I need to "hide" text in a class definition

Folks:

I am new to VB.net.  I have experience in C++.

I have a class module (call it a.vb) that contains all the code necessary for a class I have designed.  It actually works.  (Scary)  My issue is, this class contains a lot of private stuff - enums, structures, variables, interfaced to legacy DLLs, etc.  I always code private data before any functions or procedures; and I always code New() first.  In this particular case, new is around line 800.  This is annoying.

I want to do one of two things -
1)  Move all the junk to another file and #include it.  (Excuse my C.)

2)  The IDE has methods of collapsing definitions of procedures etc.  Is there a way to define a section - such that everything between the section and end section will collapse?

Answers to eather question will be appreciated.  I'll split points if I get good answers to both.  Also, if there is a third possibility - let me know.  As I said - I am new and want to learn the new tricks.

Thanks

#region foo
//code
#end region



you can put the code into a seperate class easily, if they are in the same namespace there is no need to #include.

namespace foo
    friend class bar
         public static test as integer
    end class
end namespace

namespace foo
    public class t
         public function get foo as integer
                return bar.test
         end function
    end class
end namespace
