Languages and Frameworks: Visual Basic .NET
JetBrains Rider supports Visual Basic .NET up to VB 14 and partially VB 15.
Change language version
By default, JetBrains Rider automatically detects VB.NET version based on the associated compiler. However, you can specify the target VB.NET version explicitly for a project — press Alt+Enter on the project in the Solution Explorer and use the Language version selector on the Application page of the Project Properties dialog.
Depending on the current VB.NET version — whether it is detected automatically or set explicitly — JetBrains Rider adjusts its features. For example, code inspection detects places in your code, which could be simplified using new language features.
Descriptions of JetBrains Rider features in VB.NET are grouped in the following topics:
- Code Inspection and Quick-Fixes
- Coding Assistance
- Code Style Assistance
- Navigation and Search
- Code Generation
- Code Templates
