In a custom Lightning Aura component, is it possible to render an out of the box Salesforce page or a page built with the Lightning App Builder within the layout of the custom component?

For example, if I wanted to show the Case view page inside a custom layout, is there a way to reference that page like:

    <!-- My custom layout stuff -->

    <!-- Show the out of the box case view page -->
    <lightning:showOOTBPage object="case" mode="view" recordId="1234567890" />

Also, is it possible to show that page in a modal?

For rendering out of the box record detail page you can use . A force:recordView component represents a read-only view of a record. You can display the record view using different layout types. There are two different types:

  • MINI
  • FULL (default)

Salesforce Documentation: recordView

  • That looks promising but I tried and it rendered no html <div class="my-case-view"><force:recordView recordId="500g000000Fw2kYAAR" type="MINI"/></div> - renders as - <div class="my-case-view" data-aura-rendered-by="523:0"><!--render facet: 3:487;a--><!--render facet: 526:0--></div>. The record Id used was from an existing Case record that I can see in Salesforce. Any idea why this might happen? Aug 4, 2017 at 19:42
  • Interestingly, <force:recordEdit /> renders fine.... Aug 4, 2017 at 19:45
  • And using type="FULL" in renderView works fine too. Seems like type="MINI" is not working for me but that is probably OK. Thanks Aug 4, 2017 at 19:48
