Activity.CacheMetadata Method

Creates and validates a description of the activity’s arguments, variables, child activities, and activity delegates.

Namespace:  System.Activities
Assembly:  System.Activities (in System.Activities.dll)

abstract CacheMetadata : 
        metadata:ActivityMetadata -> unit 
override CacheMetadata : 
        metadata:ActivityMetadata -> unit 

Parameters

metadata
Type: System.Activities.ActivityMetadata
The activity’s metadata that encapsulates the activity’s arguments, variables, child activities, and activity delegates.

The workflow runtime uses the default implementation of CacheMetadata(ActivityMetadata) to ensure correct construction of a workflow as well as to manage runtime relationships and lifetime rules. The default implementation of CacheMetadata(ActivityMetadata) examines the public properties of the activity type using the type’s TypeDescriptor. These public members are of type Argument, Variable, [T:System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable<T:System.Activities.Variable>], Activity, [T:System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable<T:System.Activities.Activity>], or ActivityDelegate. You can override this method to customize the building of the activity’s run-time description and to provide custom validation logic.
