Deploying resources using features

Overview: Feature deployment has changed in SP2010 from MOSS. In MOSS we added files to the 12 hive and deployed them via a feature. In SP2010 the feature is package slightly differently and is marginally easier to create using VS2010 because of the tools. I have VS2010 and the CKSDev tools installed.

Steps to add an xslt file to your style library using a feature in SP2010:
1.> In VS2010 create a new Element;
2.> Under the element add and xslt, change the "Deployment Type" property;
3.> Move the elements to "Items in the Feature" default is "Items in the Solution";
4.> Modify the elements.xml file;

5.> Ensure the itemStyleCustom.xsl exists in the Xsl Style library.

This is pretty simple - check you have done all the steps. This declaritive solution is the best way to do tis in my opinion. You can do it programatically through a feature receiver.
