We'll show you basic operations that you can do with State Transition Table using sample Statemachine diagram.
Let's open the State Transition Table. If the State Transition Table Plug-in is installed correctly, [State Transition Table] tab should appear in the bottom pane just below the Diagram Editor.
Update the table by clicking [Update] button.
This table tells the transitions of states via each event. Let's see if there are any omissions from this table. You can see that the final state does not exist in the model. So let's add it in the statemachine diagram and define the "Turn off" event for the transition from Idle to final state.
Now let's switch the State Transition Table view to (State-Event) from the combo box.
Let's make the specification more clear by defining that nothing does happen when "Call Receiving" event happens while "Connected". Select the cell with "Connected" and "Call Receiving" and then select "ignore" from its combo box.
You can export the table to Excel and use it on your hand.
Click "Export to Excel" and then specify where you want it to be exported.
Two different views (Both State-State and State-Event) are exported into one excel file.
Exporting to Excel file would be very effective when the Statemachine complex and has much information in.
