Language-specific properties

Discover and update the VB.NET-specific properties in Administration > General Settings > VB.NET.

Analyze generated code

To analyze tool-generated code (e.g. WCF code generated by SvcUtil.exe) for a specific VB.NET project, enable the "Analyze generated code" setting inside Project > Administration > General Settings > VB.NET. By default, tool-generated code files are skipped from analysis.

Known limitations

Currently an error will be thrown when an issue is raised on a line of code containing the following pattern \s+error\s*: (i.e. one or more spaces, the string 'error', zero or more spaces and a ':' ) . This is a well known problem on the Microsoft side (see issue). In order to work around this problem, analysis will skip issues reported on any line where the pattern is detected.

Scanner compatibility

To analyze VB.NET code, you need to use the SonarScanner for .NET version 4.x or newer.
