I had a custom list which has some Custom Views created.. If I go and modify a View by Web Interface in List1, List2 doesn't show that modify.. Is there any way to do this?

In event handler I cannot listen to "view modify" or something like that..

Any suggestion?

Thank you very much!

Views are per list instance, not list type, even if they can be defined in custom list schema. You can't change a view and propogate the changes out-of-the-box. You'll have to code or script the changes if you want to automate it. – Steve B Jun 11 '12 at 9:59
I believe a view is specific to a list/library, not sure if there is a way to share the same view across different list. If you do find the answer let me know? I'm also curious to know if there is a way. =) – TheLazyChap Jun 11 '12 at 13:22
