Custom extensions RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was wondering if anybody could shed some light on the custom extension ? I tried to get my head around but in vein.


    I'm new to workflows and hopefully not sounding stupid.

  • Custom Extension improves the way for communication between the host and workflow, the workflow and its child activities and between child activities.

    if you look at the code sample here: http://www.dotnetfunda.com/articles/article1091-workflow-foundation-40-extension-.aspx

    by using custom extension, it's easy for you to add some extension when you start you workflow in your host, and your custom activities can access the data in the extension easily. also inside a custom activity, you can also easily add data into extension, and then the chils activity can use it.

    while using InArgument is hard to achieve that in a easy way
