This example shows how to design a workflow step that lets the user choose whether or not to skip that step. Use the CALLBACK_SKIP_STEP property of ENVIWorkflowStep to do this. Make sure the next step (after the skipped step) gets the data it needs.

Copy and paste this code into the IDL Editor. Save the file as Then compile and run the program.

; This is the routine to invoke using the skip step callback.
; It accepts the workflow as an argument.

; Store the input to this step as the task output so the current wiring
; will pass the data to the next task.
workflow.current_step.task.output_raster = workflow.current_step.task.input_raster
; This is the workflow routine.

step1.TASK = ENVITask('IsodataClassification')
step1.TITLE = 'Classify'
