Starting a Chart

Watch the video

A chart can be started in one of four ways:

  • From Scripting
    Using the system.sfc.startChart method of the scripting API, a chart can be started from anywhere. The chart must be in Callable execution mode.

  • From an Enclosing Step
    A chart can spawn an instance of another chart using an Enclosing Step.

  • Automatically
    A chart whose execution mode is RunAlways is automatically started when the Gateway starts up. If the chart stops, the Gateway does not re-execute it. If you want a chart that runs all the time, it should be designed to never stop, for example, by looping back upon itself continuously.

  • From the Designer
    While designing a chart, you can start instances of it from the Chart Control panel in the Designer using the Start link.
