SimMission.Latched tests for the latched state of another trigger.

Latched is the state of a trigger once fired.


SimMission.Latched should not be used for time-critical dependencies.

As with all Property Triggers, there may be some time-delay before the condition is tested & fed back.

I've observed delays > 10 seconds after the initiating event occured.


Not all triggers can be monitored for latched. Triggers set to Oneshot = False, will report as unlatched.

Example

Using SimMission.Latched to monitor the state of a timer trigger.

Overview

A timer activates the first dialog.

A second timer activates the property trigger which checks for the first timer's SimMission.Latched state.

If fired, a second dialog is activated.
