Definition

Enumerates the elements of a collection and executes an embedded statement for each element of the collection in parallel.

Examples

The following code sample demonstrates creating a ParallelForEach<T> activity. This example is from the Corporate Purchase Process sample.

// invite all vendors and wait for their proposals
new ParallelForEach<Vendor>
{
    DisplayName = "Get vendor proposals",
    Values = new InArgument<IEnumerable<Vendor>>(ctx =>this.Rfp.Get(ctx).InvitedVendors),
    Body = new ActivityAction<Vendor>()
    {                                    
        Argument = iterationVariableVendor,
        Handler = new Sequence
        {
            Variables = { tmpValue },
            Activities =
            {
                // waits for a vendor proposal (creates a bookmark for a vendor)
                new WaitForVendorProposal 
                { 
                    VendorId = new LambdaValue<int>(ctx =>iterationVariableVendor.Get(ctx).Id) ,
                    Result = new OutArgument<double>(tmpValue)
                },

                // after the vendor proposal is received, it is registered in the Request for Proposals
                new InvokeMethod
                {
                    TargetObject = new InArgument<RequestForProposal>(ctx =>this.Rfp.Get(ctx)),
                    MethodName = "RegisterProposal",
                    Parameters = 
                    {
                        new InArgument<Vendor>(iterationVariableVendor),
                        new InArgument<double>(tmpValue)
                    }
                },
            }
        }                        
    }
},

Remarks

The embedded statements are scheduled together and run asynchronously, but unless the scheduled activities themselves are asynchronous (such as messaging activities, InvokeMethod, or activities that derive from AsyncCodeActivity), they do not run on separate threads, so each successive activity will only execute when the previously scheduled activity completes or goes idle. If none of the child activities of this activity are asynchronous or go idle, this activity execute in the same way that a ForEach<T> activity does.

Constructors

ParallelForEach<T>() ParallelForEach<T>() ParallelForEach<T>() ParallelForEach<T>()

Creates a new instance of the ParallelForEach<T> class.

Properties

Body Body Body Body

(Inherited from Activity)
DisplayName DisplayName DisplayName DisplayName

Gets or sets an optional friendly name that is used for debugging, validation, exception handling, and tracking.
