Runs an instance of the action plan in the software factory from a WINDEV application or from a WEBDEV site. This allows you to automate the triggering of action plans. For example, an action plan for running tests can be started from a batch application.
// Runs the instance of action plan for compiling my project
InstanceID is int
InstanceID = ActionPlanExecute("FacCoord", "admin", "fackey", "PlanCompilMyProject")
<Result> = ActionPlanExecute(<Coordinator> , <User> , <Password> , <Instance of action plan> [, <WLanguage procedure>])
<Result>: Integer
  • Identifier of the action plan instance if it has been started,
  • 0 the instance of action plan was not started. The corresponding error message is returned by ErrorInfo.
<Coordinator>: Character string

If the library name is not specified, the first instance of the action plan found corresponding to the specified name will be run.
<WLanguage procedure>: Optional procedure name
Name of the WLanguage procedure called when the action plan is executed. This procedure is used to follow the execution of the action plan and to find out whether its execution was ended properly.
This procedure has the following format:
PROCEDURE ProcedureName(<Instance of action plan>, <Current step>,
<Progress>, <Status>)
  • <Instance of action plan> is a string corresponding to the name of the instance run.
  • <Current step> is a string corresponding to the caption of the current step.
  • <Progress> is an integer corresponding to the percentage of execution progress (between 0 and 100).
  • <Status> is an Integer constant indicating the execution status:
    apStatusCompletedFailureThe execution of the plane ended with error.
    apStatusCompletedOKThe execution of the plane ended without error.
    apStatusDisconnectedThe robot used to run the action plan does not respond anymore.
