Implicit line continuation in Visual Basic 10

One of the new features of Microsoft Visual Basic 2010 is the implicit line continuation. In a few words, we'll be able to write portions of code without underscores (_) very similarly to what C# developers do. The background compiler is then able to determine when code block end.

To me it's a good improvement, especially when I write LINQ queries: I actually often forget to put the underscore, having to correct the error :-)

In the Visual Basic Team blog you can find a post about this feature (click here). Beth Massi also made an interview with Tyler Whitney, one of the developers of the VB compiler, about this feature and the interview is available on Channel 9 at this address.

If you want to take a look... ;-)
