custom workflow visual studio 2010 for SharePoint 2010


Hi Everybody,

I have written a custom workflow in visual studio 2010 with custom Task Edit Form which is associated with content type and that content type is in turn associated with Task List. When an item is created in the target list to which my custom workflow is attached, a task item is created when I click on that task item it loads the custom Task Edit Form page where I have defined the UI and on click of Approve button I just Alter the task by using method SPWorkflowTask.AlterTask(this._TaskListItem, taskHash, true); when this line executed it executes the Task Changed invoked method where I am taking true and false value from the UI and updates the corresponding metadata in target list.

The problem is when I create 2 target list items their workflow status becomes pending and when I approve one of them, both the items get approved i.e. Task Changed event get called 2 times and both line items workflow status become completed. The task list item corresponding to one approved get 100% completed but other one did not show its completion.

Custom Task form of a SharePoint Designer workflow is not displaying correctly


We have created a custom workflow using SharePoint Designer. We are using one action “Collect Data from a User”. As you know, this action sends an email to a user with a link to a task form where user is supposed to accept or reject a request. We are encountering following issues with this form:

  1. Form is not a workflow form, it is a task item of the task list that the “Collect Data from a User” action of the workflow creates.
  2. Form opens as an item of the workflow task list in View mode (DispForm.ASPX) instead of Edit mode (EditForm. ASPX)
  3. When user clicks on “Edit Item” button, it displays all the fields of the task as editable – we want only the Approve/Reject option buttons and the comments TextBox (that we created during the workflow design) to be displayed as editable

Can someone please explain what is going on and how can we resolve the above issues?

Workflow Compilation in Visual Studio 2010



As I understand it, when visual studio 'compiles' a workflow what this really means is that it creates a stub class with the necessary properties on and it creates the XAML file as a resource and it then creates some static methods for loading and compiling this resource at runtime.

My question based on this is how do I truly compile it? So that it is compiled into IL as if I had written the workflow in code? Instead of embedding the XAML as a resource and compiling at run time?


Windows Application Migration - Visual Studio 2008 to 2010 - The "GenerateResource" task failed unex


I hav a windows forms application built using VS 2008 which I am trying to migrate to VS 2010 & .net 4.0.

How to assign values to workflow task person or group custom field?

Using visual studio 2008, in createTask_MethodInvoking, I have the following code. RequestFields has the values from the InfoPath form. ApprovingPersons is a person or group field, added to the task list by my custom task content type. I checked the task list associated with the workflow and I see the custom field.

SPUser user;
SPFieldUserValueCollection fuvc = new SPFieldUserValueCollection();
foreach (Contact person in RequestFields.Persons)
      user = workflowProperties.Web.EnsureUser(person.LoginName);
      fuvc.Add(new SPFieldUserValue(workflowProperties.Web, user.ID, user.Name));

// this is the line causing problem, I believe
PreApprovalTask_TaskProperties.ExtendedProperties["ApprovingPersons"] = fuvc;

I got the following error message:

at System.RuntimeMethodHandle._InvokeMethodFast(Object target, Object[] arguments, SignatureStruct& sig, MethodAttributes methodAttributes, RuntimeTypeHandle typeOwner)
