I am developing custom activity designers based on "WorkflowViewElement" instead of "ActivityDesigner" in my xaml. It allows me to have greater control of the look and feel of the designer.
However I noticed that with this approach, the breakpoint visual cue (Dark red solid circle that appears on the left side of the designer when you set breakpoint on the designer) is not visible. It works fine when you write your designed based on "ActivityDesigner".
The same behavior happens to the debug visual cue when you debugging the WF. It appears as bright yellow rectangle surrounding the activity designer if you are based on "ActivityDesigner", but it is not available when your designer is based on"WorkflowViewElement".
Any help is highly appreciated.
