CodeActivity.CacheMetadata CodeActivity.CacheMetadata CodeActivity.CacheMetadata CodeActivity.CacheMetadata Method

Definition

Creates and validates a description of the activity's arguments, variables, child activities, and activity delegates.

Overloads

CacheMetadata(ActivityMetadata) CacheMetadata(ActivityMetadata) CacheMetadata(ActivityMetadata) CacheMetadata(ActivityMetadata)

Not implemented. Use CacheMetadata(CodeActivityMetadata) instead.

CacheMetadata(CodeActivityMetadata) CacheMetadata(CodeActivityMetadata) CacheMetadata(CodeActivityMetadata) CacheMetadata(CodeActivityMetadata)

Creates and validates a description of the activity's arguments, variables, child activities, and activity delegates.

Remarks

Custom activity authors can provide validation logic in an activity's CacheMetadata override. Any exceptions that are thrown from CacheMetadata are not treated as validation errors. These exceptions will escape from the call to Validate and must be handled by the caller.

CacheMetadata(ActivityMetadata) CacheMetadata(ActivityMetadata) CacheMetadata(ActivityMetadata) CacheMetadata(ActivityMetadata)

Not implemented. Use CacheMetadata(CodeActivityMetadata) instead.

protected:
 override void CacheMetadata(System::Activities::ActivityMetadata metadata);
protected override sealed void CacheMetadata (System.Activities.ActivityMetadata metadata);
override this.CacheMetadata : System.Activities.ActivityMetadata -> unit
Protected Overrides NotOverridable Sub CacheMetadata (metadata As ActivityMetadata)

Parameters

CacheMetadata(CodeActivityMetadata) CacheMetadata(CodeActivityMetadata) CacheMetadata(CodeActivityMetadata) CacheMetadata(CodeActivityMetadata)

Creates and validates a description of the activity's arguments, variables, child activities, and activity delegates.

protected:
 virtual void CacheMetadata(System::Activities::CodeActivityMetadata metadata);
protected virtual void CacheMetadata (System.Activities.CodeActivityMetadata metadata);
override this.CacheMetadata : System.Activities.CodeActivityMetadata -> unit
Protected Overridable Sub CacheMetadata (metadata As CodeActivityMetadata)

Parameters

metadata
CodeActivityMetadata CodeActivityMetadata CodeActivityMetadata CodeActivityMetadata

The activity's metadata that encapsulates the activity's arguments, variables, child activities, and activity delegates.

Remarks

The workflow runtime uses the default implementation of CacheMetadata to ensure correct construction of a workflow as well as to manage runtime relationships and lifetime rules. The default implementation of CacheMetadata examines the public members of the activity type using the type's TypeDescriptor. These public members are of type Argument, Variable, IEnumerable<Variable>, Activity, IEnumerable<Activity>, or ActivityDelegate. You can override this method to customize the building of the activity's run-time description and to provide custom validation logic. Any exceptions that are thrown from CacheMetadata are not treated as validation errors. These exceptions will escape from the call to Validate and must be handled by the caller.
