Translation of C# array to VB.NET

Hi there.
I need some help translating the following small snippet from C# to VB.NET. Unfortunately I am totaly lost when it comes to C# and this time it is the array that is confusing.

Probably easy for you guys, but hard for me. ;)

Thanks in advance!
//Purchase list (catalog purchases)
if(PRP_CatalogPurchases != null)
{
   for(int i = 0;i < PRP_CatalogPurchases.Count;i++)
   {
   string[] Purchase = (string[])PRP_CatalogPurchases[i];
   PRP_XmlData += "<catalog_purchase>" + Environment.NewLine;
   PRP_XmlData += "<line_number>" +  PRP_htmlspecialchars((string)Purchase[0]) + "</line_number>" + Environment.NewLine;
   PRP_XmlData += "<id>" +  PRP_htmlspecialchars((string)Purchase[1]) + "</id>" + Environment.NewLine;
   PRP_XmlData += "<quantity>" +  PRP_htmlspecialchars((string)Purchase[2]) + "</quantity>" + Environment.NewLine;
   PRP_XmlData += "</catalog_purchase>" + Environment.NewLine;
   }
}

Try:

 
    * 'Purchase list (catalog purchases)
    * If PRP_CatalogPurchases IsNot Nothing Then
    *     For i As Integer = 0 To PRP_CatalogPurchases.Count - 1
    *         Dim Purchase As String() = DirectCast(PRP_CatalogPurchases(i), String())
    *         PRP_XmlData += "<catalog_purchase>" + Environment.NewLine
    *         PRP_XmlData += "<line_number>" + PRP_htmlspecialchars(DirectCast(Purchase(0), String)) + "</line_number>" + Environment.NewLine
    *         PRP_XmlData += "<id>" + PRP_htmlspecialchars(DirectCast(Purchase(1), String)) + "</id>" + Environment.NewLine
    *         PRP_XmlData += "<quantity>" + PRP_htmlspecialchars(DirectCast(Purchase(2), String)) + "</quantity>" + Environment.NewLine
    *         PRP_XmlData += "</catalog_purchase>" + Environment.NewLine
    *     Next
    * End If

Try this way using http://www.developerfusion.com/tools/convert/csharp-to-vb/
'Purchase list (catalog purchases) 
If PRP_CatalogPurchases IsNot Nothing Then 
    For i As Integer = 0 To PRP_CatalogPurchases.Count - 1 
        Dim Purchase As String() = DirectCast(PRP_CatalogPurchases(i), String()) 
        PRP_XmlData += "<catalog_purchase>" + Environment.NewLine 
        PRP_XmlData += "<line_number>" + PRP_htmlspecialchars(DirectCast(Purchase(0), String)) + "</line_number>" + Environment.NewLine 
        PRP_XmlData += "<id>" + PRP_htmlspecialchars(DirectCast(Purchase(1), String)) + "</id>" + Environment.NewLine 
        PRP_XmlData += "<quantity>" + PRP_htmlspecialchars(DirectCast(Purchase(2), String)) + "</quantity>" + Environment.NewLine 
        PRP_XmlData += "</catalog_purchase>" + Environment.NewLine 
    Next 
End If

Sorry, here's formatted right:
'Purchase list (catalog purchases)
If PRP_CatalogPurchases IsNot Nothing Then
    For i As Integer = 0 To PRP_CatalogPurchases.Count - 1
        Dim Purchase As String() = DirectCast(PRP_CatalogPurchases(i), String())
        PRP_XmlData += "<catalog_purchase>" + Environment.NewLine
        PRP_XmlData += "<line_number>" + PRP_htmlspecialchars(DirectCast(Purchase(0), String)) + "</line_number>" + Environment.NewLine
        PRP_XmlData += "<id>" + PRP_htmlspecialchars(DirectCast(Purchase(1), String)) + "</id>" + Environment.NewLine
        PRP_XmlData += "<quantity>" + PRP_htmlspecialchars(DirectCast(Purchase(2), String)) + "</quantity>" + Environment.NewLine
        PRP_XmlData += "</catalog_purchase>" + Environment.NewLine
