using VS2008, WWF 3.5, state machine workflow
I am supporting a project written sometime ago by a team no longer here... it uses the WCSFContrib from CodePlex that has had no discussion activity in a year. At the heart this is a state machine workflow, so I suspect that anyone can point me in
the right direction.
I need to know the actual path taken by a user through the workflow so that I may transition to a previous activity. How can I do this?
I am creating a state machine workflow with 20 states.
My requirement is, irrespective of which state the workflow is in currently, when a user changes an item in the source list as "complete" , the workflow should be terminated.
What would be the best way to achieve this? Should I handle this item change event in all the 20 states? or is there a better way of achieving this?
1. Can anyone tell me when there is going to be an official release of StateMachine ActivityPack? on codeplex there is only a beta version published in aprtil.
2. Will this release have any API for querying current State?
How To get Custom List value in state machine workflow.i can get it for document library but not list.
This is my sample code
id = Convert.ToInt16(workflowProperties.Item.ID);
name = workflowProperties.Item["name"].ToString();
status = workflowProperties.Item["status"].ToString();
I got an error Value Can't be null ..any suggestion???
public sealed partial class Workflow1 : StateMachineWorkflowActivity
public SPWorkflowActivationProperties workflowProperties = new SPWorkflowActivationProperties();
I have state machine workflow with a state contain 2 event driven activities, one is waiting for an external event, and second one is delay. If the external event didn't happen within specified time, timeout occurs and send email. But if the external event delivered, it transited to next state.
Both situation works fine. But once the external event occurred and transited to next state, the delay activityÃÂ time out happens and it sends the mail. I don't want it happen, When i read through various blog, I learnt that once the workflow instance moved to next state, all event subscriptions related to the previous state are removed from the queue.... But it is not happening in my situation
Kindly help me to find where i am going and to resolve this issue..
p.s I set manualworkflow schedulerÃÂ - useActiv
