Operations Dialog - Constraints

Operations can have pre- and post- conditions defined. For each type, give the condition a name, a type and enter notes.

Constraints define the contractual behavior of an operation, what must be true before they are called and what is true after. In this respect they are related to the state model of a Class and can also relate to the guard conditions that apply to a transition.
