Static factory method to load a list of views based upon a $where clause.

Although this method could be implemented to simply iterate over views::load(), that would be very slow. Buiding the views externally from unified queries is much faster.

Provides the view object type and associated methods.


An object to contain all of the data to generate a view, plus the member functions to build the view query, execute the query and render the output.

  foreach (view::db_objects() as $key) {
    $object_name = "views_$key";
    $result = db_query("SELECT * FROM {{$object_name}} WHERE vid IN (:vids) ORDER BY vid, position", array(':vids' => array_keys($names)));

      // Because it can get complicated with this much indirection,
      // make a shortcut reference.
      $location = &$views[$names[$object->vid]]->$key;

      // If we have a basic id field, load the item onto the view based on
      // this ID, otherwise push it on.
