Behavior Calls

A behavior call is the invocation of a behavior. You can represent an invocation with a Call Operation Action (Operation), Call Behavior Action (Activity) or Interaction Occurrence (Interaction) element. You model the properties of the behavior call using the Call tab of the element Properties dialog, on which you:


Click on the Edit button to create and delete arguments, and relate them to a corresponding parameter in the associated behavior.

Click on the [ ... ] (Select Behavior) button to re-associate the invocation with a different behavior or to remove any association with the current behavior.

The Interaction Occurrence panel is displayed only for Interaction Occurrence elements. It enables you to enter the return value and attribute of the behavior call.
