Hi, I am brand new to WF so forgive what might be a simple question.
I am creating multiple activities which will execute in a sequence and pass data down the chain. I know that one way to do this is to set a context variable in the parent Sequence from Activity A, and then read this value in Activity B (thus the output
of A is effectively the input of B).
I'm fine using this technique, but if there is a way to directly declare that the input of Activity B should be the output of Activity A, I'd prefer this. I'm intrigued by this comment in the new Activity template:
// If your activity returns a value, derive from CodeActivity<TResult>
// and return the value from the Execute method.
What is the point of returning a value from an Activity? Can this return value be read somehow by the next Activity in the sequence? I'd like to set the input of Activity B to the return value (output) of Activity A. How would I do this?
