Webforms ReportViewer issues with IReportServerCredentials conversion from C# to VB


Going round and round in circles ! I have an example in c# that works, when I try and convert to vb I can't get it to compile with

must implement 'ReadOnly Property NetworkCredentials As System.Net.ICredentials' for interface 'Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms.IReportServerCredentials'. Implementing property must have matching 'ReadOnly' or 'WriteOnly' specifiers

anybody been through this before or have a vb example that works ??

I've attached both example code files that both work off this...

<%@ Page Language="VB" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="Default.aspx.vb" Inherits="_Default" %>

<%@ Register assembly="Microsoft.ReportViewer.WebForms, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=89845dcd8080cc91" namespace="Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms" tagprefix="rsweb" %>

In VB.NET you use keywords on methods that are event (Handles) or interface (Implements) related; e.g. -
Imports Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms
Imports System.Net

Public Class _Default
	Inherits System.Web.UI.Page

	Protected Sub Page_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
		If Not Me.IsPostBack Then
			ReportViewer1.Width = 800
			ReportViewer1.Height = 600
			ReportViewer1.ProcessingMode = ProcessingMode.Remote
			Dim irsc As IReportServerCredentials = New CustomReportCredentials("stevejebson-001", "********", "ifc")
			' e.g.: ("demo-001", "123456789", "ifc")
			ReportViewer1.ServerReport.ReportServerCredentials = irsc
			ReportViewer1.ServerReport.ReportServerUrl = New Uri("http://sql5002.smarterasp.net/ReportServer")
			ReportViewer1.ServerReport.ReportPath = "/stevejebson-001/SiteInspections"
			'e.g.: /demo-001/test
		End If
	End Sub
End Class

Public Class CustomReportCredentials
	Implements IReportServerCredentials
	Private _UserName As String
	Private _PassWord As String
	Private _DomainName As String

	Public Sub New(UserName As String, PassWord As String, DomainName As String)
		_UserName = UserName
		_PassWord = PassWord
		_DomainName = DomainName
	End Sub

	Public ReadOnly Property ImpersonationUser() As System.Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity Implements IReportServerCredentials.ImpersonationUser
			Return Nothing
		End Get
	End Property

	Public ReadOnly Property NetworkCredentials() As ICredentials Implements IReportServerCredentials.NetworkCredentials
			Return New NetworkCredential(_UserName, _PassWord, _DomainName)
		End Get
	End Property

	Public Function GetFormsCredentials(ByRef authCookie As Cookie, ByRef user As String, ByRef password As String, ByRef authority As String) As Boolean Implements IReportServerCredentials.GetFormsCredentials
		authCookie = Nothing
		user = InlineAssignHelper(password, InlineAssignHelper(authority, Nothing))
		Return False
	End Function
	Private Shared Function InlineAssignHelper(Of T)(ByRef target As T, value As T) As T
		target = value
		Return value
	End Function
End Class
