This property provides a specification to evaluate at runtime to determine if the Control Flow, Exception Handler or Object Flow can be traversed.
By default, the Guard box is blank.
This property is set on the Guard tab of an Object Flow's Property Pages. On the Property Pages, the Editor button allows you to change the Guard property in a text window.
The Guard property supports Rich Text, so you can format the text and use model object references.
On an Activity Diagram you can show or hide the value of the Guard property through the view options of a Control Flow, Exception Handler or Object Flow.
