FEEDINBOX

This function feeds the Inbox of a Streamsheet within the same machine. The Streamsheet Settings must be set to “On Data Arrival”, to trigger the calculation. This way a dependent Streamsheet can be triggered in two different ways. Either using the FEEDINBOX() function, which leads to an “asynchronous” call, since the message is just added to the inbox and waits for the next machine step. Or using EXECUTE(), which will lead to a direct execution (synchronous).

Arguments

Name Description
