Flowchart Flowchart Flowchart Flowchart Class

Definition

Represents the models workflows using the familiar flowchart paradigm.

Examples

The following code sample demonstrates creating a Flowchart activity. This example is from the Fault Handling in a Flowchart Activity Using TryCatch sample.

Flowchart flowChart = new Flowchart
{
    DisplayName = "Promotional Discount Calculation",
    Variables = {discount, promo, numberOfKids},
    StartNode = promoCodeSwitch,
    Nodes = 
    { 
        promoCodeSwitch, 
        singleStep, 
        mnkStep, 
        mwkStep, 
        discountDefault, 
        flowDecision, 
        discountApplied, 
        discountNotApplied
    }
};

Remarks

The Flowchart activity allows free-form creation of a workflow using nodes and links.

Constructors

Flowchart() Flowchart() Flowchart() Flowchart()

Creates a new instance of the Flowchart class.

Properties

ValidateUnconnectedNodes ValidateUnconnectedNodes ValidateUnconnectedNodes ValidateUnconnectedNodes

Gets or sets a value that indicates whether unconnected nodes are validated.

Variables Variables Variables Variables

Gets or sets the collection of Variable objects associated with the Flowchart, which are available to share state across the child activities contained within the Flowchart.

Methods

Abort(NativeActivityAbortContext) Abort(NativeActivityAbortContext) Abort(NativeActivityAbortContext) Abort(NativeActivityAbortContext)

When implemented in a derived class, takes actions in response to the activity being aborted.

(Inherited from NativeActivity)
CacheMetadata(ActivityMetadata) CacheMetadata(ActivityMetadata) CacheMetadata(ActivityMetadata) CacheMetadata(ActivityMetadata)

Not implemented. Use the CacheMetadata(NativeActivityMetadata) method instead.

(Inherited from NativeActivity)
CacheMetadata(NativeActivityMetadata) CacheMetadata(NativeActivityMetadata) CacheMetadata(NativeActivityMetadata) CacheMetadata(NativeActivityMetadata)

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

(Inherited from NativeActivity)
Cancel(NativeActivityContext) Cancel(NativeActivityContext) Cancel(NativeActivityContext) Cancel(NativeActivityContext)

When implemented in a derived class, runs logic to cause graceful early completion of the activity.

(Inherited from NativeActivity)
Equals(Object) Equals(Object) Equals(Object) Equals(Object)

Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.

(Inherited from Object)
Execute(NativeActivityContext) Execute(NativeActivityContext) Execute(NativeActivityContext) Execute(NativeActivityContext)

When implemented in a derived class, runs the activity's execution logic.

(Inherited from NativeActivity)
GetHashCode() GetHashCode() GetHashCode() GetHashCode()

Serves as the default hash function.

(Inherited from Object)
GetType() GetType() GetType() GetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.

(Inherited from Object)
MemberwiseClone() MemberwiseClone() MemberwiseClone() MemberwiseClone()

Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.

(Inherited from Object)
OnCreateDynamicUpdateMap(NativeActivityUpdateMapMetadata, Activity) OnCreateDynamicUpdateMap(NativeActivityUpdateMapMetadata, Activity) OnCreateDynamicUpdateMap(NativeActivityUpdateMapMetadata, Activity) OnCreateDynamicUpdateMap(NativeActivityUpdateMapMetadata, Activity)

Raises an event when creating a map for the dynamic update.

(Inherited from NativeActivity)
OnCreateDynamicUpdateMap(UpdateMapMetadata, Activity) OnCreateDynamicUpdateMap(UpdateMapMetadata, Activity) OnCreateDynamicUpdateMap(UpdateMapMetadata, Activity) OnCreateDynamicUpdateMap(UpdateMapMetadata, Activity)

Raises an event when creating a map for the dynamic update.

Indicates whether the DisplayName property should be serialized.

(Inherited from Activity)
ToString() ToString() ToString() ToString()

Returns a String that contains the Id and DisplayName of the Activity.

(Inherited from Activity)
UpdateInstance(NativeActivityUpdateContext) UpdateInstance(NativeActivityUpdateContext) UpdateInstance(NativeActivityUpdateContext) UpdateInstance(NativeActivityUpdateContext)

Updates the instance of NativeActivity.
