in .Net 4.0 there is a new "Task" class. Currently I'm using BackgroundWorkers for my background tasks. Should I use the new "Task" class instead? What are the benefits/drawbacks with the Task class?
Thanks for your help.

In Visual C++ 10 and the Microsoft .NET Framework 4, Microsoft is introducing new libraries and runtimes to significantly ease the process of expressing parallelism in your code base, together with new tool support for performance analysis and debugging of parallel applications. In this article, you will learn about debugging support in Visual Studio 2010, much of which is focused on task-based programming models.

Dino Esposito rewrites his task progress bar with the help of ASP.NET "Atlas."

The progress bar is great for keeping users informed about the progress of a task. Unfortunately, there's no progress bar element built into ASP.NET, so Dino Esposito solves that problem with his ProgressPanel control.

SQL Server can be administered programmatically using system stored procedures, but Distributed Management Objects (DMO) offer a more modern, object-oriented alternative. This article introduces SQL-DMO in SQL Server 7.0 and SQL Server 2000 and describes the SQL-DMO object model, then focuses primarily on the Databases tree and the JobServer tree of the object model. The sample code and the article show how to use various objects such as the Registry object, the Configuration object, and the Database object to automate common administration tasks such as programmatically retrieving configuration settings, creating new databases, applying T-SQL scripts, and creating and scheduling backups.

I am running WSS 3.0 with other workflows which are functioning correctly.
I created a new workflow in Visual Studio 2008 and was able to successfully run it in my dev environment.
I attached the workflow to a task list in my dev environment and was able to manually start the workflow by using the drop down workflow option and using the menus to manually start it.
I installed this workflow in our production environment and attached it to the task list (which had a SPD workflow attached to it which stopped working about a month ago).
I made sure that the option to manually start the workflow was checked.
When I tried to manually start the workflow, (hover mouse over title, drop down) there isn’t a workflow option.
The workflow also will not start automatically when a task is changed.
I attached this same workflow to a different task list in production and get the option to start it.
I have tried creating a small workflow in SPD 2007 and attaching it to the task list.
It shows that it is attached, when I look at the workflows that are attached to the task list, but I still don’t get the option to manually start it.
I have checked my security and I have fu
I have a work flow running on a list, when a task is Rejected at a stage then the Workflow status is set to "Completed". Instead of this I want the Status to remain as "In Progress", so that in future after the modification of the document the Approver may
Approve it and then take it to the next stages. This is not possible if the Workflow is set to "Completed".
Can you please suggest an easy way to do this
Thanks in Advance
There are actually two separate (I think) problems here. The scenario: I used the SharePoint Designer 2007 to create a workflow attached to a form library. When a form is
submitted to the library, a To-Do-Item is created on a task list. The To-Do-Item is initially assigned to a GROUP. A user from the group then selects the name of an individual from a choice list in edit item. This person now becomes the
Assigned To for the task.
What is needed is 1) To update the Assigned To column of the Form library when someone in the GROUP assigns the task to an INDIVIDUAL; and 2) To have the Due Date from the submitted
InfoPath form propagate to the task list.
I've tried having one workflow try to do everything and also having a secondary workflow set up on the task list to do the task assignment update but have not been successful
in solving either issue. I don’t think that I am really understanding how to Define Workflow Lookup when not working with the Current Item. I know what fields I want but I don’
1. What is the name of the field thats connect between the task item and the list name or guid and the list item id or guid
2. SPD: how can when starting the workflow how can i ensure that the initial form variables will be saved at the workflow task list
I have a Workflow that is using an InfoPath task form. In the "FormEvents_Loading" method event handler I have some code that needs to run each time the form is opened. I recycle the App Pool and open the form the code runs perfectly, but
if I close and try to re-open the form the code is not run at all. I can then recycle the App Pool again and on the next load the code executes just fine. The code that is supposed to be run is a very simple statement to set a field value,
so I don't think it is interfering.
Does anyone know what this might be?
