The empty view is a special type of view. It is always generated automatically in a window or a view set area, provided that no view has been embedded manually. It may also be preferable to embed an empty view in a non-empty window as well. Just like a normal view, the empty view occupies a certain area of a window at runtime and can be used to hide a different view, for example, using specific controls.

When you create an empty view, an inbound plug with the default name ShowEmptyView is created.
