2.1.2 Line Continuation
A line continuation consists of at least one white-space character that immediately precedes a single underscore character as the last character (other than white space) in a text line. A line continuation allows a logical line to span more than one physical line. Line continuations are treated as if they were white space, even though they are not.
The following program shows some line continuations:
Imports System Module Test Function Func( _ ByVal Param1 As Integer, _ ByVal Param2 As Integer ) If (Param1 < Param2) Or _ (Param1 > Param2) Then Console.WriteLine("Not equal") End If End Function End Module
