WorkflowApplication.BeginPersist Method (TimeSpan, AsyncCallback, Object)
Persists a workflow instance to an instance store asynchronously using the specified time-out interval, callback method, and user-provided state.
Assembly: System.Activities (in System.Activities.dll)
public IAsyncResult BeginPersist( TimeSpan timeout, AsyncCallback callback, object state )
The interval in which the persist operation must complete before the operation is canceled and a TimeoutException is thrown.
The method to be called when the persist operation has completed.
An optional application-specific object that contains information about the asynchronous operation.
Return ValueType: System.IAsyncResult
A reference to the asynchronous persist operation.
To determine whether the persist operation was successful, call EndPersist. EndPersist can be called from inside or outside of the method referenced in the callback parameter. If EndPersist is called before the persist operation completes, it blocks until the persist operation completes. If the persist operation does not complete within the specified time-out interval, a TimeoutException is thrown from EndPersist.
If the workflow instance was previously loaded from persistence, then the same InstanceStore used to load the workflow is used for persistence. If the workflow was created and has not yet been persisted, then an InstanceStore must be configured before calling this method or else an InvalidOperationException is thrown when this method is called.
