VB.NET Keywords

Keywords are words with specific meaning when using in VB.NET scripting.

Reserved Keywords

Reserved keywords are words that cannot be used as names for programming elements such as variables or procedures. But this restriction can be bypass by enclosing the word in brackets, [].

Keyword EndIf, GoSub, Variant, and Wend are retained as reserved keywords, although they are no longer used in Visual Basic. The meaning of the Let keyword has changed. Let is now used in LINQ queries.

Unreserved Keywords

Unreserved keywords are words that can be used as names for programming elements such as variables or procedures. However, this is not a good practice because the code may be hard to read and can lead to subtle errors that may be difficult to find.
