I have about three views that will be used; Here's Daniel Wehner's answer:
$view = views_get_view(); $view->set_display(); $view->filter['foo']->value = 'bar'; print $view->preview($display_id, $args);
I built this based off his code, which while works, could be improved if including views is going to be a regular activity throughout your project:
$view = views_get_view('nodequeue_3'); $view->set_display(); $content['raw_markup'] = array( '#type' => 'markup', '#markup' => $view->preview(), );
I'm also thinking this might not be done that often, because if you can build a module, why use views?
The utility of views should not be overlooked, in combination with (or without) a custom module.
Thanks for the patience, this community is awesome!
