Siebel Advisor API Reference > Data Access Functions for Siebel Advisor >
Use the GetInputState function to return an input state object.
This object contains the current input state (the set of Feature table selections). This roughly corresponds to the current set of interface UI control selections. Note that in some instances, there are more Feature tables in the input state than there are UI controls in the interface.
In most instances where you would consider calling this function, the input state is accessible through another mechanism. For example, access to the input state is sometimes useful at COP_BeforeConfiguration. However, the input state is explicitly presented by an argument.
You should call this function while a product is actively being configured. Do not call this function when no product has been selected (for example, right after the application starts).
