DesignerTheme DesignerTheme DesignerTheme DesignerTheme Class



This API is now obsolete.

Supplies base class implementation for all activity designer theme classes used in a workflow design-time environment.

public ref class DesignerTheme abstract : IDisposable
[System.Obsolete("The System.Workflow.* types are deprecated.  Instead, please use the new types from System.Activities.*")]
public abstract class DesignerTheme : IDisposable

Implements IDisposable



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

All classes that supply theme property settings to ActivityDesigner classes must inherit from the DesignerTheme class. Designer themes provide a set of property values with which to display background and foreground colors and styles, fonts, and other style settings for the designer classes displayed on a workflow design surface.

The AmbientTheme class also inherits from DesignerTheme.
