View Conventions

  • Views rendered by a controller should be written into @app/views/controllerID folder.
  • Views rendered by a widget should be written into widgetPath/views folder.

Following controller methods can be called to render views within controller:

  • render() : Renders the mentioned view file and applies a layout.
  • renderPartial() : Renders the mentioned view but without applying a layout.
  • renderAjax() : Renders a view without a layout and injects all registered JS scripts and CSS files.
  • renderFile() : Renders a view file in the specified path.
  • renderContent() : Renders a static ring.

Following controller methods can be called to render views within another view:
