Activity-Clear-Status method

Use this method to clear the activity status value, setting it to Good or another status determined by the operation of the parameter.

This method can be useful following an Obj-Open method or Obj-Open-by-Handle method in situations where failure is considered likely.


This method uses a single parameter.

Parameter Description
BackoutWorstOnlyStatus Select to clear the most severe status values (for example Error ) and retain a less severe status value (for example Warn or Good ).


If the parameter is not selected, the pyMethodStatus property is forced to the value Good. If the parameter is selected, the most severe status is dropped, and pxMethodStatus is set to the next most severe status ( Fail or Good ).

Checking the method status

This method may update the pxMethodStatus property. See How to test method results using a transition.
