This is a feature that I plan to add to VF in an upcoming release. VB and a few other languages permit you to continue a long statement over multiple lines without using the line continuation character (_). Each language designates a limited set of tokens that can be followed by a line break, and it will be treated as though you had explicitly continued on the next line. VB's set of continuable tokens is quite long and I doubt VF's would ever come close to matching it.

Currently, in the upcoming release, VF will allow implicit continuation ...
  • After a comma
  • After a left parenthesis
  • After a left curly brace
  • Between two right curly braces

For more information and examples, see www.b6sw.com/ViviFire/docs/Statements_in_ViviFire.html#Implicit_line_continuation.
