Some state transitions require the task to move through one or more states to reach the specified state. For example, if the task is in the Unverified state, and you call the Control Task function/VI, setting Action to Reserve, the task is verified and reserved. The task transitions from the Unverified state to the Verified state and to the Reserved state. In most applications, it is not helpful to explicitly transition the task to each state. Instead, invoke only those transitions that are necessary, and the task implicitly handles the rest.
