Examples

The following example shows how to create a CorrelationScope. This example creates a Sequence and adds a CorrelationScope (among other activities). The CorrelationScope contains a Sequence that is composed of a Send and ReceiveReply activity.

return new Sequence
{
    Variables = { po, customer },
    Activities =
    {                    
        new Assign<PurchaseOrder> 
        {
            To = po,
            Value = new InArgument<PurchaseOrder>( (e) => new PurchaseOrder() { PartName = "Widget", Quantity = 150 } )
        },
        new Assign<Customer>
        {
            To = customer,
            Value = new InArgument<Customer>( (e) => new Customer() { Id = 12345678, Name = "John Smith" } )
        },
        new WriteLine { Text = new InArgument<string>( (e) => string.Format("Submitting new PurchaseOrder for {0} {1}s", po.Get(e).Quantity, po.Get(e).PartName) ) },
        new CorrelationScope
        {
            Body = new Sequence
            { 
                Activities = 
                {
                    submitPO,
                    new ReceiveReply
                    {
                        Request = submitPO,
                        Content = ReceiveContent.Create(new OutArgument<int>( (e) => po.Get(e).Id ))
                    }
                }
            }
        },                    
        new WriteLine { Text = new InArgument<string>( (e) => string.Format("Received ID for new PO: {0}", po.Get(e).Id) ) },
        new Assign<int> { To = new OutArgument<int>( (e) => po.Get(e).Quantity ), Value = 250 },
        new WriteLine { Text = "Updated PO with new quantity: 250.  Resubmitting updated PurchaseOrder based on POId." },
        new Send
        {
            Endpoint = clientEndpoint,
            ServiceContractName = Constants.POContractName,
            OperationName = Constants.UpdatePOName,
            Content = SendContent.Create(new InArgument<PurchaseOrder>(po))
        },           
        new Assign<int> 
        { 
            To = new OutArgument<int>( (e) => po.Get(e).CustomerId ), 
            Value = new InArgument<int>( (e) => customer.Get(e).Id )
        },
        new WriteLine { Text = "Updating customer data based on CustomerId." },
        new Send
        {
            Endpoint = clientEndpoint,
            ServiceContractName = Constants.POContractName,
            OperationName = Constants.AddCustomerInfoName,
            Content = SendContent.Create(new InArgument<PurchaseOrder>(po))
        },                    
        new Send
        {
            Endpoint = clientEndpoint,
            ServiceContractName = Constants.POContractName,
            OperationName = Constants.UpdateCustomerName,
            Content = SendContent.Create(new InArgument<Customer>(customer))
        },
        new WriteLine { Text = "Client completed." }
    }
};

Remarks

The CorrelationScope activity maintains an implicit CorrelationHandle that is only visible to child activities. When the CorrelatesWith property is set by the user, it will be used as the CorrelationScope implicit handle. In the case of nested CorrelationScope, children of the inner scope cannot access implicit handle of the outer scope.

Constructors

CorrelationScope() CorrelationScope() CorrelationScope() CorrelationScope()

Initializes a new instance of the CorrelationScope class.
