I'm working on a vb.net project (Winform) and I'm starting to get more code than I can manage in one file. Can someone give a brief tutorial on how to put the classes that I have working in another file(s)? Just a basic template will do.

personally I usually put one class in one file

Person.vb
Business.vb

etc ...

But how big is your project? Would it make sense to break things out into a basic library for reuse? Separate your business logic from your objects and your presentation and interface logic as well?

You just use the "Partial" keyword:

Or you can use "Regions" to manage the class VISUALLY in the IDE:
