kate supports syntax highlighting for so many programming languages I was surprised when I couldn't find Visual Basic on the list.
How can I get Visual Basic highlighting on kate?
I know some other text editors support this out of the box (gedit, vi), but I'm not interested on switching.
I have found this issue to be reported as a bug, but it has not been addressed by the development team. As the report is quite old, I'm assuming the only alternative is to write the syntax highlighting file myself and submitting it as a patch. https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=193064
