Syntax definition for VB.Net.

Defines most VB.Net keywords based on VB.Net 12 (.Net 4.5.1)


Use the Sublime Text Package Control plugin - search for VBDotNet. If you don't have Package Control, you can get it here - Package Control.

Manually Installing

Copy the vbdontnet.tmlanguage file into you Sublime Text 2 packages directory.

To ensure the file is not overrwritten/removed during upgrades, consider putting the file in the ../Packages/User/ directory.

git clone https://github.com/angryant0007/VBDotNetSyntax.git [Package Dir]/User/VBDotNetSyntax

e.g. on Mac OSX

git clone https://github.com/angryant0007/VBDotNetSyntax.git ~/Library/Application Support/Sublime Text 2/Packages/User/VBDotNetSyntax

Restart/Open Sublime Text - there should now be a "VB.NET" option under the "syntax" menu.

Consult the documentation to see where the packages directory is for you operating system:

This syntax definition is built using the AAAPackageDev package for Sublime Text 2. You will need to install this first - use Package Control to install. The Sublime Text Documentation has a tutorial on developing a syntax definition to help you get started.

To make changes to the syntax definition, first edit the vbdotnet.JSON-tmlanguage file. Then build the .tmlanguage file using either the "Json to tmlanguage" or "Convert to: Property List" build options provided by AAAPackageDev.
