method returns the full path to the view script that is passed
as an argument.
Also, all the properties of the parent view are available to the nested view.
<h1>Example Page</h1> <?php // view script: index.php // add a another view as a partial echo $this->partial('_list', $this->list); // adding the .php extension is optional ?>
