The WriteLine Activity
Using the WriteLine Activity Designer
The WriteLine activity designer can be found in the Primitives category of the Toolbox, which is accessed by clicking the Toolbox tab of the Workflow Designer (Alternatively, select Toolbar from the View menu, or CTRL+ALT+X.)
The WriteLine activity designer can be dragged from the Toolbox and dropped on to the Workflow Designer surface wherever activities are usually placed, such as inside a Sequence. This creates a WriteLine activity with a default DisplayName of WriteLine. The DisplayName can be edited in the header of the WriteLine activity designer or in the DisplayName box of the property grid.

The following table shows the WriteLine properties and describes how they are used in the designer. These properties can be edited in property grid and some of them can be edited on Workflow Designerdesigner surface.

|Text||False||The text to write. To set the property, type a Visual Basic expression in the Text box on the WriteLine activity designer or in the property grid.|
|TextWriter||False||The TextWriter to which the WriteLine writes the Text. The default is the console.|
