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
