WriteLine Activity Designer

The WriteLine activity designer is used to create and configure a WriteLine activity.

The WriteLine Activity

The Writeline activity writes text to a specified TextWriter object. If no TextWriter is specified, Writeline writes the text to the console.

Using the WriteLine Activity Designer

The WriteLine activity designer can be found in the Primitives category of the Toolbox, which is accessed by clicking the Toolbox tab of the Workflow Designer (Alternatively, select Toolbar from the View menu, or CTRL+ALT+X.)

The WriteLine activity designer can be dragged from the Toolbox and dropped on to the Workflow Designer surface wherever activities are usually placed, such as inside a Sequence. This creates a WriteLine activity with a default DisplayName of WriteLine. The DisplayName can be edited in the header of the WriteLine activity designer or in the DisplayName box of the property grid.
