AuthorizedType Class

Note: This API is now obsolete.

Represents a set of types that are either allowed or disallowed in compiled workflows by the workflow compiler (depending on the value of the Authorized property). This class cannot be inherited.


Namespace:  System.Workflow.ComponentModel.Compiler
Assembly:  System.Workflow.ComponentModel (in System.Workflow.ComponentModel.dll)

[ObsoleteAttribute("The System.Workflow.* types are deprecated.  Instead, please use the new types from System.Activities.*")]
public sealed class AuthorizedType

The AuthorizedType type exposes the following members.

Public methodAuthorizedTypeInitializes a new instance of the AuthorizedType class.

Public propertyAssemblyGets or sets the name of the assembly that contains the type(s) represented by this class.
Public propertyAuthorizedGets or sets the value that indicates whether the type designated by this class is authorized to participate in a workflow compilation.
Public propertyNamespaceGets or sets the name of the namespace of the type represented in this instance.
Public propertyRegularExpressionGets the Regex associated with this instance.
Public propertyTypeNameGets or sets the name of the type being represented by this instance.

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)


This material discusses types and namespaces that are obsolete. For more information, see Deprecated Types in Windows Workflow Foundation 4.5.

During the validation phase of workflow compilation, a workflow source document is rejected if it or the companion rules file directly references any .NET Framework types not present on a list of authorized types. The list of authorized types is an XML document where each entry indicates an Assembly, a Namespace, a TypeName, and an Authorized {true|false} indicator. This class corresponds to an entry on the list. Also note that wildcard character designations are allowed, to include or exclude complete namespaces. For example, using Type=”System.*” includes all types in System, including types contained in child namespaces.

The use of a list of authorized types is controlled by the WorkflowCompiler option '/checktypes'
