Use this tag for questions relating to the View component of the Model-View-Controller (MVC) design pattern.
A View, in the context of a Model View Controller (MVC) architecture, is a software class that contains a template and data form and produces a response for the browser. It receives data from the Controller of the MVC and packages it and presents it to the browser for display.
The View is not very autonomous - it is like a black box where some data is thrown at it and it gives a display to the user in a browser friendly manner. It collects the input data from data sources, finds the template upon invocation, and combines them into HTML output at runtime.
