You could do this in a VB.NET sub like this:
'CheckNumber(100) <--- $checkthisnumber = 100;

Sub CheckNumber(ByVal number As Integer)

     Dim i As Integer = 1 '$i=1;

     While i < 151 'while ($i < 151) 

         If i = number Then 'if ($i == $checkthisnumber) 

             'echo "number found,: ". $checkthisnumber;

             Response.Write("number found,: " & CStr(number))


             'echo $i." was not found";

             Response.Write(CStr(number) & " was not found")


         i = i + 1 '$i++;

     End While

End Sub

This snippet should do the same thing.


Dim checkthisnumber As Integer = 100

Dim i As Integer = 1

While i < 151

    If i = checkthisnumber Then

        Console.WriteLine("number found,: " & checkthisnumber.ToString())


        Console.WriteLine(i.ToString() & " was not found")

    End If

    i += 1

End While
