How to change default view of any list?

Hi All,

May times we need to make our own view and want to make that view as default view. So here we need to change AllItems View to your own created view.

Here is a simple way to do this.

SPWeb objWeb = {current_web};
SPList objTaskList = objWeb.Lists["Tasks"];
objWeb.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true;

objTaskList.Views["MyViewName"].DefaultView = true;

objWeb.AllowUnsafeUpdates = false;

That's it. Now you have your vreated view as default view.
