Rehosting the Workflow Designer

This topic applies to Windows Workflow Foundation 4 (WF4).

The Windows Workflow Designer can be rehosted in environments outside of Visual Studio 2010 for the purposes of creating, modifying, and monitoring workflows.

The WorkflowDesigner type is a wrapper of the canvas, property grid, and other elements, and exposes a basic programming model to handle the majority of designer rehosting scenarios. Hosting the WorkflowDesigner inside a Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) application is a common rehosting scenario for Workflow Designer.
