Windows Media Player 11 SDK VIEW Element
The VIEW element contains the user interface details of a skin, and uses the attributes, methods, and event handlers shown in the following tables.
Multiple VIEW elements can be defined as children of the THEME element of a skin to provide different interfaces for different situations. VIEW elements cannot be specified as children of any other element, and they contain all other skin elements. Note that each view has its own variable scope, which means it cannot share attribute values with other views.
The view global attribute can be used to reference a specific VIEW element from anywhere within it. This is an alternative to using its id attribute, which must be used from within other VIEW elements or from within the THEME element.
