    4. Capture an image of the workflow definition
    5. Save the image to a file
    6. Close the workflow designer

  • Hi,

    Since the function depends on drawing, I afraid you can't do it without loading workflow to WPF. However, you can open a window in your assembly, load the workflow designer and draw the workflow, then save it to an image, close the window.
