QScxml set state
I am connecting to scxml states with a QWidget, and would like to be able to provide a "manual mode" for the state machine when stopped by allowing the application to programmatically set the current state. Is this even possible? If so, how?
Do you mean something like submitting events by hand ?
No. we'd like to (for our own nefarious purposes) be able to set a new current state, even when there is no transition to that state from the current state.
In that case you should read the class implementation to see how its internal is working and how you might be able to influence that.
Yea, I've been doing a lot of reading class implementations, before I asked the question.
So are you saying it can be done? Which class implementation exactly? By what method?
What class did you read ?
I'm not confirming nor informing the feasibility of what you want to achieve since I don't know exactly what you want to achieve.
I was thinking about the QScxmlStateMachine class as a starting point.
It would probably be easier to answer which Scxml class I didn't read up on. So I've looked at QScxmlStateMachine many times. There's something in the Scxml spec about transitions with NULL ID's, but I've not been able to make it work.
I stated what I want to do in my original post; I'll state again, in a slightly different form, so you can confirm and/or inform on feasibility: I want to know how (or if it's even possible) to force the state machine to a given state without a transition/target.
I understand that you're probably no Scxml expert, so It's okay if you don't have the answers. But maybe you know someone who is an expert?
