HandleExternalEventActivity.OnInvoked Method (EventArgs)


The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on docs.microsoft.com to see the new experience.

Called just after the external event is received to allow derived classes to process the inbound EventArgs before the activity closes.

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

protected virtual void OnInvoked(
	EventArgs e


Type: System.EventArgs

The EventArgs that are received from the external event that was just received.

The most common use of the OnInvoked method in derived classes is to extract members from the received EventArgs to set the values of the derived-classed activity's public properties.

The following example shows an implementation of the OnInvoked method. This example is from the Correlated Local Service SDK sample, from the TaskCompleted.cs file. For more information, seeCorrelated Local Service Sample.

private WorkflowQueue CreateQueue(ActivityExecutionContext context)
    WorkflowQueuingService qService = context.GetService<WorkflowQueuingService>();

    if (!qService.Exists(this.QueueName))
        qService.CreateWorkflowQueue(this.QueueName, true);

    return qService.GetWorkflowQueue(this.QueueName);
