android – How to put TODO comments in xml?-ThrowExceptions

Exception or error:

I was wondering if there is a way to comment parts of xml code in android so they would later show up in TODO list in android studio?
I am using android studio 0.8.2.

How to solve:

You can use XML comments <!----> with TODO tags, e.g.

<!-- TODO remember the milk -->

Note that XML comments need to be at the tag level, that is

<!-- TODO ... -->
<SomeElement .../>

and not inside the tag like

<SomeElement <!-- TODO this won't work --> />

###

XML TODO comments are now visible afterwards Android Studio 3 in TODO list. To use them you can use it like below:

<!-- TODO Pending task -->
<android.support.v7.widget.CardView

Make sure to use it above Element/View in XML and not in-between.
