[State Diagram] History pseudo-states

asked Sep 17 in Wanted features by edobez (190 points)

Is it already possible to draw pseudo-states like Deep and Shallow history on State Diagrams?

This would be a nice feature to get closer to the UML specification.

I later found that this is strictly related to question http://forum.plantuml.net/1665/history-pseudostate. It hasn't been answered though.

You can use [H], but this state is not accessible from the outside of a state.

state example {

[H] --> Some


Other --> [H] 'Would be another state'

Thank you, this is something but it doesn't solve my problem since as you said you can't target the History pseudo-state from outside. This is a common state pattern named "Transition to History".
