Owning Palette: Statechart Development Objects
Requires: Statechart Module
Defines a state, which is a unique condition in which the statechart can be.
For example, a light bulb connected to a circuit might have two states, ON and OFF. In the ON state, the circuit provides power to the light bulb. In the OFF state, the circuit does not provide power to the light bulb.
In the previous figure, the inner border (1) is where you click to create transitions between states. The outer border (2) is where you click to manipulate the state on the statechart diagram. For example, you can press the <Ctrl> key and click and drag this border to duplicate a state.
Within a region, each state must have a unique name. The statechart can be in one state in a region at a time.
