1 views_plugin_display.inc public views_plugin_display::unpack_handler(&$translatable, $storage, $option, $definition, $parents)

Special method to unpack items that have handlers.

This method was specified in the option_definition() as the method to utilize to export fields, filters, sort criteria, relationships and arguments. This passes the export off to the individual handlers so that they can export themselves properly.
