|Accessing this behavior
||This behavior can be accessed by clicking the
Loop Behavior icon () in the
||This behavior is designed to enable you to
define sequences of behaviors that will be executed a given number of times
(For i=1 to N).
- The number of iterations can be driven by rules and formulas.
Therefore, the loop will operate its sub-behaviors a given number of
times, depending on the context, if some conditions are met.
- The objects generated by the behaviors at each iteration can be
stored in the output list of the loop with the AddToList behavior. It is
a way for the expert user to store and retrieve the results of the
- Loops of loops cannot be created: A loop behavior cannot be
instantiated under an existing loop. Other limitations: The behaviors
contained in the loop cannot be structured using the Logical and
- The behaviors located below the loop cannot be in auto update mode.
Only Driven and Single update modes are available in their properties
- Loops inputs can be linked except the iteration.
- It is recommended to use the Loop behavior in combination with the
AddToList behavior: The outputs of the loop will be stored in the
AddToList and the list will be valuated.
- The NumberOfIterations variable matches the number of iterations you
- The AlwaysRegenerate variable means that if the loop already executed
once, the items that it created will be removed and recreated at the next
- The list variable can be the output of the behavior.
- The Iteration is an internal parameter that will be incremented at
each iteration during the execution of the loop. It cannot be driven by
the expert but can be used as the input of a formula, check, link... It
is the current iteration number.
