WorkflowRuntimeService.State Property

Gets the state of the WorkflowRuntimeService.

Namespace:  System.Workflow.Runtime.Hosting
Assembly:  System.Workflow.Runtime (in System.Workflow.Runtime.dll)

protected WorkflowRuntimeServiceState State { get; }

The WorkflowRuntimeService class implements two-phase mechanisms for both starting and stopping a workflow runtime engine service. The first phase of the start mechanism begins when the workflow runtime engine calls the implementation of the Start method for the service. This method should call the base implementation of Start, which sets State to Starting. The second phase occurs after the workflow runtime engine starts all of its workflow runtime engine services when it raises the Started event. The WorkflowRuntimeService internally manages a subscription to this event and its handler will set State to Started.

The two-phase mechanism for stopping a workflow runtime engine service begins when the workflow runtime engine calls the implementation of the Stop method for the service. This method should call the base implementation of Stop, which sets State to Stopping. After it has stopped all of its workflow runtime engine services, the workflow runtime engine raises the Stopped event. The WorkflowRuntimeService internally manages a subscription to this event and its handler will set State to Stopped.
