VB.Net: 

Common source code file extensions include:

  • .SLN - Solution File. Contains solution specific information such as links to the projects within this solution.

  • .VB -VB.Net source file.
  • .Designer.VB -VB.Net form file (a text resource file).
Syntax Example:
//Sample code snippet from the .vbproj project file:
<ItemGroup>

  </Compile>
  //...
