    Hey gjuro,

    We’ve considered inline/multiline comments in VB several times. In the past it’s been a very expensive thing to implement because of the way the language parser was designed and the way the IDE integrates with it. The VB and C# code bases are, for historical reasons, very different. Anyway, in Roslyn such a thing isn’t as difficult anymore but we still question the value. In fact “is it worth it” is the real obstacle at this point.

    We don’t actually see much use of inline/multiline comments even in C# which makes us even more hesitant to add them to VB.

    Now, what we have been able to make work in Roslyn is this:

    Dim q = From x In y ’ This is a from clause
    Where x < z ’ And this is the where
    Select x ’ This select is redundant

    That is, comments after implicit…
