Is it possible to to have a 2 event driven activities in the same state

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 14, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#
Hi there,

I am trying to implement a sharepoint state machine workflow that consists of several states, it is designed to handle an infopath form although I am only developing against a 2 column custom list list for now. Besides the obligatory start and end states, I have 3 "waiting for" states, the details aren't important. 

I need to use the delay activity to count down, the end upon which a class variable checked, in this case a date. If the current date is less than the class variable date the state is simply re-entered. the countdown begins again. If the date is greater then a deadline has passed, an email is sent, the class variable is reset to, lets say adddays(2) and the state is again. Pretty standard escalation stuff and completely achievable.

so the state looks like:

                -setState to waitForWhoeverState
                -sendEmail, setDate, setState to waitForWhoeverState

This is fine, but besides send a few emails doesn't actually do anything. So I what I want to do is add another event driven activity in this state which listens for a change in either in the workflow item or a task for example. Again I can get that to work as well. I change something on the form or list. The event fires and something happens. Great!

State Machine Workflow + External Event + Delay activity



I have state machine workflow with a state contain 2 event driven activities, one is waiting for an external event, and second one is delay. If the external event didn't happen within specified time, timeout occurs and send email. But if the external event delivered, it transited to next state.


Both situation works fine. But once the external event occurred and transited to next state, the delay activity time out happens and it sends the mail. I don't want it happen, When i read through various blog, I learnt that once the workflow instance moved to next state, all event subscriptions related to the previous state are removed from the queue.... But it is not happening in my situation

Kindly help me to find where i am going and to resolve this issue..


p.s I set manualworkflow scheduler  - useActiv

Change ToggleButton/RadioButton state only on external event



I want to have several ToggleButton/RadioButton elements that

  1. Map to an enumeration, meaning the DataContext has a "public Mode CurrentMode" property.
  2. Are mutually exclusive (only one button is checked)
  3. When a button is clicked, the state doesn't change immediately. Instead, a request is sent to a server. The state changes when the response arrives.
  4.  Have a different image for checked/unchecked state


Truly Understanding View State

This article provides a detailed understanding of the ViewState.

Design Patterns - Using the State Pattern in C#

What is the State Pattern?

The State Pattern is a behavioral pattern that can be used to alter the behavior of an object at run time. As the state of an object changes, the functionality of the object can change drastically. This change of behavior is hidden from the Client and the Client interfaces with a wrapper object known as the Context. The State Pattern is a dynamic version of the Strategy Pattern.

Radio Button Event

view state vs request parameters


If  the view state is the data entered into the form fields then they are supposed to be available in the request parameters or request body. Then why would we need view state for?


how to impose javascript event processing?


If I have some form control like textbox and I want the event handler to be located in the html instead of at the server side, how to do that? Of course I can copy paste javascript code in the aspx file. But is it possible to do that using some object oriented approach (ie programmatically in the code behind)?


Dropdown Event (Template Field)

SQL Server Session state problem.


Hi to all,

I have some things that I want to know. I am right now using a free asp.net webhosting ("somee.com"). The problem is that when I am visiting a page, there's a tendency that values stored in my session variables are lost. Therefore, it causes an error when the requested page is loaded.

1. I am thinking of using sessionState mode="SqlServer". Will it solve my problem?

Actualy Im working on it but Im having problems when connecting to the sql database.

2.  Is that a problem in the webhost?

3. Do free webhosting sites provide allow session state in the sql server?. Because ive tried it locally into my computer and error say's i should intall the ASP.NET Session State SQL Server version 2.0 or above.

Event ID 1011 - DefaultAppPool World Wid Web Pub. Serv. fatal communication error

We have a Windows 2003 server running IIS6 1.1 Framework. We have also installed a DNS and Active Directory in the same machine.

We're randomly getting the error you can see below. Sometimes it causes the recycling of process w3wp.exe (which on my understanding represents the application pool worker processd) and other times results on this process hanging and not responding to any request. To do iisrest temporarly solves the problem.

We were pointed to a possible permissions problem between the user we were runnig the DefaultAppPool with and registry entries used by the iis. We noticed the default predifined user we used, Network Service, wasn't found in the Active Directory, so we changed it by the default configurable user, IWAM_MACHINE_NAME, which is under the IIS_WPG Active Directory Grupo, which, in theory has the correct permissions to run the application pool.

Well, none of this worked and we are still getting this error.

This is driving us crazy and think the problem might have to do with having the Domain Controller/Active Directory and the IIS6 running on the same machine. We'll try now uninstalling this DC pointing to another one to see what happens.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,


Event Type: Warning

Event not raised while parsing xml file



In Visual Studio 2010 ASP.NET 4.0

I want to write a procedure to validate a xml file with a xsd. I found some examples on the web but the one i chose does not work as attended. The example uses XmlReader with a XmlReaderSettings and a ValidationEventHandler.

Here is the code

Protected Sub VerifyDes(ByVal filename As String)

        Dim xslDes As XmlReaderSettings = New XmlReaderSettings()
        xslDes.Schemas.Add("", "http://www.mysite.com/xsd/ValidData.xml")
        xslDes.ValidationType = ValidationType.Schema
        xslDes.ValidationFlags = XmlSchemaValidationFlags.ReportValidationWarnings

        AddHandler xslDes.ValidationEventHandler, AddressOf xslDesValidationEventHandler

        Dim des As XmlReader = XmlReader.Create(filename, xslDes)

        While (des.Read())

        End While

    End Sub

    Protected Sub xslDesValidationEventHandler(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As ValidationEventArgs)

        'some code here
    End Sub

I tested this procedure with a xml file which was well formed but contained some elements which were not conform to the xsd.

No event or error occured. It said the file was valid.

Then i tested with a badly formed file. A XmlException was raised but nothing happened with the ValidationEventHandler.

It seems lik

How to set up microsoft application blocks 4.0 to talk to event viewer


I need to set up the microsoft application blocks 4.0 on the server and connect it to my web project.  I need to set it up so that all the errors are logged in the event viewer.  So far I have found out how to set up a flat file listener and send the error to a log file but, not to the event viewer.  Any suggestions would be helpful.
