14.3.30 SendSignalEvent




    MessageEvent (from Communications ) on page 463


   A SendSignalEvent models the sending of a signal.


   No additional attributes


   • signal : Signal [1] The signal associated with this event.


   No additional constraints


   A send signal event specifies the sending of a message to a receiver object. The send signal event may result in the occurrence of a signal event in the receiver object (see Common Behaviors on page 437), and may consequentially cause the execution of a behavior by the receiver object. The sending object will not block waiting for a reply, but will continue its execution immediately.
