Do something after something else is done

Abstract

How to execute nodes in sequence

This is often quite easy, too, because of Vuo’s rules for event flow. If you want one node to execute before another, you can just draw a cable from the first node to the second node. In the composition below, for each event from Fire Periodically, the two Count nodes always finish executing before the Add node begins executing.

Sometimes you might need to enforce a do something after something else is done rule that’s more complicated than putting nodes in a sequence, as above. For example, you might want a composition to do something only after the user has typed a certain word. The next section explains how to check for conditions like that and do something when they’re fulfilled.
