	IActivityEventListener<QueueEventArgs> eventListener


Type: System.Workflow.ComponentModel.IActivityEventListener<QueueEventArgs>

A subscriber for QueueEventArgs that implements the IActivityEventListener<T> interface.


eventListener is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

The following code example demonstrates how you can create a WorkflowQueue by calling the WorkflowQueuingService.GetWorkflowQueue method. It also uses the RegisterForQueueItemAvailable to register the specified listener.

This code example is part of the File Watcher Activity SDK Sample from the FileSystemEvent.cs file. For more information, see File System Watcher Activity.

private Boolean DoSubscribe(ActivityExecutionContext context, IActivityEventListener<QueueEventArgs> listener)
    WorkflowQueue queue = CreateQueue(context);

    FileWatcherService fileService = context.GetService<FileWatcherService>();
    this.subscriptionId = fileService.RegisterListener(this.QueueName, this.Path, this.Filter, this.NotifyFilter, this.IncludeSubdirectories);
    return (subscriptionId != Guid.Empty);
