Following on from my recent post (Provisioning Web Parts to a Page), I had a question asking how to do this for List Views. Below is a code sample showing how to do this…

   1: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
   2: <Elements xmlns="">  
   3:   <Module Name="XYZCustomPages" RootWebOnly="True">    
   4:     <File Path="XYZCustomPages\Home.aspx" Url="Home.aspx" IgnoreIfAlreadyExists="true">      
   5:       <View List="Lists/Tasks" BaseViewID="0" WebPartZoneID="Left" WebPartOrder="100">
   6:         <![CDATA[
   7:           <WebPart xmlns="">
   8:             <Assembly>Microsoft.SharePoint, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c</Assembly>
   9:             <TypeName>Microsoft.SharePoint.WebPartPages.ListViewWebPart</TypeName>
  10:             <Title>My Tasks</Title>
  11:           </WebPart>
  12:         ]]>
  13:       </View>
  14:     </File>  
  15:   </Module>
  16: </Elements>
