    Solution explorer display form names

    In 2005 is there a way to make the solution explorer display form names as well as the file names, the way VB6 does like "main (Main.frm)"?

    I don't think so. Prior to .NET, a VB .FRM file always contained exactly one form definition. In VB.NET, forms are defined in standard class files (.VB), which may contain any number of form classes (including zero).

    If the form only has 1 class it looks like it should be displayed there (which I'm sure is probably 99% of the time), if it has more than 1 it could always display "Class1 ... (filename.vb)".

    Thanks for the answer.
