Dear Experts,

I have spent a few hours looking at the code generation capabilities of Visual Studio from a UML class diagram. I noticed that Visual Studio 2010 and 2012 have T4 templates only for C# and so the generated classes are in C#. My question is - Is there a way to generate VB.Net code from T4 templates? The most desirable solution for me will be a repository of VB.Net T4 templates or class, enum, struct etc. just as the ones defined for C#.

I have used tools like CodeSmith to generate C# code and so I am not looking for a code generator in general. My question is specifically for UML model to code generation in Visual Studio .Net.

Thanks for your help.

By using T4 template we can generate code, it is same like C#.

You can look at bellow example - Creating reusable code generation templates

You could take the T4-generated C# code and just convert it here:
converter.telerik.com

(there are several websites around that do the same thing).

Thanks for the great suggestions. I was hoping for a resource that can supply the equivalent VB.Net templates but looks like the options are:
- Create VB.Net templates from ground up.
- Generate C# code from the existing C# templates and transform the code to VB.net using one of the code converters
