Simple Sequential Workflow Sample

Download sample

This sample uses the Windows Workflow Foundation component model to construct a simple purchase order (PO) approval workflow with a single IfElseActivity activity and two IfElseBranchActivity activities. Each branch contains a CodeActivity activity that writes to the console whether the order was approved or rejected. The IfElseActivity activity uses a code condition to evaluate which branch to take. In this sample, the condition always returns true. Therefore, the first branch is always taken and the program reports that all orders are approved.
