  Subject: Boost MSM: No transition from submachine to externalstate

  Using the following example as a template:
  I am trying to create a state machine that consists of an alarm state and a composite state (submachine). When an alarm event is posted while in the composite state, the state machine is supposed to transition to the Alarm state; however, the machine complains that no transition from the composite state on the alarm event exists. This is similar to the example where the player is in playing and a stop event is received.

  Below is a dumbed-down version of my state machine:


Hi again,

ah I remember now. I changed the example last june because of a problem with exit points.
If you write:

typedef boost::msm::back::state_machine<Normal_T> Normal_THelper;
struct Normal_TImpl : public Normal_THelper,
                          public msm::front::euml::euml_state<Normal_TImpl >

Then it will work in your case but likely fail if faced with exit points. If you have none, you can use this trick temporarily while I have a look at this.
Otherwise you'll need to use the example I just posted, eUML is still in development and an experimental front-end.
