Convert from C# to VB.net

Hello.  I ran this code through a converter but it failed :(

I don't understand the purpose of the square brackets in C#

Could someone convert it for me please?

[Table]
public class ToDoItem : INotifyPropertyChanged, INotifyPropertyChanging
{
// Define ID: private field, public property and database column.
private int _toDoItemId;

[Column(IsPrimaryKey = true, IsDbGenerated = true, DbType = "INT NOT NULL Identity", CanBeNull = false, AutoSync = AutoSync.OnInsert)]
public int ToDoItemId
{
    get
    {
        return _toDoItemId;
    }
    set
    {
        if (_toDoItemId != value)
        {
            NotifyPropertyChanging("ToDoItemId");
            _toDoItemId = value;
            NotifyPropertyChanged("ToDoItemId");
        }
    }
}

// Define item name: private field, public property and database column.
private string _itemName;

[Column]
public string ItemName
{
    get
    {
        return _itemName;
    }
    set
    {
        if (_itemName != value)
        {
            NotifyPropertyChanging("ItemName");
            _itemName = value;
            NotifyPropertyChanged("ItemName");
        }
    }
}

// Define completion value: private field, public property and database column.
private bool _isComplete;

[Column]
public bool IsComplete
{
    get
    {
        return _isComplete;
    }
    set
    {
        if (_isComplete != value)
        {
            NotifyPropertyChanging("IsComplete");
            _isComplete = value;
            NotifyPropertyChanged("IsComplete");
        }
    }
}
// Version column aids update performance.
[Column(IsVersion = true)]
private Binary _version;

#region INotifyPropertyChanged Members

public event PropertyChangedEventHandler PropertyChanged;

// Used to notify the page that a data context property changed
private void NotifyPropertyChanged(string propertyName)
{
    if (PropertyChanged != null)
    {
        PropertyChanged(this, new PropertyChangedEventArgs(propertyName));
    }
}

#endregion

#region INotifyPropertyChanging Members

public event PropertyChangingEventHandler PropertyChanging;

// Used to notify the data context that a data context property is about to change
private void NotifyPropertyChanging(string propertyName)
{
    if (PropertyChanging != null)
    {
        PropertyChanging(this, new PropertyChangingEventArgs(propertyName));
    }
}

#endregion

Square brackets (as used above) denote attributes. In VB.NET, you use angle brackets ( < > ) for attributes.

Does this work? If not, what line(s) are in error?
