Title: State with no action should show a warning
Post by: jeanfabre on April 18, 2011, 12:29:20 AM
Hi,

 I think a warning should be raised when a State has no action.

 I tend to build the state events, and wire everything before actually build the actions ( very handy and gratifying, makes you want to do the work :) ). This allows me to quickly laydown my idea. but then I find hard to come back and make sure all of my States actually do something...

Some sort of warning or a visual clue that it is empty. ACTUALLY :) maybe you could show the number of actions as a small label in a corner of each state, and show is read when it's 0 :) that would be cool and help us as well assessing and getting clues about each State some more.

 Bye,

 Jean

I find myself using empty "Idle" states quite often. But it should be easy enough to add a warning as a user preference...

Hi Alex,

 Would be great yes, and preferences: way to go obviously. Also in the prefs you could expose a "standard" vs "expert" set of preference so that you don't scare new users.

 Bye,
