Triggers

Definition: The Triggers Palette contains the following Triggers that label method boxes in the Visual AgenTalk language behavior editors:
While Running
On
Tool
When Creating A New Agent
Mouse Click
Balloon Help

One of these triggers is at the head of every method and determines when the method will be called. For example, any agent's While Running method will be called at each time step while the agent is running its behavior program.

A behavior editor can contain any number of methods. A method is the combination of a trigger and a set of rules. A new behavior editor comes up with a single method containing the While Running trigger and one empty rule.
