In the Part I of this series, we were pleased to announce the SharePoint List Designer as one of the new features introduced in Visual Studio 11 Beta. Using the List Designer, you can quickly and visually build a SharePoint list within Visual Studio without having to create a list first in SharePoint Designer and then import it into Visual Studio.
To familiarize you with the List Designer, in Part I of this series, we provided a link to a MSDN Help topic that walks you through the process of creating a list and a content type by using the List Designer. If you’ve used the List Designer, you might want more details about its functionality. This blog post provides more information about it.
