Content Type Builder

Hello All,

Great toolset!!  I've been creating alot of content types in visual studio and while I don't really mind typing in the site columns and field refs for each custom column it would be great to have a gui for it or a spi from the content type context menu.

Hi John,

Thanks for your suggestion. This will be copied to a work item.

Did you know that you could import the content type and fields directly from the site. If you browse the site in the server explorer and open the content types or site columns node you can import the group of an individual element into your project. This could speed up creation as you can build them in the SP UI then import into VS with very little extra effort.

Thanks Wes,

Yeah I realize I can import from SP, but it just seems like I am in VS already creating my features and code and things, it should be easy to create columns.
