A trigger can be explicitly marked as illegal. In that case, illegal must be the only imperative statement for that trigger.

on      ::= "on" illegal-triggers ":" illegal
        ::= illegal-trigger ("," illegal-trigger)*
        ::= port-name "." event-name
illegal ::= "illegal" ";"

Note that in this case the trigger’s formal parameter list may be omitted.

For example:

on p.hello,r,world: illegal;

Note: A trigger with an illegal response can also be omitted since an illegal response is the default behavior for every trigger.

In a component an illegal can be used as an imperative statement in the branch of an if as any other imperative statement (See Component if).
