Shows how to work with Project’s view and add column to the default view (which is shown when MPP file is opened in MS Project).

// create an empty project without views 
var project = new Project();
project.Set(Prj.Name, "Test View Project");

// Modify the default view (it's a Gantt chart view).
// Or you can select view by name or by View Screen using project.View collection.
var view = (GanttChartView) project.DefaultView;

TableField newColumn = new TableField()
    AlignData = HorizontalStringAlignment.Center,
    Title = "My new column",
    Width = 30,
    Field = Field.TaskActualDuration


// WriteViewData flag should be used to persist modifications of view's properties.
project.Save(OutDir + "ModifyView_output.mpp", new Saving.MPPSaveOptions
    WriteViewData = true
