[R-pkg-devel] Interplay between knitr() and View()

Hi All:

My package allows the user to search for information about the data available, and the information is returned in a dataframe. I had long been looking for a nice way to display the results  (the datasets' metadata),  and wasn't too happy with anything until I tried the View() command,  which does exactly what I want.

The problem is I can't seem to find a way to make View() and knitr() work nice together in creating the vignette. Given the way View() works I doubt there is a way,  but any suggestions of how I can show what the user will see when the given the command in the package from within my vignette?
