Behavior Editor: Triggers Tab

Use the Triggers tab of the Behavior Editor dialog box to select which triggers will cause an object to enter the active or triggered mode. When an object becomes active, it will perform the "When Active" operations (defined on the Actions tab) until a Reset occurs. At that time, the object will return to its inactive state.

Use the Triggers tab of the Behavior Editor to define what events will cause the object to enter the active mode.
