IfElseActivity Class

Conditionally runs one of two or more activities of type IfElseBranchActivity. This class cannot be inherited.

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

<ToolboxBitmapAttribute(GetType(IfElseActivity), "Resources.Decision.png")> _
Public NotInheritable Class IfElseActivity _
	Inherits CompositeActivity _
	Implements IActivityEventListener(Of ActivityExecutionStatusChangedEventArgs)
Dim instance As IfElseActivity

This activity provides semantics similar to two If-ElseIf statements.

IfElseActivity contains an ordered set of IfElseBranchActivity classes and runs the first branch when the condition evaluates to true. The final branch is not required to have a condition, in which case it always evaluates to true.

A IfElseActivity can complete without having run any child activity, if no conditions are satisfied.

The following code example shows how to create a new instance of the IfElseActivity class and add two IfElseBranchActivity classes to it. This code example is part of the SequentialWorkflowWithParameters SDK Sample from the SequentialWorkflow.cs file. For more information, see Sequential Workflow With Parameters.

Me.CanModifyActivities = True 
Dim codecondition1 As System.Workflow.Activities.CodeCondition = New System.Workflow.Activities.CodeCondition
Me.ifElseActivity = New System.Workflow.Activities.IfElseActivity
Me.approveIfElseBranch = New System.Workflow.Activities.IfElseBranchActivity
Me.rejecteIfElseBranch = New System.Workflow.Activities.IfElseBranchActivity
Me.approve = New System.Workflow.Activities.CodeActivity
Me.reject = New System.Workflow.Activities.CodeActivity
' ifElseActivity 
Me.ifElseActivity.Name = "ifElseActivity"
