Comments

View context space is a vector space that is assigned to a specific object. Whenever that object is being viewed on the screen as a target object, this view context space will be used as the area that will be displayed instead of showing the object only. This is used mainly in setting the dimensions of an object that will be displayed by the toolkit when the same object is a target of a hyperlink.

To make sure that the view context is understood correctly an example will be needed:

image\X2.gif

After the end-user clicks on the hyperlink, which has the blue rectangle above as its target, the view is changed from the first figure to the second one, taking the view context space into consideration.
