Requests the contents of a view for a SharePoint list. A view is a file containing a named set of rules describing how the items in the list are displayed. Each list has a default view associated with it.

  <SetVar Name="Cmd">RenderView</SetVar>
  <SetVar Name="View">GUID</SetVar>
  <SetList Scope="Request">GUID</SetList>
  <SetVar Name="UrlBase">URL</SetVar>




ID = "Text"

Name = "Cmd"

Must be set to RenderView.

Name = "View"

A string that contains the GUID for the view.

Scope = "Request"

When set to Request, the Scope attribute sets the variable for the rest of the request, unless the variable is changed by another tag. When the Scope attribute is omitted, the variable remains set until the end tag.
