I want to be able to change the workflow state referenced by a milestone via scripting. The WikiHelp seems to suggest this is possible but I have not been able to get it to work. My script is as follows;
The Wikihelp states the following;

Thanks for the reply.
I just want tp be crystal clear about this incase I've misunderstood something;
A milestone has the following properties;
1 Workflow State
2 Milestone event
3 Target Date
5 Warning Days before
6 Workflow progress
So if I understand you correctly the following statements are correct??
a> Properties 1 to 6 can be set on creation via a script.
b> Properties 2 to 6 can be edited via a script. Property 1 cannot.
c> A milestone cannot be deleted via scripting.
Workflow states dictate milestones, not the other way around. You can have a workflow state create or adjust a milestone, or look at a milestone for a condition of validation, but you cannot have a milestone adjust a workflow state.
Also yes you can adjust a milestone date via scripting after the milestone is created, if you know the name of the milestone your trying to affect.
Thanks for the reply. So if I understand you correctly it is not possible to change the workflow state asscoiated to an existing milestone via scripting?
There isn’t a way for a script to start based on when a milestone changes. Scripts only work on workflow changes or item creation / change.
I think we have our wires crossed. The script is executed by a workspace behaviour (edit). All I want to do is change the workflow state referenced by the milestone at that point.
Does that clear things up?
If you are trying to change the workflow step based on a milestone. Then you are looking at an ‘if’ or 'case' statement and using:
I have tried to illustrate what I am trying to do on the attached document. Please let me know if this sheds any light.
Based on what your showing all you can do at that point is set the “Closed” milestone to completed at 100% and create a new milestone for “Cancel”.
You cannot change one milestone for another or delete and replace the milestone by scripting.
