Add SharePoint Column Support

While I absolutely love the new VS 2012 projects for SharePoint List and Content Types (great job!), we still have to manually enter columns via XML. This is very tedious.... Seems like it would be easy to have a drop down box that lists the OTB columns (single line of text, number, dropdown, date, etc.) and upon selection, the column type XML would be generated - then we would only have to do minor tweaks to the XML. You have dropdowns for the list and content type, please add for columns.

        Hi,

        May I know if you want the column support in the List Designer or in the Site Column item template? You are able to create a new column in the List Designer by inputing your own name (without selecting anything from the drop-down list). You are able to customize its type and other properties.

        Thanks,
        Xiaoying Guo
