AbstractView object (Object/DOM)

An object that belongs to the DOM level 2 views module.


DOM level - 2
JavaScript - 1.5
Netscape - 6.0
JavaScript syntax:NmyAbstractView = myMouseEvent.view
NmyAbstractView = myUIEvent.view

This is part of a new suite of functionality introduced at DOM level 2 which provides a way of looking at documents from alternative points of view. At present only the Abstract and Document views are standardized and, because the capabilities are quite new, implementations may be incomplete at this stage.
