Ignore any unsolicited message [message #1735748] Wed, 22 June 2016 12:01 Go to next message

I want to wait for a message from either port1 or port2 and if any message comes in any other port, it should be handled separately (in some altstep) and the function should wait for receiving the message from port1 or port2.

I have code similar to the following:
function receive_messages() {
    activate(default_altstep);  //handles all messages except from port1 or port2
    alt {
        port1.receive {}
        port2.receive {}

But in this code, if message other then what is expected in the alt is received the alt exits and the control goes to the default_altstep and then the function terminates.

I can't understand the problem with this code or any other approach.
Please help.

Hi Murli,

to achieve this, you need to restart the evaluation of alt by for example inserting it into a loop, as below:

function receive_messages() {
var boolean  v_loop:=true;   

activate(default_altstep);  //handles all messages except from port1 or port2

while (v_loop)
    alt {
        []port1.receive { 

        []port2.receive {




while will be executed until you receive something on port 1 or 2; this will also break the loop by setting v_loop to false.

I hope this helps

Best regards
