AsyncCodeActivity.BeginExecute Method

When implemented in a derived class and using the specified execution context, callback method, and user state, enqueues an asynchronous activity in a run-time workflow.

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

abstract BeginExecute : 
        context:AsyncCodeActivityContext * 
        callback:AsyncCallback * 
        state:Object -> IAsyncResult 


Type: System.Activities.AsyncCodeActivityContext
Information that defines the execution environment for the AsyncCodeActivity.
Type: System.AsyncCallback
The method to be called after the asynchronous activity and completion notification have occurred.
Type: System.Object
An object that saves variable information for an instance of an asynchronous activity.

Return Value

Type: System.IAsyncResult
The object that saves variable information for an instance of an asynchronous activity.

The following example shows how to override the BeginExecute(AsyncCodeActivityContext, AsyncCallback, Object) method in a custom activity.

protected override IAsyncResult BeginExecute(AsyncCodeActivityContext context, AsyncCallback callback, object state)
    string tempFileName = Path.GetTempFileName();
    Console.WriteLine("Writing to file: " + tempFileName);

    FileStream file = File.Open(tempFileName, FileMode.Create);

    context.UserState = file;

    byte[] bytes = UnicodeEncoding.Unicode.GetBytes("123456789");
    return file.BeginWrite(bytes, 0, bytes.Length, callback, state);
