The <help> element is an abbreviation for <catch event="help">.
|count||(defaults to 1) The occurrence of the event. The count allows you to handle different occurrences of the same event differently. Each <form>, <menu>, and form item maintains a counter for each event that occurs while it is being visited; these counters are reset each time the <menu> or form item's <form> is re-entered. The form-level counters are used in the selection of an event handler for events thrown in a form-level <filled>. Counters are incremented against the full event name and every prefix matching event name; for example, occurrence of the event "event.foo.1" increments the counters associated with handlers for "event.foo.1" plus "event.foo" and "event".|
|cond||(defaults to true) An expression that must evaluate to true after conversion to Boolean in order for the event to be caught.|
<?xml version="1.0"?> <vxml version="2.0"> <form> <block> <throw event="help" message="help help help."/> </block> <!-- The "help" tag is shorthand for a "catch" tag that catches an --> <!-- event named "help". --> <help> <prompt> Caught my help event with the following message: <break time="1s"/> <value expr="_message"/> </prompt> </help> </form> </vxml>
