An Signal driven StateMachine utility with six transition phases:
- entering guard: Allows for testing of conditions to assess whether it is permissible to enter the target state. If not, the transition can be cancelled.
- exiting guard: The first state-specific phase, it allows for testing of conditions to assess whether it is permissible to leave the current state. If not, the transition can be cancelled.
- cancelled: Occurs if the transition is cancelled in either the entering guard or the exiting guard.
- teardown: Occurs after the state has changed, but before the entered phase of the target state
- entered: the final state-specific phase indicates that the transition to the new state has been successful.
- changed: this post-transition phase sends a general notification that the state has changed.
