Subject [SCXML] Polling in datamodel
Date Tue, 05 May 2009 11:53:39 GMT
I´m back with another thousand questions!

Still with my datamodel like this:
<scxml version="1.0" initialstate="176" xmlns:cs="" xmlns="">

<data name="DynamicData">
<Data_1 xmlns="" id="1" type="Integer">0</Data_1>
<Data_2 xmlns="" id="2" type="Integer">0</Data_2>
<Data_3 xmlns="" id="3" type="String">none</Data_2>
<data name="DDChange"/>
<data name="DDValue"/>
<data name="DDType"/>
<data name="Indication_1" expr="false"/>
Later on i set the data:
<state id="StateB">
<log label="Renegade" expr="'Entering state: StateB'"/>
<log label="Renegade" expr="Data(DynamicData,'Data_1')"/>
<assign location="Data(DynamicData,'Data_1')"
<assign name="DDValue" expr="Data(DynamicData,'Data_1')"/>
<assign name="DDChange" expr="'Data_1'"/>
<log label="Renegade" expr="Data(DynamicData,'Data_1')"/>


So now here´s the problem.

As you see I haven´t used the custom action, but an rather ugly hack where I
do an assign name after I do the assign location to trigger a call to the
"set" function in the context.

In this version I also do another assign where I assign another name with
the value. All my data are named Data_XX so i screen the calls to set byt
looking for the ones that are named Data_XX. When I recieve a call for
Data_XX I would like to know what the value is, which I in this case have
solved by assigning another variable with it earlier, when i get a "set"
call named Data_xx i know that the variable DDValue contains the value of
this data. Not pretty, but OK and working so far.
Now I would like to be able to see what "type" the data is aswell. How do I
do that? And: Is there a less spaghetti way to poll the value of the data
from where I am (In the context) when I have the "name" of it. (The name in
this case is Data_1, Data_2 or Data_3, I also know that the data=name is
DynamicData) .

Due to lack of time I would prefer if i wouldn´t have to "redo" to much of
the scxml, but is this possible to do it my way otherwise? Or do I have to
do it over.

Best Regards
