Discrepancy in rule in sonar analysis - Rule Number: S1116

In our VB language code, in the sonar analysis report we are seeing a Minor issue for the rule S1116. This rule suggests that extra semicolons are introduced by mistake, for example because:

  • It was meant to be replaced by one more property declaration, but this was forgotten.
  • There was a typo which lead the semicolon to be doubled, i.e. ;;.

But as per the below screenshot SonarQube is throwing 4 such errors for line number 15, even though I can see there are no double semicolons:

Please advice on why this issue might be happening?

Hey there.

This is a community forum – and as we mention in our FAQ , please don’t bump threads after such a short time (less than a day).

Hi Community Team,

Any advice/update on my query

Hey there.

Could you please post a complete code sample where the issue can be reproduced? An entire file would be best. It’s fine if it’s not the original code – but it should still reproduce the same issue.
