David,
 There is no formal effort to make scxml support visual information.
There may be individuals working on it, but not as part of the W3C
working group.  Compliant SCXML implementations will ignore your
graphical extensions if the 'exmode' attribute on <scxml> is set to
'lax' (that's the default.)  If 'exmode' is set to 'strict' parsers will
reject documents containing markup that they don't understand/support.

Subject: SCXML question

I am brand new to this list so please excuse me if I am asking a
well-worn
question.

I am writing a graphical state chart editor plugin for QtCreator to
generate scxml(and then hopefully build a state machine visual debugger
connecting to Qt QStateMachine's).

I am merging visual chart state & transition graphics
position/size/paths
etc into the scxml by merging SVG semantics so that the human readable
graphical chart info is preserved.

For example, a transition would have a path associated with it:

      <transition target="Test1">
      <path d="m 100 100  300 100  200 300 "
               fill="red" stroke="blue" stroke-width="3" />
      </transition>


Is anyone working on a version of scxml to support visual chart
information?

I assume that strictly compliant scxml parsers would ignore my
additions.
Is this a reasonable assumption?


thank you in advance for feedback.

David
