Description malkit 2007-03-14 03:17:02 UTC
There is no tooling support for adding repeat every element for the on Alarm 
for Event Handler. Even if you add it manually, it is not showing up on the 
bpel design view.
Comment 1 Mikhail Kondratyev 2007-03-22 10:40:48 UTC
Could you please clarify what you mean under the repeatEvery support

Currently user can set onAlarm to use repeatEvery in the onAlarm properties
window (standard NB properties window). Setting Alarm Type property to
repeatEvery and setting the Repeat Every property to some value will also
generate corresponding code in the source editor
Comment 2 Nikita Krjukov 2007-03-22 15:44:47 UTC
The repeat every value is shown in the property sheet panel. 
This element is treated as property of the onAlarm element. 
Comment 3 malkit 2007-03-22 19:57:31 UTC
All right, I did not look at the property sheet.

But could this be added using some context level visual mechanism. For 
example, the same way when you click a scope, little icons appear that allows  
you to add event handlers or falut handlers to it. Similarly, if user were to 
clilck the onAlarm, you can show one little icon that would allow use to add a 
repeat every element. The advantage with this approach is that it would be 
easy for user to use it rather than going through the property sheet.

But, even if the user were to configure it though by right clicking and going 
to properties, once configured there is no visual indication to this fact from 
the UI. That is, there should be some visual to indicate this fact that repeat 
every is defined for this onAlarm. 

Also, once defined through the above mechanism (through property sheet), how 
can user delete this repeat every. I could not find a way without going 
through the bpel code.

Renamed the subject to better tooling support for repeat Every for Event 
Handler on Alarm.
