Just got VS 2008 for work, I am converting some items from VS 2006 to VS 2008.. But one project I want to split. So I converted the old project to VS2008. Then created a new shell project. Using the "add existing item" I tried to copy the forms in.. In 2006 you saw the 3 files (form.cs, form.design.cs, form.resx) but only selected the form.cs, and the other two forms followed it in as subcode under the form.cs on the directory tree.
I see 2008 does not even show the *.cs by default. Instead it default to only showing the .resx. So I tried to just choose that, (thinking they were trying to be helpful and show only what I needed to copy in.) I got only the .resx file and it was basically worthless on it's own.
So I deleted it, went back to "Add existing item" and chose to view all. I selected only the *.cs. But only the *.cs was brought in and not the subcode.
So I cleared down again and returned to view all. I selected all the files for each form. But they all come in at the main level rather then the *.cs being top level and the *.resx and *.Designer.cs being the sub level.. and again like that they are worthless.
So what is the trick to copying forms out of one project into another? And before I hit a problem.. Is there something I should know about copying forms within projects to a different name?
