How to create back-to-back EventFrames?

One of my favourite topics, and least favourite headaches. I need to create EventFrames back-to-back. Meaning, the endtime of the previous event = the starttime of the current event. This is quite a common scenario: e.g. changes in batches, phases, etc.

 

For clock-scheduled analysis, we can use identical start- and end-triggers and the 'trick' to delay the start trigger with some seconds. That was outlined here: Re: Run Event Frame for only 24 hours

 

However for event-triggered EventFrames this does not work. If i use HasValueChanged() without a starttigger delay, i get zero-duration eventframes. If i use a delay, the HasValueChanged() does not pickup the change and i get nothing in preview or results. Event Tagval()<> PrevVal() does not work. Somehow i feel that if i would reverse the order of evaluating start and endtriggers, it should work (opposite behaviour of the zero-duration EF), but that's a side-discussion.

 

So anybody any ideas?

 

Currently working on an approach using 2 Analysis in tandem, but have not got that working 100% yet.
