Most people would likely answer a question like this by saying to look at Page Layouts but they are no good to me. I already have custom Page Layouts for use in a publishing page but what I want to do is to set a Text Layout using code.

When I create a new team site with the wiki homepage feature enabled I can view a page and edit a page at SitePages/Home.aspx. In the ribbon there is an option called 'Text Layouts'. I can select something such as "3 columns with header". I have searched everywhere for how I can set this in code but have found nothing.

Can anyone help with this or even help with creating custom Text Layouts?

It's not really supported but seems someone has made a solution at Create web part pages with custom layouts in SharePoint 2010

Thanks - I will have a look. It doesn't sound like it is possible to programmatically add webparts via code to wiki pages as well as changing the Text Layout. – ringo747 May 17 '12 at 8:53
