Class UML 2.4.1::SendSignalAction

Description:

A send signal action is an action that creates a signal instance from its inputs, and transmits it to the target object, where it may cause the firing of a state machine transition or the execution of an activity. The argument values are available to the execution of associated behaviors. The requestor continues execution immediately. Any reply message is ignored and is not transmitted to the requestor. If the input is already a signal instance, use a send object action.

Properties:

signal : Signal (1 1); -- source SendSignalAction
target : InputPin (1 1); -- source SendSignalAction
argument : InputPin (0 *); -- source InvocationAction
onPort : Port (0 1); -- source InvocationAction
context : Classifier (0 1); -- source Action

The classifier that owns the behavior of which this action is a part.
{readonly, derived}
The spec does not provide a function to compute this derived property!

input : InputPin (0 *); -- source Action
isLocallyReentrant : Boolean (1 1); -- source Action
localPostcondition : Constraint (0 *); -- source Action
localPrecondition : Constraint (0 *); -- source Action
output : OutputPin (0 *); -- source Action
handler : ExceptionHandler (0 *); -- source ExecutableNode
activity : Activity (0 1); -- source ActivityNode
inGroup : ActivityGroup (0 *); -- source ActivityNode
inInterruptibleRegion : InterruptibleActivityRegion (0 *); -- source ActivityNode
inPartition : ActivityPartition (0 *); -- source ActivityNode
inStructuredNode : StructuredActivityNode (0 1); -- source ActivityNode
incoming : ActivityEdge (0 *); -- source ActivityNode
outgoing : ActivityEdge (0 *); -- source ActivityNode
redefinedNode : ActivityNode (0 *); -- source ActivityNode
isLeaf : Boolean (1 1); -- source RedefinableElement

Indicates whether it is possible to further redefine a RedefinableElement. If the value is true, then it is not possible to further redefine the RedefinableElement. Note that this property is preserved through package merge operations; that is, the capability to redefine a RedefinableElement (i.e., isLeaf=false) must be preserved in the resulting RedefinableElement of a package merge operation where a RedefinableElement with isLeaf=false is merged with a matching RedefinableElement with isLeaf=true: the resulting RedefinableElement will have isLeaf=false. Default value is false.
Default value: FALSE

redefinedElement : RedefinableElement (0 *); -- source RedefinableElement
redefinitionContext : Classifier (0 *); -- source RedefinableElement
clientDependency : Dependency (0 *); -- source NamedElement
name : String (0 1); -- source NamedElement
nameExpression : StringExpression (0 1); -- source NamedElement
namespace : Namespace (0 1); -- source NamedElement
qualifiedName : String (0 1); -- source NamedElement
visibility : VisibilityKind (0 1); -- source NamedElement

Determines where the NamedElement appears within different Namespaces within the overall model, and its accessibility.

ownedComment : Comment (0 *); -- source Element
ownedElement : Element (0 *); -- source Element
owner : Element (0 1); -- source Element

Constraints:

Signature: type_ordering_multiplicity() : Boolean;
Description: The type, ordering, and multiplicity of an argument pin must be the same as the corresponding attribute of the signal.
Expression: true

Signature: number_order() : Boolean;
Description: The number and order of argument pins must be the same as the number and order of attributes in the signal.
Expression: true

Operations:

No additional operations.
