ImplicitLineContinuation

In many cases, you can continue a statement on the next consecutive line without using the underscore character (_). The following lists the syntax elements that implicitly continue the statement on the next line of code.

After a comma

sub mySub(a as ushort,
          b as ushort,
          c as ushort)
end sub

exception to this rule is macro declaration

After a curly bracket "{" and before a "}"...

private const data() as ushort = {
   1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,
   9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1
}

After a bracket "(" and before a ")"

public mySub (
          1,2,3
         ) 

exception to this rule is macro declaration

Concatenation...

dim str as string = "two"
str = "one" &
      str   &
      "three"  

Assignment operators...

=, &=, +=, -=, *=, /=, \=, ^=, <<=, >>=

dim myStr as string = 
   ucase(str) +
   lcase(str)

Binary operators...

+, -, /, *, Mod, <>, <, >, <=, >=, ^, >>, <<, Not, IsNot, And, AndAlso, Or, OrElse, Xor

dim a as ushort = 1
dim b as ushort = 2
dim result as ushort = a *
                       b               
if (a < 2) or
   (b > 8) then
end if   

After dim, const or config...

dim
   a as ushort = 1,
   b as ushort = 2,
   c as ushort = 3
