4.1 Graphical Syntax

DCharts allows multiple syntaxes. A designer chooses his/her favorite syntax or combination of syntaxes. This section describes the graphical syntax of DCharts. Note that only part of this syntax is implemented in AToM$^3$. Initializer, finalizer, macros, transition priorities and submodel importation cannot be specified in AToM$^3$ at this time, and thus require the designers to manually write them with the textual syntax. However, they do have a graphical representation, which will be implemented in AToM$^3$ in the future.
