Use Drupal views to create, manage, and display lists of content. For example, a list of blog posts, a list of upcoming events or a list of users. For more information, see Creating views.
A View can be displayed as a Page or a Block and use a specific format for displaying the content. These including Unformatted list, Grid, Table and HTML list. DX8 provides a new format called a View template. These allow you to layout the structure of your View page or View block. They use View modes and View mode templates to display each result from the View.
This is illustrated in the diagram below.
