Description Julien HENRY 2012-10-03 09:54:50 UTC
According to VbNet language definition it is not allowed to put another Case after a Case Else. In Visual Studio it produces a compilation error. But with Mono the following code "works".

Select Case 1
  Case 0
  Case Else ' Compliant
  Case 1
End Select

and output "B".

Please fix the compiler to not accept that Case Else is not the last Case of a Select.
