Is there a conditional ternary operator in VB.NET?

In Perl (and other languages) a conditional ternary operator can be expressed like this:

my $foo = $bar == $buz ? $cat : $dog;

Is there a similar operator in VB.NET?


Depends. The If operator in VB.NET 2008 acts as a ternary operator. This was just introduced, prior to 2008 this was not available. Here's some more info: Visual Basic If announcement


Dim foo as String = If(bar = buz, cat, dog)
