Behavior Calls

A behavior call is the invocation of a behavior. You can represent an invocation with a CallOperation Action (Operation), CallBehavior Action (Activity) or Interaction Occurrence (Interaction) element. You model the properties of the behavior call using the 'Call' tab of the element 'Properties' dialog. You use behavior calls to:

  • Edit Arguments
  • Re-associate the call with a different behavior
  • Synchronize the arguments with the parameters in the associated behavior

Editing a Behavior Call

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

Click on the 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.
