Описание An object view can be created as a subview of another object view. The type of the superview must be the immediate supertype of the type of the object view being created. Thus, you can build an object view hierarchy which has a one-to-one correspondence to the type hierarchy. This does not imply that every view hierarchy must span the entire corresponding type hierarchy. The view hierarchy can be rooted at any subtype of the type hierarchy. Furthermore, it does not have to encompass the entire subhierarchy.
