So, I managed to find what needed to be written and I show it below:
Figuring this out was brutal. I really just stumbled onto an obscure web page from 2005 where someone was explaining the VB.NET equivalent of the C# typeof() operator. None of the more recent explanations of VB's "TypeOf() IS <whatever>" seem even remotely
close to the answer above. Is it just the case I let the Visual Studio error messages push me in a wrong direction?
If anyone has any counsel or guidance regarding the specific syntax for <Required> it would surely be appreciated, but since I found the solution to this specific question...
I would like to also ask for counsel or guidance on how I might 'get more targeted' when searching for proper syntax for various VB.NET operators, especially as it relates to asp.net and MVC 5 programming. The web page for the <Required> attribute (MSDN
page) didn't seem to point me anywhere near the solution above, which leaves me wondering how I should actually go about finding answers for the more arcane solutions in VB.
