Inserting Annotations Using the Annotation
- In the Visual Studio* editor, select the code section that you wish to annotate.
- Right-click to open the context menu and selectIntel Advisor [version]> Annotation Wizard...The Annotation Wizard opens with the defaultAnnotate Site – select task annotations belowannotation selected:
- From theChoose the Annotation Typedrop-down, choose the appropriate annotation type. For example, if you want to add the parallel site (parallel code region) annotations and a single task annotation within that site, start by selecting the site code block and chooseSite and Iteration Task Snippet, single iteration task in loop. In other cases, you may need to add two separate annotations - one for the site and one for the task(s). In this case, after adding them, move individual annotation lines around your existing site and task(s) code.Your code appears in theExamplesection of the dialog, with the annotation line(s) highlighted in red font.
- ClickNextto configure the parameters of the opening annotation line.For Annotation types that include parameters, page 2 of the wizard appears. Site, task, and other annotations take name arguments. You should replace the added name with a name that helps you quickly identify its source location. For example, ifMySite1is the argument to a site annotation, replace it with a meaningful function or loop name. The added name must be unique amongst the annotations in this project. For Annotation types that do not include parameters, go to step 8.
- Specify the parameter values for the first parameter in the Annotation type, or use the default text that appears in the wizard.The highlighted annotation line now has your specified parameter value entered in the annotation line.
- ClickNextto configure, or keep the default text for the next parameter. Repeat for all the parameters.The highlighted annotation line now has all parameters filled in with values entered in the annotation line.
- ClickNextto go to page 3 of the wizard and review the annotation line(s) before adding it to you code.
- ClickFinishto add the annotation line with your specified parameters to your code.The Wizard closes and the editor shows the annotation lines added to the code.
