Highlighting statechart activities

Statechart states and transitions may be involved in the steps executed by the simulation engine. Such shapes are highlighted at the model runtime to help you to locate the current activity within the model.

The highlight colors and their meanings are given in the table below.

Item Color Status

If this state lies inside another state(s), all of them are highlighted - either composite state(s) or inner simple state.
Transition Red This transition was last occurred event originator.
Blue This transition is scheduled to occur in the future. The remaining time is displayed under the transition name (you control its visibility with the transition's Show name property).
