Activity Views (Legacy)
Many of the activities provided by Windows Workflow Foundation (WF), from which workflows are composed, have several design views available in the legacy Windows Workflow Designer. When you drag an activity designer from the Toolbox onto the design surface, and thereafter whenever you select the activity, you can switch between the different design views by using either the Workflow menu or by right-clicking the selected activity. Also, when you move the pointer over the name of a selected activity, a drop-down set of tabs appears that you can use to switch between the different views.
Every activity has at least one view; this is the default view shown when you drag an activity designer from the Toolbox onto the design surface. This activity default view is available as the View [activity type] option on the menus and tab, for example, View Parallel. Most of the activities have additional views and different activities can have different views. For example, the TransactionScopeActivity activity has the compensation view and the EventHandlingScopeActivity activity has an events view. Many of the activities that come with Windows Workflow Foundation have View Cancel Handler and View Faults design views to view the CancellationHandlerActivity and a FaultHandlersActivity associated with them.
The following table lists the name and description of each view.
