How to disable delete command for certain activities inside the composite activity

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 30, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Windows Application


I had build up a composite activity, this composite activity basically contains a few activities, some of the activities are not allowed to delete. Is there a way to disable the delete command using WF APIs, instead of hooking up the keydown and context menu event for those activities?

Based on the following web-link, I have implemented my code and it is working good for DELETE.


To disable DELETE . ..  now the user is NOT able to Delete activity using DELETE key using keyboard or using right-click context menu.

To disable CUT ....... In the same way I implement it for CUT, it disables for pressing CTRL+X ..  . but NOT Disabling the right-click context menu on a given activity . . ..  Please suggest a way to disable CUT

Here is the sample code that i have tried . . . . .

tracking composite activity

If I have a composite activity, I do not get any ActivityInstanceEvents of the contained activities. Is this by design, or can I configure something that those activities get tracked?

Custom sequence activity deriving from System.Workflow.Activities.SequenceActivity

Hi, I try to create custom sequence activity. I found some sample (http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/wfprerelease/thread/f54e8eb2-29d9-46f6-ad96-766fe6fad333/). But this custom activity looks ugly (to separate nested activity using ellipses instead of arrows). My question is - how to create custom sequence activity, which will look like sequence activity. I also found this sample - <ContentPresenter x:Uid="ContentPresenter_1" Content="{Binding}" Style="{x:Static sacdt:DesignerStylesDictionary.SequenceStyle}"/> When I used this ContentPresenter my custom activity looks like System.Workflow.Activities.SequenceActivity, but I couldn't put on it another activity. I also created class, which derives from System.Workflow.Activities.SequenceActivity, but I couldn't see it in toolbox. My question is - how to create class, which derives from System.Workflow.Activities.SequenceActivity and is visible in toolbox or how to use ContentPresenter for sequence activity, which allows put on itself another activity.

How to schedule activity loaded from external source inside NativeActivity

I have a NativeActivity that takes an InArgument<int> that is the primary key of some table that contains a piece of xaml. When the activity runs, it loads the xaml from the database and uses ActivityXamlServices to turn the xaml into an activity. Then I try to schedule the activity using NativeActivityContext.ScheduleActivity. This fails with the message: The provided activity was not part of this workflow definition when its metadata was being processed.  The problematic activity named 'Sequence' was provided by the activity named 'RunWorkflowFromStore'. This makes sense because I never added the activity I'm trying to run to the metadata. However, when can I do that? It is only at runtime that I know the value of the primary for the xaml I'm trying to load. Or am I doing this the wrong way? Here is my code: public sealed class RunWorkflowFromStore : NativeActivity<ApprovalState> { private Activity _activity; public InArgument<int> WorkflowId { get; set; } protected override void CacheMetadata(NativeActivityMetadata metadata) { var workflowIdArgument = new RuntimeArgument("WorkflowId", typeof(int), ArgumentDirection.In); metadata.Bind(WorkflowId, workflowIdArgument); metadata.AddArgument(workflowIdArgument); } protected override void Execute(NativeActivityContext context) { // Load activity

I need to be able to disable a button inside a repeater control when an item in the data is <1

For example, I have an inventory table. If any one of the items is less then one, I need to disable the button. <asp:Repeater id="repeater1" <ItemTemplate> <asp:Button id=btnSize /> </ItemTemplate> </asp:Repeater>  

CacheMetadata is not called when a custom activity is placed inside a flowchart

I wrote a simple Native activity which implements CacheMetadata(NativeActivityMetadata metadata) to declare arguments and variables. The activity works great but when I tried to use it inside a flowchart activity I found out that CacheMetadata is not called by visual studioo when the activity is dragged from the toolbox into the flow chart . This of course prevents my activity from working correctly. How can a custom activity be used inside a flowchart activity if CacheMetadata not called? Is there a way to make CacheMetadata run when the custom activity is placed inside a flowchart activity? Thanks Manu    

disable autopostback of checkbox inside of GridView during SelectedIndexChanged of ListView

Hi, I hope my question is clear: I have a checkbox placed inside a gridview: <GridView><asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Driver">   <ItemTemplate>       <asp:CheckBox ID="CheckBoxDriver" AutoPostBack="true" OnCheckedChanged="GridView_Persons_SelectedIndexChanged" ValidationGroup='<%# Eval("ID") + "-" +((GridViewRow)Container).RowIndex %>' CssClass="CXDriver" runat="server" Checked='false' />   </ItemTemplate>       </GridView> For example: A listViewItem 1 has 3 drivers are checked, A listViewItem 2 has 2 drivers are checked. Therefore, if changing the selectedIndex of the list, the checkbox indexChanged event will be fired. How could I disable the autopostback of the checkbox during the listview item changed. Thanks in advance

In 3.5 we could disable an activity in the designer, but this feature seems to be removed in 4.0. Is this correct or I just can't find it?    Thanks

Disable an activity in Designer at run time in workflow 4.0

There are couple of activities in my workflow & based on some condition, I need to make an activity disabled i.e. I don't want that activity to be seletable by the user. I am opening my workflow in designer at run time to give an overview of WF to the user. Something like  (new DesignerMetadata()).Register(); this.wd = new System.Activities.Presentation.WorkflowDesigner(); this.designerSection.Child = (this.wd.View); I was going thru the MS sample of CommentOut Activity but that won't solve my requirement as Activity needs to be disabled at run time based on some condition.

Disable a Specific News Feed Activity Using the Client Object Model


Hello and thanks for reading. I've been working with the out-of-box SharePoint 2010 News Feed portion of My Sites, and I am planning to deploy it to many users.

I am building a console application which will iterate through all of the my sites currently in the system and un-check one of the "Activities I am following' for each user. I have used the example provided at this link(MSDN) to come up with the following code:


 Public Class ChangeActivity

 'Reference: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff426883.aspx'

 Public Shared Sub ChangeActivityProperties()

		Using siteCol As New SPSite((My.Application.CommandLineArgs(0)))

					Dim context As SPServiceContext = SPServiceContext.GetContext(siteCol)

					Dim profileManager As New UserProfileManager(context)

					Dim profile As UserProfile = profileManager.GetUserProfile("THEDOMAIN\username")

					Dim activityMan As ActivityManager = New ActivityManager(profile, context)

					'Create an instance of a list of ActivityPreferencePerType objects.'

					Dim activityPrefsPerType As New List(Of ActivityPreferencePerType)(activityMan.ActivityTypes.Count)

Command inside WPF 4 DataGrid RowDetailsTemplate Not firing


Hi all,

I am using VS2010 WPF4 + Prism 2.2 to build my application. In oder to demo the issue, I built a very simple application here:

The Xaml of window (MainWindow.xaml), I defined a DataGrid and a button. I bind command of button inside row details to a DelegateCommand defined in ModelView, I also bind button (below the DataGrid) to another command.

<Window x:Class="WpfApplication1.MainWindow"

Using MVVM and commands inside of a datatemplate, the command wont execute.

Inside of my main view i have a datatemplate showing off all the items in an observable collection. now inside of that i want to set commanding on a radio button.

outside the datatemplate this works
<Button Height="23" Name="btnUpdate" Command="{Binding UpdateCommand}"
