Custom Title on built-in webpart

What to do if you want to change the title in the built-in webpart like Tasks or so. Your own title or just to avoid tasks (1) and tasks (2) if you add two views of them to a page. In onet.xml you add them as view:

  BaseViewID="7" WebPartZoneID="Middle" 

The solution is to add cdata element and webpart tag within it. So now replace this with:

  BaseViewID="7" WebPartZoneID="Middle"
    <WebPart xmlns="">
      Microsoft.SharePoint, Version=, Culture=neutral,
    <Title>Task Title as I want it</Title>

Now you can change the title, and all other properties (chrometype, helpurl and more) as you want. One thing is to mention. If you just copy the onet.xml to the Sharepoint Root (as you can do with CKSDev), you must restart IIS:

iisreset /noforce
