Examples

The following code example shows how to create and set values for the HandleExternalEventActivity class. This code example is part of the RaiseEventToLoadWorkflow SDK sample from the DocumentApprovalWorkflow.cs file. For more information, see Raise Event To Load Workflow.

this.Car.Name = "Car";
this.Car.ExecuteCode += new System.EventHandler(this.Car_ExecuteCode);
this.Car.SetValue(System.Workflow.Activities.ConditionedActivityGroup.WhenConditionProperty, codecondition1);
codecondition2.Condition += new System.EventHandler<System.Workflow.Activities.ConditionalEventArgs>(this.AirlineCondition);
Me.Car.Name = "Car"
AddHandler Car.ExecuteCode, AddressOf Me.Car_ExecuteCode
Me.Car.SetValue(System.Workflow.Activities.ConditionedActivityGroup.WhenConditionProperty, codecondition1)
AddHandler codecondition2.Condition, AddressOf Me.AirlineCondition

Remarks

Note

This material discusses types and namespaces that are obsolete. For more information, see Deprecated Types in Windows Workflow Foundation 4.5.

A local service is a class that implements a local service interface (an interface that is marked with ExternalDataExchangeAttribute) and is added to the ExternalDataExchangeService.

The HandleExternalEventActivity receives data when the ExternalDataExchangeService service raises an event with event data derived from ExternalDataEventArgs.

The HandleExternalEventActivity is a blocking activity.

Classes that derive from HandleExternalEventActivity should not implement the IActivityEventListener<T> interface because the derived class does not execute correctly.

Constructors

HandleExternalEventActivity()

Initializes a new instance of the HandleExternalEventActivity class.

HandleExternalEventActivity(String)

Initializes a new instance of the HandleExternalEventActivity class using the name of the activity.

Fields

CorrelationTokenProperty

Represents the DependencyProperty that targets the CorrelationToken property.

EventNameProperty

Corresponds to the name of an event that is defined in an interface that was marked with the ExternalDataExchangeAttribute.

InterfaceTypeProperty

Corresponds to the name of the interface that was marked with the ExternalDataExchangeAttribute.

InvokedEvent

Defines an event delegate that is executed after the activity receives the expected event from the local service.

ParameterBindingsProperty

Represents the DependencyProperty that targets the ParameterBindings property.

Identifies the valid user roles that are allowed to send messages from the host to this activity. The two types of supported roles are Active Directory and ASP.NET.
