I'm using new VS2010 Sharepoint Project. I can add a site column, content type, list definition without any problem.

Is it possible to also have an InfoPath form included in a Feature?

I want to be able to create the form using InfoPath, somehow export it, somehow get it into the feature definition so it can be compliled in the WSP package.

Once I have this I would like to bind it to a list instance / defininition view item field.

Anyone done this yet? Is it even possible, and if yes how?

Is it a workflow form or a template for a forms library or something else? – Dennis G Dec 14 '10 at 15:42
It is the edit form for a list item in a custom list. – user879 Dec 15 '10 at 8:24

In VS2008 we were actually able to do InfoPath development using an InfoPath add-in. They took this functionality away in VS2010 for some reason. I don't believe it would have helped you anyway as the form could still not be included in a feature.

It is less than ideal, but I think the best you are going to be able to do is to deploy the form template using PowerShell.
