Workflow: ezcWorkflowNodeStart

[ Tutorial ] [ Theoretical background ] [ Class tree ] [ Element index ] [ ChangeLog ] [ Credits ]

Class: ezcWorkflowNodeStart

An object of the ezcWorkflowNodeStart class represents the one and only tart node of a workflow. The execution of the workflow starts here. [source]
Creating an object of the ezcWorkflow class automatically creates the start node for the new workflow. It can be accessed through the $startNode property of the workflow.
Incoming nodes: 0 Outgoing nodes: 1
Example:
1.  <?php
2.  $workflow new ezcWorkflow'Test' );
3.  $workflow->startNode->addOutNode....some other node here .. );
4.  ?>
