Remarks

The <StartBoundary> element is a required element for time and calendar triggers (<TimeTrigger> and <CalendarTrigger>).

For scripting development, the end boundary is specified using the Trigger.StartBoundary property that is inherited by the all trigger objects.

For C++ development, the end boundary is specified using the ITrigger::StartBoundary property that is inherited by the all trigger interfaces.
