Forms designer forms provision

Below I asked about cross site lookup columns provision programmatically. What about forms provision? I know I can import and export forms. Can I do it programmatically?

    Sure, you can use the following web service:

    /_vti_bin/formsdesigner/fdservice.svc

    Method called PublishForms:

    PublishForms(Guid listId, String contentTypeId, Guid groupId, Forms forms, string layout, out ServiceFault fault);

    If you don't use groups functionality, please, pass empty guid as groupId argument. Layout string is content of exported XFDS-file.

    Hello,

    i tried calling the webservice, but unfortunatelly, Visual Studio cannot access the service for making a reference for it, neither I could directly call the service from browser, I only get a HTTP 400 ("Bad request") error when doing so!

    I hope you can help me with accessing the webservice or get rid of the error.

    [#9]: Hi Andrew,

    What do you mean? Do you want to export a form with the help of the web service? You can retrieve layouts of forms from the site's properties (property bag):

    fd_{listID}_{contentTypeID}_{formType}
