Create Event Handler in SharePoint with Visual Studio 2010

Working with the new Visual Studio 2010 has become so easy that even I can write my own event handlers within no time. Traditionally you'll go thru alot of pain of writing classes, creating features, and then deploying and activation of those features.

here you go in simple steps:

first create new project, by selecting the SharePoint Event Receiver project type.

Enter the site for debugging your code and select deploy as a farm solution

Select the List Item Events type, for Announcements (e.g.) for an item is being deleted

Write your code to handle whatever you want to achieve.

You can build the project, or just simply deploy it to your site if you are sure there are no errors.

Now sit back and relax Visual Studio 2010 will do all the work for you, and deploy the project into correct areas and do whatever is required to be done such as snk, .wsp, web.config, feature activation etc etc.

Now the moment of truth, i'll try to delete an announcement from my site 

and there you go the code has worked, (i don't know how hahaha)

if you notice in your project you had an xml file Elements.xml it has a ListTemplateID="104", here is the list of all id(s) which you might need.
