Create a widget to associate with this view.

aWindowIID IID for Widget type that this view should have associated with it. if nsull, then no width will be created for this view
aWidgetInitData data used to initialize this view's widget before its create is called.
aNative native window that will be used as parent of aWindowIID. if nsnull, then parent will be derived from parent view and it's ancestors
aWindowType is either content, UI or inherit from parent window. This is used to expose what type of window this is to assistive technology like screen readers.
