End of Statement (Cross Ref > Statements)

By Mike Prestwood

VB Classic versus C++/CLI: A side by side comparison between VB Classic and C++/CLI.

 
Language Basics
 

Language basics is kind of a catch all for absolute beginner stuff. The items (common names) I chose for language basics is a bit random and include items like case sensitivity, commenting, declaring variables, etc.

End of Statement

[Other Languages] 

Languages Focus

In coding languages, common End of statement specifiers include a semicolon and return (others exist too). Also of concern when studying a language is can you put two statements on a single code line and can you break a single statement into two or more code lines.

VB Classic:   Return

A return marks the end of a statement and you cannot combine statements on a single line of code. You can break a single statement into two or more code lines by using a space and underscore " _".

Syntax Example:
MsgBox "Hello1"
MsgBox "Hello2"
MsgBox "Hello3"

'The following commented code
'on a single line does not work...
'MsgBox "Hello4" MsgBox "Hello5"

'Two or more lines works too with a space+underscore:
MsgBox _
"Hello6";
C++/CLI:   ;

Same as standard C++. C++ uses a semicolon ";" as an end of statement specifier and you can put multiple statements on a single line of code if you wish as well as split a single statement into two or more code lines.

Syntax Example:
//.Net WinForms example.
//Add, using namespace System::Windows::Forms;
MessageBox::Show("Hello1");
MessageBox::Show("Hello2");
MessageBox::Show("Hello3");
   
MessageBox::Show("Hello4"); MessageBox::Show("Hello5"); 
  
MessageBox:: 
  Show 
    ("Hello6");
