Switch<T> Switch<T> Switch<T> Switch<T> Class

Definition

Selects one choice from a number of activities to execute, based on the value of a given expression of the type specified in this object's type specifier.

generic <typename T>
public ref class Switch sealed : System::Activities::NativeActivity
[System.Windows.Markup.ContentProperty("Cases")]
public sealed class Switch<T> : System.Activities.NativeActivity
type Switch<'T> = class
    inherit NativeActivity
Public NotInheritable Class Switch(Of T)
Inherits NativeActivity

Type Parameters

T

The type of the values provided in the Cases collection.

Examples

The following code sample demonstrates creating a Switch<T> activity. This example is from the Using Procedural Activities sample.

// check if the number is ok...
new Switch<int>()
{
    DisplayName = "Verify Value from User",
    Expression = ExpressionServices.Convert<int>( env => numberFromUser.Get(env).CompareTo(numberToGuess.Get(env)) ),
    Cases = 
    {
        { 0, new Assign<bool>()
            {
                To = new OutArgument<bool>(finished),
                Value = true
            }
        },
        {  1, new WriteLine() { Text = "    Try a lower number number..." } }, 
        { -1, new WriteLine() { Text = "    Try a higher number" } }
    }
}

Remarks

Each case in the Cases dictionary consists of a value (serving as the key for the dictionary) and an activity (serving as the value for the dictionary). The Expression is evaluated and compared against the keys in the Cases dictionary. If a match is found, the corresponding activity is executed. Every key in the Cases dictionary must be unique according to the dictionary's equality comparer.

Constructors

Switch<T>() Switch<T>() Switch<T>() Switch<T>()

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

Switch<T>(Activity<T>) Switch<T>(Activity<T>) Switch<T>(Activity<T>) Switch<T>(Activity<T>)

Creates a new instance of the Switch<T> class with the specified expression.

Switch<T>(Expression<Func<ActivityContext,T>>) Switch<T>(Expression<Func<ActivityContext,T>>) Switch<T>(Expression<Func<ActivityContext,T>>) Switch<T>(Expression<Func<ActivityContext,T>>)

Creates a new instance of the Switch<T> class with the specified expression.

Switch<T>(InArgument<T>) Switch<T>(InArgument<T>) Switch<T>(InArgument<T>) Switch<T>(InArgument<T>)

Properties

CacheId CacheId CacheId CacheId

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

(Inherited from Activity)
CanInduceIdle CanInduceIdle CanInduceIdle CanInduceIdle

Gets or sets a value that indicates whether the activity can cause the workflow to become idle.

(Inherited from NativeActivity)
Cases Cases Cases Cases

Represents the dictionary of potential execution paths. Each entry contains a key and an activity that is executed when the result of the expression matches the key.

Constraints Constraints Constraints Constraints

Gets a collection of Constraint activities that can be configured to provide validation for the Activity.

(Inherited from Activity)
Default Default Default Default

Represents the activity that is executed if no keys of entries in the Cases collection match the Expression property.

DisplayName DisplayName DisplayName DisplayName

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

(Inherited from Activity)
Expression Expression Expression Expression

Gets the object to compare to the keys in the Cases collection.

Id Id Id Id

Gets an identifier that is unique in the scope of the workflow definition.

(Inherited from Activity)
Implementation Implementation Implementation Implementation

The execution logic of the activity.

(Inherited from NativeActivity)
ImplementationVersion ImplementationVersion ImplementationVersion ImplementationVersion

Gets or sets the implementation version of the activity.

Methods

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

(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.
