Dear All,
I am working on a project and i wanted to include some of my previous works from another project, i included that project by following steps:
VS2005 --> Solution Exp. --> Right click --> Add --> Existing Project.
after doing this when i wanted to use the same project it's form name is not shown in the VS2005 intellisense.

Can any one help me out with this?

This is not the issue. Can't you see that the described operation is not enough?

Hey! SA,
i found the solution, thanx for showing your interest in my question...

And what is it, will you share with us?
However, this is simple, never mind...

That's because when you want to use the included project in a different project, you have to add a reference to it in the project you want to use it in.
If you have a project called MyProject, in a solution called MySolution, and you have added an existing Project to the solution (called MyOtherProject) then:
In MyProject, right click on "References" and select "Add Reference...".
In the dialog that appears (eventually), select the "Projects" tab.
In the list, select "MyOtherProject" and press "OK".

You may want to add a using MyOtherProject line to the top of each source code file in MyProject as well.

Great answer! One small correction though, the question is tagged as VB.NET - so it should be Imports MyOtherProject

Picky, picky, picky! :laugh:

I don't care what VB.NET says, it's my 5.
Although the project is now included in the solution, you still need to add a reference to the added project in the original project, and you still need to include a using statement in your code files of the original project that need to interact with the added project.

Hope this helps

Essentially same (correct) answer as Griff's ~same time, so a 5.
