In this chapter, we will switch from the admin user interface to code, creating a view within a module and other examples of using code in conjunction with Drupal and Views architectures to manipulate the content. These methods should only be considered if you are comfortable with PHP and the Drupal architecture and API. The benefits of using code include more granular control, as well as the ability to achieve behaviors otherwise unavailable. The drawbacks are that the Views environment can be very complex, and one can easily break the environment.
The differences between using the Views UI to create a view and doing it in a module is that the UI does the coding for you and makes it more convenient to make changes to the view afterwards. That said, the UI method does not make it easy to distribute a ready-made view, nor does it make it facilitate tying such a view to other code.
In this artice by J. Ayen Green, author of Drupal 7 Views 3 Cookbook, we are going to cover the following topics:
- Programming a view
- Handling a view field
- Styling a view field
