Order of Conditions, Validators, and Post Functions execution during Transitions

What order are the Conditions, Validators, and Post Functions executed during Transitions?

What happens to this order when a Transition Screen is used between Statuses?  Is it the same order?  Are the conditions and validators executed after the transition screen is dismissed?  

By its name, I'm guessing the Post Functions are executed last.  Is that a good guess?

It's before, during, during, during, but as the last part.

Conditions run before the transition.  They're a simple yes/no check, and if the answer is "no", then the user can't even start the transition.

Screens happen next, as the transition is started, a box goes to the user to offer them the chance to enter data.

Validators are the next step, they check that data on the issue (including what may have just changed on the transition screen) is good to go

And, yes, very last, the post-functions happen, after everything has passed validation

Nic thank you (once again) for your response.  Very much appreciated.
