Name

condition delayed boolean, conditiondelayedboolean, kPMConditionConditionDelayedBoolean — A delayed constant condition.

Synopsis

condition delayed boolean structure { invert, type, can perform };
invert : boolean, default, optional
type : string, choice
can perform : boolean, default

Description

A delayed constant condition.

Used for testing compound conditions. There is no reason to use this condition in deployed events. Where a constant condition is required, use the immediate edition of this condition, condition boolean.

A delayed condition is one that does not respond immediately. The engine performs conditions in an optimised order to avoid testing expensive conditions; a delayed condition is expensive.

Fields

invert. Invert the condition's conclusion.

Conditions are designed to positively identify specific states. Many events will want a condition to confirm that a specific state is not occuring. To reverse the role of a positive condition, use the invert field.

If a condition is true, and the invert field is set, the condition will invert the true and return false.

If a condition is false, and the invert field is set, the condition will invert the false and return true.

invert is a boolean. If invert is omitted, the default false is used. invert is optional.

type. Type of condition to test.

type is a string. type must be delayed boolean, kPMConditionType_DelayedBoolean.

can perform. Condition immediately resolves to this value.

If can perform is true, the condition immediately resolves to true.

If can perform is false, the condition immediately resolves to false.

can perform is a boolean. If can perform is omitted, the default true is used.
