Question conveyendtrigger on BasicConveyor

Hi All,

i was wondering whether the OnConveyEnd Trigger would work on a BasicConveyor as well. Of course it is not available in the Trigger Tab but the tree view shows an conveyendtrigger on the BasicConveyor very similar to the one found on the normal Conveyor. I tried and put some code on the BasicConveyor into trigger node but the code was not executed when the Flowitem reached the end of the BasicConveyor. In order to make sure that my code is not faulty I tried executed the code by calling it via nodefunction which was working. Therefore I assume that the Conveyendtrigger is not working on the BasicConveyor.
Could anyone confirm that?
I am trying to implement is a decision point indepented release of the Flowitem as soon as it reaches the end of the conveyor. And because I need a bidirectional conveyor I cannot user a normal conveyor.
Is there a way to release the Flowitem at the end of the basicconveyor without the use of decision points?

Thanks for all your help...
Stephan

No. Just use a decision point.

The BasicConveyor's GUI doesn't show the OnConveyEnd trigger because it doesn't fire the OnConveyEnd trigger.

The BasicConveyor's tree has the trigger variable node because the Conveyor is its superclass, but the BasicConveyor doesn't use that variable.
