public class TrackingWorkflowSuspendedEventArgs : EventArgs


Contains information about the reason that a workflow instance was suspended. This can come from the Suspend (string error) or the Error property that you set on the SuspendActivity activity.

Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(Inherited from Object.)

A TrackingWorkflowSuspendedEventArgs is generated by the runtime tracking infrastructure when a workflow instance is suspended. If the TrackingProfile associated with a workflow instance includes a WorkflowTrackPoint configured for a TrackingWorkflowEvent, then the workflow tracking infrastructure puts a TrackingWorkflowSuspendedEventArgs in EventArgs in the WorkflowTrackingRecord that it sends to the Tracking service.


TrackingWorkflowSuspendedEventArgs is used only by the runtime tracking service to pass information in a WorkflowTrackingRecord. The data for a WorkflowRuntime.WorkflowSuspended event is passed in a WorkflowSuspendedEventArgs.

The following code example demonstrates a method, named WriteSuspendedEventArgs, which captures a TrackingWorkflowSuspendedEventArgs. The code writes information from the method's arguments to the console, including the value of the Error property.

This code example is part of the EventArgs Tracking SDK Sample from the Program.cs file. For more information, see EventArgs Tracking Sample.

static void WriteSuspendedEventArgs(string eventDescription, TrackingWorkflowSuspendedEventArgs suspendedEventArgs, DateTime eventDataTime)
    Console.WriteLine("\nSuspended Event Arguments Read From Tracking Database:\n");
    Console.WriteLine("EventDataTime: " + eventDataTime.ToString());
    Console.WriteLine("EventDescription: " + eventDescription);
    Console.WriteLine("SuspendedEventArgs Info: " + suspendedEventArgs.Error);
