Activity-Set-Status method


Use the Activity-Set-Status method to convey the outcome of an activity's execution. This method sets the value of pxMethodStatusafter the activity has finished executing.

NOTE:The pxMethodStatus property value is volatile. Many other methods also set this property value. If such a method executes in a step after the Activity-Set-Status method, the value set in this method may be overwritten and lost.


This method has two required parameters.



Severity Select a return status: Good, Info, Warn, or Fail.
Message Enter a text message to be associated with this status (as a literal constant), or the key of a Rule-Message rule containing a text message to be associated with this status.


The pxMethodStatus property is set to the value specified in the Severity parameter. The message is added to the page.
