How to set an overload group on arguments in the workflow designer?

    Question

  • Hi,

    I'm wondering how to set an overload group (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee358733.aspx) to arguments using the workflow designer. If I click on an argument in the Arguments tab in Visual Studio, the properties window shows a checkbox for the Required attribute, but no property for the OverloadGroup.

    Is there a way to use overload groups in the designer?

    Thanks in advance,
    Jochen.

  • Unfortunately decorating arguments with OverloadGroups is not supported in the WF designer in VS2010 (OverloadGroups are only available for activities authored in code in VS2010)

  • Hi,

    I don't think there is a way, I will check to make sure but I don't think there is, I'll report back as soon as i get either a confirmation or a method for doing that.

  • Thanks for your response, Leon.

    It would be very nice to see this feature in a future release. OverloadGroups are quite helpful for our custom activity development. But when it comes to authoring compensable activities out of custom code-based activities in the designer, there is no way to promote the OverloadGroups of the contained activities to the outside world.
