1 view.inc view::execute_display($display_id = NULL, $args = array())

Execute the given display, with the given arguments. To be called externally by whatever mechanism invokes the view, such as a page callback, hook_block, etc.

This function should NOT be used by anything external as this returns data in the format specified by the display. It can also have other side effects that are only intended for the 'proper' use of the display, such as setting page titles and breadcrumbs.

If you only want to view the display, use view::preview() instead.
