    Open the keyless entry system example and create a view 'NewView'.

    scKeylessEntrySystem
    model = systemcomposer.loadModel('KeylessEntryArchitecture');
    view = model.createView('NewView');

    Open the Architecture Views Gallery to see the new view named 'NewView'.

    model.openViews

    Create a subgroup.

    group = view.Root.createSubGroup('MyGroup')
    group =

    TermDefinitionApplicationMore Information
    viewA view shows a customizable subset of elements in a model. Views can be filtered based on stereotypes or names of components, ports, and interfaces, along with the name, type, or units of an interface element. Construct views by pulling in elements manually. Views create a simplified way to work with complex architectures by focusing on certain parts of the architecture design.

    You can use different types of views to represent the system:

    • Operational views demonstrate how a system will be used and should be well integrated with requirements analysis.

    • Functional views focus on what the system must do to operate.

    • Physical views show how the system is constructed and configured.

    A viewpoint represents a stakeholder perspective that specifies the contents of the view.
