Is there a plan to support a custom activity type as a root document in xaml on VS workflow designer



Referring to the post below. It seems that the current VS workflow designer only support "Activity" type as a root document. Is there a plan to support a custom activity type as a root document in xaml on next release of WF?




SQL Tracking Service XAML only (Type, Workflow and Activity db tables)


Ok, we've implemented workflow completely into our system now and I've starting to see the tracking database grow fairly quickly, which was expected


I am now working on a purge routine and or partitioning.


What I have noticed is that the Workflow and Type db tables will constantly grow no matter what.  They are not considered "partitioned" tables.


My main question is the architectural decision around this XAML only approach of tracking versus the code behind\beside approach.  I have a hypothesis I will present below.

Can't display an image from the database



My database has a products table that has images stored in a varbinary(MAX) column.

I'm trying to display product information in a repeater and trying to display the images as well by using a GenericHandler class but I can't get the image to show up in my page.

Here is my Handler.ashx class:

Public Class Handler
    Implements System.Web.IHttpHandler

    Sub ProcessRequest(ByVal context As HttpContext) Implements IHttpHandler.ProcessRequest

        '== Set up the response settings
        context.Response.ContentType = "image/gif"
        context.Response.BufferOutput = False

        Dim id As Integer = -1
        Dim stream As Stream = Nothing
        If Not String.IsNullOrEmpty(context.Request.QueryString("id")) Then
            id = context.Request.QueryString("id")
            stream = GetImage(id)
        End If

        Const buffersize As Integer = 1024 * 16
        Dim buffer(buffersize) As Byte
        'byte[] buffer = new byte[buffersize];
        Dim count As Integer = stream.Read(buffer, 0, buffersize)

        While count > 0
            context.Response.OutputStream.Write(buffer, 0, count)
            count = stream.Read(buffer, 0, buffersize)
        End While

How to use display Text in Hyperlink For SharePoint 2010 Designer Workflow


In SharePoint 2007 Designer, I have used the Hyperlink column to store the link "http://www.sharepoint.com/Default.aspx, Details". The details text will be shown in the Hyperlink column. Everything works fine in sharepoint 2007 Designer workflow.

In SharePoint Designer 2010 Workflow, I used the same method but the hyperlink column is displaying the full text "http://www.sharepoint.com/Default.aspx, Details" instead of only Details


How to Cancel a Workflow Activity - LogToHistoryListActivity


How can I cancel a LogToHistoryListActivity? I don't understand how to get access to the ActivityExecutionContext. I guess one way is to add an IfElse before entry to avoid the activity completely. Casting the sender object does not work. Help anyone?

  private void logToHistoryListActivity_WorkflowActivated_MethodInvoking(object sender, EventArgs e)
   LogToHistoryListActivity log = (LogToHistoryListActivity)sender;
   string msg = string.Format("Work Request has been SAVED by {0}. Awaiting submittal.", workflowProperties.Originator);
   WFHelper.LogMessageToHistoryList(log, msg, null);

Sequential Workflow project unable to compile referencing x64 Workflow Activity Library

Folks -   I have an sequential workflow project targeting x64 that will not compile if the workflow activity library that it references is compiled for x64 (it will compile if the activity library targets x86).  The compile error I receive is: Compilation failed. Unable to load one or more of the requested types. Retrieve the LoaderExceptions property for more information. [project name]   Any thoughts on how to figure this out?   Thanks.

How to display breakpoint and debug visual cues with custom activity designer based on WorkflowViewE

Hi,   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. Li

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.

Display image icon in HyperLinkField of Gridview

 Hello everyone! Can someone please tell me how to display an image in a HyperLinkField of a gridview?  Instead of words, I just want to show a simple little icon that can be clicked on and pass a query string to the next page.  The first hyperlink field I have set up works perfectly and passes the querystring to the next page.   The second hyperlinkfield is my attempt at showing the image but it's giving me a squiggly and telling me "the element img cannot be nested within the element hyperlinkfield" I got this technique from this brief article   - I would like to accomplish exactly what it says it is suppose to do. Thanks!   <asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False" DataKeyNames="clientID"> <Columns> <asp:BoundField DataField="clientFirstName" HeaderText="First Name" /> <asp:BoundField DataField="clientLastName" HeaderText="Last Name" /> <asp:HyperLinkField HeaderText="More Info" Text="View more info..."

Dynamic workflow with While activity

We have a very strange problem with WWF 3.5. All our workflows are loaded dynamically, i.e we have different  assemblies containing libraries of the workflows. We starting each workflow by specifying path to assembly and name of the workflow class in the assembly:     Assembly  workflowAssembly = Assembly.LoadFrom(path);     Type  workflowType = workflowAssembly.GetType(name ); We are creating work flow instance as following and execute starts:     WorkflowInstance instance =     workflowRuntime.CreateWorkflow(workflowType, dictParameters);      instance.Start(); Everything works just fine till it hits the While activity. Here workflow is terminated because of the exceptions. Interesting thing is that exceptions here are different depending on what work flow is doing. In case when loop execute sequence activity containing just code activity which increasing some index by 1 each iteration (what could be simpler!) exception is, providing as part of the WorkflowTerminatedEventArgs e: Exception    {"Error binding to target method."}    System.Exception {System.Runtime.Serialization.SerializationException}   When our assembly containing workflows has name  "TestLibPghWWF" and inside While activity, the sequence activity contains real,&
