This is a quick post with a workaround to a bug in VS Code that occurs when you use string with
@$ – the verbatim character and the interpolation characters.
If you have a piece of code that looks like this –
string text = @$"any text as long as there is a new line /*";
Everything that comes after it will look commented out, like so –
This is a bit annoying because all coloring is lost below that
You might not have hit this, but if start using Pulumi for IaC in AWS, you will because many permissions on resources often end with
/*, or if you want to print some slashes and stars to the console.
Fortunately, there is a very easy workaround! Use
$@ instead of
string text = $@"any text as long as there is a new line /*";
