Description Lee Millward 2011-10-02 15:12:08 UTC
The following invalid code snippet is currently compiled without any errors being reported:

Module Main

	Sub Foo

            GoTo Label
        End Try


	End Sub
End Module

This code is invalid as the spec forbids the target of a GoTo statement declared within a Finally block to jump to a label that isn't declared within the same block.

Compiling the above code with VBC results in the following error:

error BC30101: Branching out of a 'Finally' is not valid.
