DriveWorks Pro 15: Store Specification [send feedback...]

Store Specification

The Store Specification Task stores a specification and leaves it open.

Implementing this task will allow a user to periodically store a specification so it can be edited in the event of a crash or accidentally cancelling the specification.

Its intention is to provide assurance, for example when entering a large amount of data into user forms, that the specification can be stored at any point.

This task should only be used in a running specification.

If used when transitioning from a running state or during a paused state then an error will appear in the specification report.

Properties

Property NameDescription
State NameThe name of the state the specification will be stored in (after the task has been run and a subsequent issue occurs or the specification is cancelled). If nothing is selected then the previous state will be used.
TitleChanges the Title (not the name) of the task.

Implementing Store Specification

This task should be implemented on a Macro Button (see How To Create In Form Navigation for more information) or a Form Event (see the section User Form Properties in the topic Form Design for more information).

The task will not run on the Leave Event of a state unless the specification is being cancelled.

Child Specifications

When the Store Specification task is required for a Child Specification that is not continuously synchronized (see Settings - About Synchronized Specifications) the Complete Child Specification task must be run before the Store Specification task.

Placing this task above the Store Specification task in the macro will accomplish this.
