I used client side rendering on a list view to override how the items inside it should be rendered.

The javascript:

var overrideContext = {};
overrideContext.BaseViewID = 3;
overrideContext.ListTemplateType = 951325;
overrideContext.Templates = {};
overrideContext.Templates.Header= renderHeader;
overrideContext.Templates.Item  = renderItem;
overrideContext.Templates.Footer = renderFooter;

The view:

<View BaseViewID="3" DisplayName="Overzicht" Type="HTML" SetupPath="Pages\ViewPage.aspx" Url="Overzicht.aspx">
    <XslLink Default="TRUE">main.xsl</XslLink>
    <JSLink Default="TRUE">~siteCollectionLayouts/RenderSummary.js</JSLink>
    <Toolbar Type="FreeForm" Position="After" />

The rendering works if the view is embedded in another page, but if you visit the list and select the view to which the jslink is applied errors occur:

Getting Error Message for Exception Microsoft.SharePoint.ApplicationRuntime.SafeControls+UnsafeControlException: Een webonderdeel of besturingselement voor een webformulier op deze pagina kan niet worden weergegeven of geïmporteerd. Het type is niet gevonden of staat niet als veilig geregistreerd.

Does anyone have an idea what I could try to change to get the view page displaying as well?

Turns out the error was not caused by using the jslink but rather by a missing 'WebPartZoneID' attribute on the view definition. The following fixed it:

<View BaseViewID="3" DisplayName="Overzicht" WebPartZoneID="Main" Type="HTML" SetupPath="Pages\ViewPage.aspx" Url="Overzicht.aspx">
