How to Add custom WF4 Activities to ToolBox using Code?

Hi I have a number of custom activities in my dll. My requirement is to add the custom activities to ToolBox using Code/installer. I written the following code System.Reflection.Assembly asm; asm = Assembly.LoadFrom(Path.Combine(assemblyPath, @"MyProject.dll")); var types = from t in asm.GetExportedTypes() where typeof(Activity).IsAssignableFrom(t) select t.FullName; if (types != null && types.Count() > 0) { string activityName; foreach (var item in types) { activityName = item.Substring(item.LastIndexOf(".") + 1); myTab.ToolBoxItems.Add(activityName, item); } } Above code is adding the activities to the Toolbox as HTML Controls. How can I add the same as WF4 Activities in Toolbox ? Thanks AmbilyIT Analyst

DataGrid ValidationRule or IDataErrorInfo validation code called multiple times for each data change

Following my enquiry regarding a problem in Datagrid validation, for which managing exceptions is apparently a problem, I tested the two other methods: using validation rules, or implementing the IDataErrorInfo interface. I ran into other problems there, more insidious this time. This has been done on Windows7 (32-bit), .NET 4.0.30319. 1) IDataErrorInfo When this interface is implemented, the this[string columnName] property is called four times for each modification: two times before the cell enters edit mode (with the old value in the corresponding property) two times when the new value has to be validated (with the new value) It strikes me as not really efficient, is there something wrong with my code? Here's the C# part: using System; using System.Windows; using System.Collections.ObjectModel; using System.ComponentModel; namespace DataGridTest2 { public partial class MainWindow : Window { ObservableCollection<User> users; public MainWindow() { InitializeComponent(); users = new ObservableCollection<User>() { new User { Name = "Teddy", Age = "2" }, new User { Name = "Avi", Age = "19" } }; datagrid.ItemsSource = users; datagrid.Focus(); } } public class User : INotifyPropertyChanged, IDataErrorInfo { string name; public string Name

Sharepoint: In Calculated Column, Code with multiple "IF" condition does not work.

multiple services to same code destination

I've been using WCF for years and have been in the 90 of the 90-10 rule.  Now I need to start using WCF in ways that don't fit neatly.  I find it exciting, actually.  But it's a lot harder to find the information I need.  So I'm turning to this forum.  I have two fundamental questions: 1. In the config file under the "service" tag, is the "name" attribute like the "codebehind" value in an asp.net page?  i.e., does this always map to the code that is called? 2. Is it possible to specify two difference services with two different endpoints go to the same code location?  If so, how would that code be able to determine which service was called?  I know I could implement two different code destinations that call on the same reused code elsewhere but I may not have that option given the state of our legacy code.
