  • Hi Chittidi,

    Each pipeline is composed of stages, with each stage containing one or more components. If there are no components in a stage, a watermark with text indicates that shapes can be inserted from the Toolbox. When the first shape is inserted into a stage, the initial text disappears. A pipeline component can only be dropped at specific places on the design surface. The pipeline component can only be dropped in a stage in which it has stage affinity. A circle with a line through it appears next to the pointer where the pipeline component cannot be dropped. An arrow appears, and a portion of the design surface is highlighted where a pipeline component can be placed (MSDN How to Add a Component to a Pipeline). Are components you want to drag to a certain stage the out of the box components or custom components? For first you probably need to do a repair of BizTalk (reinstalling Biztalk Templates in Visual Studio) if you are unable to drag them to the surface and for latter you will need to examine your code (see if anything is missing i.e. atrributes).

  • You might trying to drag the component designed for different stage. Provide details about pipeline component and the stage you are trying to drag.

  • The different type of component categories are given in this article. You use these to indicate the stage where the pipeline component can be used.
