Rotate FlowDecision control in designer view RRS feed

  • Question

  • I know this sounds like a dumb question..but is it possible to rotate the FlowDecision control in the designer view so it becomes easier to wire it up with all other boxes..

    By default, the 'False' handle is on the right hand side and 'True' on the left and  the wirings are making the workflow look just as messy as any never-cleaned backyard gardens...

    Also, on a side note, is it possible to physically move the position of multiple controls at the same time..I can drag them one by one but not ideal if there are dozens of boxes needs repositioning..


    Life is simple.

    ->"By default, the 'False' handle is on the right hand side and 'True' on the left and the wirings are making the workflow look just as messy as any never-cleaned backyard gardens..."

    Actually, you can change the "condition" property to achieve the same effect. for example, you can add a "Not" before the condition expression, then, True turns to be False, vice versa.

    ->"Also, on a side note, is it possible to physically move the position of multiple controls at the same time..I can drag them one by one but not ideal if there are dozens of boxes needs repositioning.."

    WF dev team are working on it. I saw such a feature some time ago, there are still many things need be fixed and tuned, I hope we can have it in WF4 version next.
