Example VB code for EditControl throws an error

The following VB code is copied from the EditControl online documentation regarding implementation of columnlines for windows forms:

' Enable Column Guides.

Me.editControl1.ShowColumnGuides = True


' Specify the color and the location of the Column Guides.

Dim columnGuideItem() As ColumnGuideItem = NewColumnGuideItem(2)

columnGuideItem(0) = New ColumnGuideItem(20, Color.Yellow)

columnGuideItem(1) = New ColumnGuideItem(40, Color.IndianRed)

Me.editControl1.ColumnGuideItems = columnGuideItem


' Font used to calculate the column location.

Me.editControl1.ColumnGuidesMeasuringFont = NewFont("Microsoft Sans Serif",12)

However, VS 2012 reports the following error:

Error 1 Value of type 'Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Edit.Utils.ColumnGuideItem' cannot be converted to '1-dimensional array of Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Edit.Utils.ColumnGuideItem'.

for the line
Dim columnGuideItem() As ColumnGuideItem = NewColumnGuideItem(2)

Can someone suggest a solution? Thanks.
