Frequently Asked Questions - View and View Controller

This section provides answers to question about views and view controllers.


What is a View ?

A view describes the layout and behavior of a rectangular area of a user interface. 

Every Web Dynpro application has at least one view. The layout of a view is made up of different user interface elements, which can be nested in each other. The positioning of interface elements in one view is supported by the supplied layout variants.  A view also contains a controller and a context. The data to which the elements of the view can be bound are stored and managed in the view context, enabling them to be represented or used on the screen. The view controller can contain methods for data retrieval or for processing user input. Check the attachment diagram for View in 'Attachments' tab.
