# Overview

function View(path: string, options?: Object): MethodDecorator;
Param Type Description
path string Relative path to the view file. options

# Description

Use a view and sends the rendered HTML string to the client. Optional parameter:

  • viewOptions, an object whose properties define local variables for the view.

The view argument is a string that is the file path of the view file to render. This can be an absolute path, or a path relative to the views setting. If the path does not contain a file extension, then the view engine setting determines the file extension. If the path does contain a file extension, then Express will load the module for the specified template engine (via require()) and render it using the loaded module’s __express function.

For more information, see Using template engines with Express (opens new window).

NOTE: The view argument performs file system operations like reading a file from disk and evaluating Node.js modules, and as so for security reasons should not contain input from the end-user.
