OverviewThe STARTED Action is called after the START Action to indicate if a process has indeed started.
An Action may use a Value and an Address
Value: optionally the SyncID of the object that was started.
Address: not used
DetailsThe STARTED Action comes in handy for data sources that take a long time to start, or that may fail to start. The STARTED Action is called if the starting procedure has been finished successfully, otherwise STOPPED might be called.
The STARTING, STARTED and STOPPED Actions are automatically called from within a number of operators, although you may also use them in your project to indicate that a certain process has started or stopped.
Example: STARTING, STARTED and STOPPED_DemoDemonstrates what the action STARTING, STARTED and STOPPED can be used for. In this demo a spike is shown in a signal whenever one of these actions is 'heard'. You may also specify the SyncID of the object that is started, so that the spike is only shown when that object is started or stopped. Of course, normally you would not use this with a Signal Generator, because it starts immediately. But you may have a device which may fail to start, or which takes a long time to start. In that case you may use these actions to verify if a device is started.
