Exercise 2: Integrate the Workflow Designer
In this exercise, you will integrate the Windows Workflow Foundation Designer into the Windows Form application you created in the previous exercise. The Windows Form uses a Panel control as the host for the Workflow Designer. In Task 1: Create the Workflow Designer Loader, you create a class derived from the WorkflowDesignerLoader class. When subclassed, the WorkflowDesignerLoader class allows you to implement custom loading and unloading logic. For instance, a workflow definition can be stored on the local file system in a compressed or uncompressed format, within a database or located at a location on a shared network.
In Task 2: Incorporate the Workflow Designer into the Windows Form, you will connect the WorkflowDesignerLoader class to the Windows Form application in order to make the Windows Workflow Designer visible. In Task 3: Create the WorkflowMenuCommandService, you will learn how to use the MenuCommandService to implement common Windows Workflow Designer context menu commands.
