Infopath form Id

If you`ve read any SharePoint workflow book or blog about deploying infopath forms with a visual studio workflow you`ve no doubt come across the method of adding your infopath form to your workflow, changing the deployment type to `element file`; deploying your solution, going into central admin, under General Application Settings, then under the infopath section clicking manage form templates, picking your form out of the list, checking it`s properties and finally getting the ID.

Wow that`s a lot of clicks, when instead all you had to do was go to the file Menu in Infopath and click Form Template properties.

Is this going to change your life? Not really, but hopefully make it marginally better 9 to 5.
