Troubleshooting with States

Issues arise with States when nesting is involved, which is typically necessary with Line Code elements.

1. Right click any State and select Insert State. In the State Editor, choose Line_30 from the drop-down menu and set the Tag to Remarks.

2. Right click the Line_30 State and select Add State.

NOTE: To see how the Total_1 Line and the other Total Lines, to be used as an EndState for the DetailsLine and DetailsStart States, are created, review steps 1 through 8 from the section entitled, “Adding Lines & Parameters in the Text to XML Editor.”
