Wondering if and how this is possible.

I have a Document Library list definition that I use to create several lists. I want to modify the AllItems.aspx so that there is a header with the lists name at the top

<div class="headerStyle">
   (list name)

The final result would be


Title Description Uploaded By Upload Date

Does someone have an example? Ideally i would like to do this in Visual Studio and not via SD.

The main scenario to modify list view is to use XSLT. You can create your custom template as describen in this post. Then you should override main.xsl in your list definition.
