Form Size C#

I need to develop (in design time) forms to fit a monitor with screen resolution 2560 x 1440, but my monitor's maximum resolution is 1920 x 1080.  I've done some research, as well as my own experiments, and found that MS Visual Studio (2010) limits the form size to 12 pixels larger in each dimension than your maximum screen resolution.  Is there a way to overcome this limitation?  

Thanks.

This is a limitation in windows forms.
The only way I've seen this done through various articles is to code it in
public Form1() {
        InitializeComponent();
        this.Size = new Size(2560, 1440);
    }

Open in new window

On the Form set AutoScroll to True.  Now drop a Panel on the Form and set its Location to (0, 0).  Change the Size of the Panel to your desired Target Size.  Now you can at least design the form in the Panel with the scrollbars...

Thanks.  So, I guess I can combine the two answers given and use  the panel to design the form and then resize the form at runtime to match desire size (and fit the panel within it).  I will give it a shot.
