The Action Items feature provides a convenient means to tag comments in your programs for special attention such as a "To Do" or "Fix Me" reminder. All comments that are tagged with one of the words or character patterns from the table below will be added to the Action Items window the next time the file or project is saved. Once a tagged comment is listed in the window, you can double click on it and you will be taken immediately to its source in the editor window.
How to tag a comment for inclusion in the Action Items list
To tag a comment, simply use one of the words or character patterns from the table below (or others you add to the list yourself) as the initial text of the comment. For example, to tag a comment with "TODO" you could use the following:
// TODO Your Comment Here
