Get Activity Arguments programmatically

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 22, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Windows Application


I am wanting to execute any workflow dynamically. However when setting up the workflow schedule I need to be able to work out if there

are any arguments which the workflow activity is expecting. How via code and not within the designer can I work out what arguments the

activity is expecting?

The values provided for the root activity's arguments did not satisfy the root activity's requirem

I have flowchart as implementation  of activitybuilder and added two dynamicactivityproperty to it. The flowchart is having flowdecision and 3 other customized activities with same defined arguments. But when i invoke the workflow and pass dictionary, it gives the error: The values provided for the root activity's arguments did not satisfy the root activity's requirements: 'Sample Workflow': The following keys from the input dictionary do not map to arguments and must be removed: FolderName, FolderSize.  Please note that argument names are case sensitive. Parameter name: rootArgumentValues Flowchart       fc = new Flowchart();  protected override void OnInitialized(EventArgs e) { wd.Load(new ActivityBuilder { Implementation =  fc});             ModelTreeManager mtm = wd.Context.Services.GetService<ModelTreeManager>();             ModelItem ab = mtm.Root;             ModelItemCollection argsAndProperties = ab.Properties["Properties"].Collection;                     InArgument<string> foldername = new InArgument<string>();    &n

Dynamically adding design time arguments to a custom native activity.


In my senario, the activity has a string[] which has an associated DialogPropertyValueEditor.  When entries are added or removed from this array, CacheMetadata() is called on the activity.  What I want to do from here is add or remove arguments for the activity based on the contents of this string[].  These arguments should then be controllable from the designer (ie, associate variables, or vb expressions) in either a rehosted, or native VisualStudio environment.  I'm having some trouble figuring this out.  With WF3 I used the WorkflowParameterBindingCollection.  Anyone tackled this already, or got an idea how it might be accomplished?

Export SharePoint List to Excel Spreadsheet Programmatically using C#

In SharePoint applications, Custom Lists are used to store business data and Document Libraries to store the documents. But for data manupulation and analysis, Microsoft Excel provides very rich features as compared to SharePoint Lists. That's why people still loves to work on Microsoft Excel Sheets.

using the linqDataSource control programmatically (dynamically)



my scenario is this: I want to use the linqDataSource control to bind data to a gridview for it's efficient built-in paging and sorting features *but* I don't want the data to be bound until the user has input various search parameters, so I need to bind the data from a button click event. Also, the search options will be somewhat complex in that there will be several optional search parameters, via various dropdowns and textboxes, so I can't just declaratively/statically setup all the WHERE parameters on the linqDataSource (at least I'm assuming I can't, or that it may result in poor performance if I do and just assign default values like the everything wildcard '%' for the cases the user doesn't use a particular search parameter). Given that brief description, here is an example of what I'm doing, but with only one WHERE parameter for simplicity, the real code will be adding anywhere from 1 to about 12 WHERE parameters depending on how the user sets the search options in the GUI.

Advanced Basics: Set Word Document Properties Programmatically


At the beginning of another lovely day of writing courseware in mad pursuit of unrealistic deadlines, I received a frantic call from a business partner. He was at the end of a long consulting project and had several hundred Microsoft® Word documents, all of which required their document properties to be set identically, except the Title property of the document, which was to be based on the document file name, minus the .

Win32 Resources: Using C++ to Programmatically Retrieve a Global Cursor's Shape and ID


Getting global cursor information is useful when developing software that drives or gathers information about other UI-based applications, including information about a remote machine. This article describes a way to programmatically identify the current cursor's ID and bitmap at any point in time. The first technique described is based on polling for information and shows how to get the handle of the current global cursor. This handle will then allow you to get information about the cursor. You can also monitor WinEvents for changes to the global cursor.

A Simple XML-driven Tool: Monitor Your Web Site's Activity with COM and Active Scripting


This article describes a simple Web site monitoring tool built with XML, JScript, Windows Script Host, and COM objects. Although it is not intended to replace complete Web site monitoring software products, it has many useful features that help to keep Web servers up and running. An XML configuration file specifies which Web sites to monitor and the actions to be taken if the site isn't functioning properly. In addition, the tool can be scheduled to run at any specified interval using the Windows Task Scheduler. Functions that probe the sites, log events, and send e-mail notifications are written in JScript.

More Versioning Fun With Optional Arguments

In my last blog post , I covered some challenges with versioning methods that differ only by optional parameters. If you haven't read it, go read it. If I do say so myself, it's kind of interesting. ;) In this post, I want to cover another very subtle versioning issue with using optional parameters. At the very end of that last post, I made the following comment. By the way, you can add overloads that have additional required parameters. So in this way, you are in the same boat as before. However, this can lead to subtle bugs. Let's walk through a scenario. Imagine that some class library has the following method in version 1.0. public static void Foo( string s1, string s2, string s3 = "v1" ) { Console.WriteLine( "version 1"...(read more)

Versioning Issues With Optional Arguments

One nice new feature introduced in C# 4 is support for named and optional arguments . While these two features are often discussed together, they really are orthogonal concepts. Let's look at a quick example of these two concepts at work. Suppose we have a class with one method having the following signature. // v1 public static void Redirect( string url, string protocol = "http" ); This hypothetical library contains a single method that takes in two parameters, a required string url and an optional string protocol . The following shows the six possible ways this method can be called. HttpHelpers.Redirect( "http://haacked.com/" ); HttpHelpers.Redirect(url: "http://haacked.com/" ); HttpHelpers.Redirect( "http...(read more)

How to Post Code To Your Blog and other Religious Arguments

If you've got a programming blog, chances are you'll want to post some code snippets. Posting code sounds easy but it's surprisingly tricky if you consider all the ways that people will be reading your blog. There's a number of ways. Here's a few and their pros and cons . Copy Paste from your IDE (like Visual Studio, for example) If I copy paste directly from VS into my editor of choice, Windows Live Writer, I'll get a <pre> section. using System; namespace WindowsGame1 { #if WINDOWS || XBOX     static class Program     {         /// <summary>         /// The main entry point for the application.        ...(read more)

Programmatically Simulating the ListView's ItemCommand Event


I have a User Control that contains a ListView.  In the user control's code is this event handler:

    protected void listView1_ItemCommand(object source, ListViewCommandEventArgs e)
      Button_ClickHandler(source, e);

What's occurring is that I'm explicitly firing an event so that the parent web page can monitor this and take appropriate actions.  Thus when the user clicks on a different ListViewItem it triggers the population of associated data elsewhere on the web page.

This all works fine except for one thing: When I first load the control I'm pre-setting the first ListViewItem.  Unfortunately, just setting the ListView's SelectedIndex = 0 doesn't fire the aforementioned event handler.

So I started investigating how to call "listView1_ItemCommand" but couldn't figure out how to instantiate the "e" parameter.

Any ideas of how to resolve this?


Creating Reorderlist Programmatically


I hope to get some guidance on how to create reorder lists programmatically because of the situation described below. Thank you.

I have a page where I want to have a toDo Iist for each of several (typically 10) milestone categories. I can think of 3 options.

I don't know in advance how many 'active' categories there will be but I there is a known fixed total of about 20  categories, of which from 1 to 20 may be 'active'

1. Have one Master ReOrderList And Then Nest the Category ReorderLists Inside 

2. Create the reorderlists programmatically.

3. Brute force approach. Hardcode all 20 reorderlists and their associated sqldatasources, and then set visibility

depending on which category is active. This approach is the simplest but has the disadvantage of too much

repetitive code and the reorder lists would be in a fixed order, when I really want them to match the category order.




Trying to set update panel trigger programmatically


 I have a recursive sub that finds a dropdown list and sets up an AsyncPostbackTrigger for an update panel. I have tried calling this sub both from page_init and page_load 

If the dropdownlist is within the update panel, eveything works fine. If the dropdown list is not in the updatepanel I get error

A control with ID 'ddlPersonFilter' could not be found for the trigger in UpdatePanel 'up1'. In both cases the sub does find the dropdown list and executes the code to set up the trigger. Thanks for your help.

    Private Sub SetUpdatePanelTrigger(ByVal oControl As Control)
        For Each ctrl As Control In oControl.Controls
            If TypeOf ctrl Is DropDownList Then
                If CType(ctrl, DropDownList).ID = "ddlPersonFilter" Then
                    Dim thisddl As New DropDownList
                    Dim thistrigger As New AsyncPostBackTrigger
                    thisddl = ctrl
                    thistrigger.EventName = "SelectedIndexChanged"
                    thistrigger.ControlID = thisddl.ID
                    Exit Sub
                End If
                If ctrl.HasControls Then
                End If
            End If
