The Interactive Lifecycle Model

The Interactive Lifecycle Model has a diagram showing transition stages. You can scroll this diagram horizontally if it is wider than the window. It shows the transition stages, in the path in which they are followed. They are connected by arrows that indicate the valid transitions.

You can select a stage by clicking it or by choosing it in the Stage filter. The arrows representing the possible transitions into that stage become highlighted in light blue, and the transitions out of it become highlighted in dark blue. When a stage is selected, the Transitions area only shows the possible transitions to and from that stage, whereas when no stage is selected all the transitions for the lifecycle are shown.

You can create a new transition by clicking in one stage and dragging the mouse pointer into another stage. This displays New Transition dialog box.
