WorkflowRuntime.WorkflowIdled WorkflowRuntime.WorkflowIdled WorkflowRuntime.WorkflowIdled WorkflowRuntime.WorkflowIdled Event

Definition

Occurs when a workflow instance enters the idle state.

public:
 event EventHandler<System::Workflow::Runtime::WorkflowEventArgs ^> ^ WorkflowIdled;
public event EventHandler<System.Workflow.Runtime.WorkflowEventArgs> WorkflowIdled;
member this.WorkflowIdled : EventHandler<System.Workflow.Runtime.WorkflowEventArgs> 
Public Event WorkflowIdled As EventHandler(Of WorkflowEventArgs) 

Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to use WorkflowRuntime functionality from a workflow host. The code associates the WorkflowIdled with an event handler, a method named OnWorkflowIdled.

This code example is part of the Canceling a Workflow sample.

static void Main()
{
    string connectionString = "Initial Catalog=SqlPersistenceService;Data Source=localhost;Integrated Security=SSPI;";

    using (WorkflowRuntime workflowRuntime = new WorkflowRuntime())
    {
        ExternalDataExchangeService dataService = new ExternalDataExchangeService();
        workflowRuntime.AddService(dataService);
        dataService.AddService(expenseService);

        workflowRuntime.AddService(new SqlWorkflowPersistenceService(connectionString));
        workflowRuntime.StartRuntime();

        workflowRuntime.WorkflowCompleted += OnWorkflowCompleted;
        workflowRuntime.WorkflowTerminated += OnWorkflowTerminated;
        workflowRuntime.WorkflowIdled += OnWorkflowIdled;
        workflowRuntime.WorkflowAborted += OnWorkflowAborted;

        Type type = typeof(SampleWorkflow1);
        WorkflowInstance workflowInstance = workflowRuntime.CreateWorkflow(type);
        workflowInstance.Start();

        waitHandle.WaitOne();

        workflowRuntime.StopRuntime();
    }
}
Shared Sub Main()
    Dim connectionString As String = "Initial Catalog=SqlPersistenceService;Data Source=localhost;Integrated Security=SSPI;"
    Using workflowRuntime As New WorkflowRuntime()
        Dim dataService As New ExternalDataExchangeService()
        workflowRuntime.AddService(dataService)
        dataService.AddService(expenseService)

        workflowRuntime.AddService(New SqlWorkflowPersistenceService(connectionString))


        AddHandler workflowRuntime.WorkflowCompleted, AddressOf OnWorkflowCompleted
        AddHandler workflowRuntime.WorkflowTerminated, AddressOf OnWorkflowTerminated
        AddHandler workflowRuntime.WorkflowIdled, AddressOf OnWorkflowIdled
        AddHandler workflowRuntime.WorkflowAborted, AddressOf OnWorkflowAborted


        Dim workflowInstance As WorkflowInstance
        workflowInstance = workflowRuntime.CreateWorkflow(GetType(SampleWorkflow))
        workflowInstance.Start()

        waitHandle.WaitOne()

        workflowRuntime.StopRuntime()
    End Using
End Sub

Remarks

The workflow run-time engine raises the WorkflowIdled event when the workflow instance enters an idle state; for example, when the workflow is waiting for a DelayActivity activity to complete.

For this event, the sender contains the WorkflowRuntime and WorkflowEventArgs contains the WorkflowInstance associated with the event.

For more information about handling events, see Handling and raising events.
