saying:

> Expected an operand but found }

I'll attach a screenshot which shows the issue.

Yes, I have the same problem. It highlights comments inside curly brackets as comments but flags them as errors. 

Also any comments outside of curly brackets are not flagged as errors but they are not grayed out as comments, they stay regular black colour.


/* returning a component */ <- this will NOT be grayed out and will not be flagged as an error

{ /* status */ <- this comment will be grayed out but will be flagged as an error }
