What is Activity Tree Inspection. Why and in which scenarios it is used. RRS feed


  • Most people will never use this.  However if you wanted to disallow a certain kind of activity you could check the activity tree to see if it was present.

    The article does state the purpose - perhaps it wasn't clear?

    Activity tree inspection is used by workflow application authors to inspect the workflows hosted by the application. By using WorkflowInspectionServices, workflows can be searched for specific child activities, individual activities and their properties can be enumerated, and runtime metadata of the activities can be cached at a specific time. This topic provides an overview of WorkflowInspectionServices and how to use it to inspect an activity tree.
