The InvokeWorkflowActivity first calls the Invoking code-beside method, if one is specified. Typically, this method is used to set up incoming parameters for the workflow instance to be invoked.

InvokeWorkflowActivity then creates and invokes a workflow instance of the specified type, passing the parameters that are provided. As soon as the workflow is invoked, the InvokeWorkflowActivity finishes immediately.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
