Attribute

Description

Sentence

Required text. Text displayed in the workflow editor that represents the workflow rule. The rule sentence can contain static text as well as text dynamically generated at run time.

Variables can be embedded into the sentence using the notation %1, %2, and so on. Each variable maps to a FieldBind element Id. Then, during workflow design, the text displayed for these variables is the Text attribute of the FieldBind element.

The following XML demonstrates how to construct a RuleDesigner element so that it can be displayed in a code-free workflow editor.
