  NameDescription
Protected methodAbortWhen implemented in a derived class, takes actions in response to the activity being aborted. (Inherited from NativeActivity.)
Public methodStatic memberAddValidationErrorAdds a validation error to a list of run-time validation errors that are attached to the execution context.
Protected methodCacheMetadata(ActivityMetadata)Not implemented. Use the CacheMetadata(NativeActivityMetadata) method instead. (Inherited from NativeActivity.)
Protected methodCacheMetadata(NativeActivityMetadata)Creates a NativeActivityMetadata object that contains runtime arguments for the workflow validation process. (Overrides NativeActivity::CacheMetadata(NativeActivityMetadata).)
Protected methodCancelWhen implemented in a derived class, runs logic to cause graceful early completion of the activity. (Inherited from NativeActivity.)
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodExecuteInvokes the process that validates a workflow element. (Overrides NativeActivity::Execute(NativeActivityContext).)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodOnExecuteWhen implemented by a derived class, validates the specified object using the specified native activity and validation contexts.
