How to start a workflow programmatically that was created in Sharepoint designer 2010?

  
Trying to start a workflow from code.  The workflow itself has been created in SPD 2010, which from what I understand, means that there is no assembly until the first time it's ran.  However, when I try to find the association record, that doesnt exist.  Is this becuase the 'code' hasnt been compiled yet?  If so, how can I have sharepoint start the just-in-time compiler for a declarative based workflow, so that can kick it off with in code? tia Rocky SandersRocky Sanders

How to create a workflow programmatically?

  
Are there any samples that would show how to create and/or modify a workflow programmatically, i.e. from a program, not from VS.NET IDE or a hosted designer? For example, the program would create a new workflow, add a couple of activities to it, and save the serialized workflow definition (in a file or database). I can find examples explaining how to modify a workflow instance at run time, but I need to create a workflow definition, not the instance. Any hints? Thanks.Alek

Programmatically Complete Designer Workflow

  
I have a SharePoint Designer Workflow that spawns a task when a new item is created in a SharePoint list.  I want to be able to complete the task and the workflow programmatically.  I'm able to complete the task successfully, but the workflow itself refuses to terminate and is always listed as "In Progress", no matter what I try.

Here's what I'm currently trying:

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.

Creating an Excel Spreadsheet programmatically using VB.NET

  
The Interoperability services make it very easy to work with COM Capable Applications such as Word and Excel. This article reveals using Excel from a managed application. Excel is the spreadsheet component of Microsoft Office 2000. The majority of Excel programmatic functionality is exposed through Automation via the type library Excel9.olb. The intention of this article is to express that a managed application can interrelate with Excel as a COM server.

using the linqDataSource control programmatically (dynamically)

  

Hello,

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.

the linqDataSource on the aspx page:

<asp:LinqDataSource ID="ldsMain" runat="server" 
        ContextTypeName="myProject.myProjectDataContext" 
        Select="new (field1, field2, field3, etc..)" 
        TableName="theTableName">
</asp:LinqDat

Workflow Services: Visual Design of Workflows with WCF and WF 4

  

The .NET Framework 4 makes it easier than ever to implement WCF services using WF. We'll demonstrate just how easy it is by modeling a long-running, durable and instrumented workflow based on a real-world business case without having to write any code.

Foundations: Workflow Services for Local Communication

  

This month's column describes how to use WCF for communication between a workflow and a host application in Windows Workflow Foundation 3. This knowledge should help developers with their efforts using WF3 and prepare them for WF4, where WCF is the only abstraction over queues (referred to as "bookmarks" in WF4) that ships with the framework.

Foundations: Windows Workflow Design Patterns

  

Design patterns provide a common, repeatable approach to solving software development tasks, and many different patterns can describe how to accomplish a certain goal in code. When developers begin working with Windows Workflow Foundation (WF), they often ask about how to accomplish common tasks with the technology. This month's column discusses several design patterns used in WF.
