CodeActivity<TResult> CodeActivity<TResult> CodeActivity<TResult> CodeActivity<TResult> Class


An abstract class for creating a custom activity with imperative behavior defined in the Execute(CodeActivityContext) method, giving access to variable and argument resolution and extensions.

generic <typename TResult>
public ref class CodeActivity abstract : System::Activities::Activity<TResult>
public abstract class CodeActivity<TResult> : System.Activities.Activity<TResult>
type CodeActivity<'Result> = class
    inherit Activity<'Result>
Public MustInherit Class CodeActivity(Of TResult)
Inherits Activity(Of TResult)
Type Parameters

The result returned by the activity.



The following example shows how to derive a class from CodeActivity<TResult>.

public sealed class Add : CodeActivity<int>
    public InArgument<int> X { get; set; }
    public InArgument<int> Y { get; set; }

    protected override int Execute(CodeActivityContext context)
        int x = X.Get(context);
        int y = Y.Get(context);

        return x + y;


Derived classes can define a result value of the type specified in the type specifier of the class.


CodeActivity<TResult>() CodeActivity<TResult>() CodeActivity<TResult>() CodeActivity<TResult>()

When implemented in a derived class, creates an instance of the derived class.


CacheId CacheId CacheId CacheId

Gets the identifier of the cache that is unique within the scope of the workflow definition.
