#Region missing in vb.net 2005

With VB.net 2003 I used to be be able to copy a form just by selecting all the code and pasting it in a new project.  In vb.net 2005 The #Region " Windows Form Designer generated code " doesn't seem to exist in any new project I create.  This is the section where all the controls were defined.  This ability was great since you could just email some code to someone and they just could paste it in a new project and the form was completely designed with support code.
I don't want to have to manually design the form again.  Can this be turned back on in vb.net 2005?

This is all placed in a seperate file now. You have to click on the "Show All Files" icon in the Solution Explorer (second from left), and then expand the form you want to display the code for. There will be a file named Form.Designer.vb, which contains that information...

Hi Pber;

In VB .Net 2005 they split that into two files. If you goto Solution Explorer window and click on the Show All Files button at the top of the window then click on the + sign next to the form you want to copy you will see some more files as sub nodes to the file.

For example if the form you are looking for is Form1.vb then as a sub node you will find a file called Form1.Designer.vb which holds all of the code that was in #Regions in VB .Net 2003.
