Represents a configuration element that specifies settings for an instance of WorkflowRuntime for hosting workflow-based Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) services.

Namespace:  System.ServiceModel.Configuration
Assembly:  System.WorkflowServices (in System.WorkflowServices.dll)

public ref class WorkflowRuntimeElement : public BehaviorExtensionElement

To enable or disable one of the ServiceDebugElement features using a configuration file, you must:

  1. Add a behavior configuration attribute to the service element of your WCF service. Endpoint behaviors are configured on endpoint elements; service behaviors are configured on service elements.

  2. Create a serviceBehaviors section, and add a behavior element with the name that corresponds to the behaviorConfiguration attribute value from step 1.

  3. Add a serviceDebug element to the behavior element from step 2, and enable or disable the various properties as needed.
