Serialization Overview

Workflows, activities, and rules can be serialized and deserialized. This enables you to persist them, use them in workflow markup files, and view their properties, fields, and events in a workflow designer.

Windows Workflow Foundation provides default serialization capabilities for standard activities, or you can create your own for custom activities. For example, with a custom activity serializer, you can decide which members are serialized and how they are serialized. This determines if those members are visible or hidden in a workflow designer.

For more information about serialization, see How to: Serialize Workflows and Serializing Custom Activities.
