A logical table whose data are not physically stored. A view is defined to access a subset of the columns stored in a row, access a set of columns stored in different rows, or avoid creating a redundant copy of data that is already stored.
As far as DataSplice is concerned, a view is the basic object that users see. In essence, a view is a configurable "window" into a database. This basically consists of a SQL statement defining the target data for the view as well as additional meta-information relating to how the view should be accessed and manipulated be the user. Unfortunately view is a fairly overloaded word in the context of databases. It is also usually used to describe a pre-configured statement in a database to provide a view of data that is not explicitly stored in a single table. In this context it is similar to a DataSplice view (a SQL Statement) except it does not define any of the additional information present in DataSplice views. In fact, DataSplice views can certainly be set up to access database views simply by providing a SQL statement that queries the latter. In many cases where complex SQL is needed to provide the desired data this is necessary for DataSplice to be able to perform the correct query. More Information
1. The current display of information in the infobase. A full view displays the entire infobase (you may scroll from the top of the infobase to the bottom). A narrow view displays a sub-set of the infobase. 2. One of the predefined pane configurations for Cataloger's Desktop (normal, query, document, contents, and hit list).
A means of accessing a subset of the database as if it were a table. The view may: be restricted to named columns, be restricted to specific rows, change column names, derive new columns, and give access to a combination of related tables and/or views. Oracle, 1998. ()
A view is a document which displays data from a data table. You can also update and insert data into a data table via a view. A single data table can have multiple views, and each different view can display selected parts of the complete data table.
In Dreamweaver you have two views that you can choose to work from: Standard and Layout. Standard is basic and Layout gives you more design options. You can draw tables and cells in Layout view and then switch to Standard view to add properties or attributes to your tables and cells. You have more design choice with Layout view.
Cross-application view of several tables in the ABAP Dictionary. When you create a table, you assign a key to it. However, the fields in the key may be inadequate for solving some problems, so you can generate a view from several tables or parts of tables. A view-led Customizing transaction is used for configuring tables for simple business objects. View-led transactions group together all relevant fields for a Customizing object in a view.
A named virtual table that represents the result set of a SQL query. A view does not store data; it only displays the data from its source table or tables. For a user, a view looks and behaves like a database table. You can use views to simplify a complex database structure or to limit the columns that a group of users can see in a table.
A SELECT statement that is stored in the database as an object. It allows users to see a subset of rows or columns from one or more tables. Each time a user uses a view of a particular table, or combination of tables, it is recomputed from the information stored in those tables. Views are useful for security purposes, and to tailor the appearance of database information to make data access straightforward.
Use View to view the content of an object. Selecting View opens the document or object for viewing only; you cannot make any changes to the object's content. The object is not checked out of the docbase.
A subset of a database. A virtual table in the relational data model in which data from real tables are combined so that users can work with just one (virtual) table instead of several complete tables. A view is not the data itself but a way of formatting the database to extract certain data without physically altering it. (See relation, table)
(1) A rectangular section of a window that exists outside the area of the scroll bar alleys and window decoration such as borders and title bars. (2) In Oracle Graphics, region of the Layout or Chart Template editors that focuses on a specific section of that editor. (3) A custom tailored presentation of the data in one or more tables. A view can also be thought of as a "stored query." Views do not actually contain or store data; rather, they derive their data from the tables on which they are based, called base tables. Base tables can in turn be actual tables or can themselves be views. Views can be queried, updated, inserted into, and deleted from, with restrictions. All operations performed on a view actually affect the base tables of the view.
A dynamically controlled picture of the contents in a database that allows a programmer to determine what information the user sees and manipulates. A view represents a virtual table based on a specified SELECT statement.
view is the result of a SQL query stored in the Oracle Data Dictionary. One can think of it as a virtual table or presentation of data from one or more tables. Views are useful for security and information hiding, but can cause problems if nested too deep. View details can be queried from the dictionary by querying either USER_VIEWS, ALL_VIEWS or DBA_VIEWS.
In database theory, a view is a virtual or logical table composed of the result set of a query. Unlike ordinary tables (base tables) in a relational database, a view is not part of the physical schema: it is a dynamic, virtual table computed or collated from data in the database. Changing the data in a table alters the data shown in the view.
A form-specific display setting that can be saved with a form template and applied to form data when the form is being filled out. Users can switch between views to choose the amount of data shown in the form.
1. the visible area of a computer generated map including various map elements which may alternatively be expressed or suppressed within a view, creating a unique representation based on the visible information. 2. the method for grouping and displaying the analysis layer defined by political boundaries such as a state, region or division. For example: Texas would be an example of a state view, and New England would be an example of a census division view.
A representation of a set of system elements and the relationships among them. A view shows a particular perspective of the system (e.g., code units, runtime elements) and may show just part or the entire system. A set of views–not a single one–convey the architecture.
Nautilus component that enables you to display a folder in a particular way. For example, Nautilus contains an icon view which enables you to display the contents of a folder as icons. Nautilus also contains a list view which enables you to display the contents of a folder as a list.
(1) An object in a Smalltalk program that displays text or graphics representing information in a model. A view is tightly coupled with a controller; together, view-controller pairs form user-interface object such as widget s. also MVC architecture.(2) A display region of a Smalltalk browser. For example, in a System Browser, the category view displays a list of categories in the system, whereas the code view displays textual lines of code.
A view is, depending on what’s meant, either an ad view or a page view. Usually an ad view is what’s meant. There can be multiple ad views per page views. View counting should consider that a small percentage of users choose to turn the graphics off (not display the images) in their browser.
A well-defined representation of user data, many applications are designed around a set of fundamental data views, these may be implemented in a layer above the engine but below the UI. See also: MVC engine
(1) To display and look at data on screen. (2) A special display of data, created as needed. A view temporarily ties two or more files together so that the combined files can be displayed, printed, or queried. The user specifies the fields to be included. The original files are not permanently linked or altered; however, if the system allows editing, the data in the original files will be changed.
In satellite communications, the quality or degree of visibility of a satellite to a ground station; i.e., the degree to which the satellite is sufficiently above the horizon and clear of obstructions so that it is within a clear line of sight by an Earth terminal.
1. How something is looked at or an opinion. 2. What something looks like at a distance. 3. An attractive panorama visible from a piece of property. 4. A drawing in a set of building plans depicting a structure viewed from a specific angle.
a specific workbook configuration that can include the window size and position, panes and frozen titles, zoom magnification, selected cells, display options, row heights and column widths, and print settings
the state or configuration of a Montage Desktop and the application windows it controls. This includes the Desktop window's sizing and placement, the layout and settings of its Shortcuts, viewers, and other forms, and the state of any external applications it has launched. The view is what you see when you open a montage.
Consists of a StarTeam folder hierarchy and the items associated with each folder in that hierarchy either frozen at a specific moment or time or starting from that moment in time and differentiating itself from its parent view afterwards. A StarTeam project and its root view are identical. Other views can start with a different StarTeam folder as its root, etc. The behavior of the view may or may not permit branching, may or may not be read only, and may be blank (having no apparent connection to the parent view—an empty subset of the parent view's contents).
In WebKF, Views provide the framework in which notes are organized. They are like folders, and can be thought of as topics, categories or areas of discussion. For example, a "Welcome" view can include several notes titled "Read this first", "Course Overview" and "Next Steps".
A description of the relationship between files in the depot and a client workspace, label, or branch. The view determines which files from the depot are included in the mapping, and the names by which the mapped files are known. See client view, label view, branch view.
a container adaptor, that provides a container interface to parts of the data or a rearrangement of the data or transformed data or a suitable combination of the data sets of the underlying container(s)
a definition of a virtual data set. The definition is named and stored for later use. This file contains no data but describes or defines data that are stored elsewhere. See also PROC SQL view, SAS data view, and view descriptor.
Authoring tools may render the same content in a variety of ways; each rendering is called a "view". Some authoring tools will have several different types of view, and some allow views of several documents at once. For instance, one view may show raw markup, a second may show a structured tree, a third may show markup with rendered objects while a final view shows an example of how the document may appear if it were to be rendered by a particular browser. A typical way to distinguish views in a graphic environment is to place each in a separate window.
a message expressing a belief about something; the expression of a belief that is held with confidence but not substantiated by positive knowledge or proof; "his opinions appeared frequently on the editorial page"
Switching to 'View' mode will allow you to see how the course will appear to a student. On some screens 'View' only approximates what a student will see. To see the actual student view, log on to your course as a student.
A Features field to indicate the views available from the property. (Bay, Bridges, Canyon, City, Forest/Woods, etc.) NOTE: text can be entered to further describe the view. For example: San Francisco (Bay), Golden Gate (Bridge).
