ECO: How to add State Machines

I was really blown away, seeing all the new Together stuff in BDS 2006 from an ECO perspective. Firstly, all the new things you can add, which are mostly because of the addition of State Machines.

Adding a State Machine is really simple. Right-click a class and choose "Add / ECO State Machine".

Do not right click the model surface as a State Machine determines the state of an attribute inside of a class.

Notice that if you add a State Machine, you will also end up with a State Attribute in your class automatically, which is automatically linked to that very State Machine, which you added before:

It is being named "State_x" by default and can be renamed, of course. I plan to post a basic "demo" of State Machines shortly.

Let me know if you're interested!


  • Yes, I am interested. Just saw the Delphi Roadshow last night at our users group meeting.


    The ECO stuff is really cool, and the new state machines are a great edition.
