RuleSetDialog Class

This dialog is normally used by PolicyActivity to edit rule sets. However, if you want to use a rule set outside of this activity (for example, edit a rule set for use outside of a workflow), you can use this dialog to perform the editing of the rule set.

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

public class RuleSetDialog : Form

To use the dialog box, create an instance and show the dialog. If OK is selected, the property RuleSet contains the RuleSet modified by the user.

To create a RuleSet where the "this" activity is a class of your choosing, and execute the RuleSet if OK is pressed, you could use:

    RuleSet ruleSet = null;        // no rule set to start with
    using (RuleSetDialog dialog = new RuleSetDialog(typeof(TestClass), null, ruleSet))
        if (dialog.ShowDialog() == System.Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK)
            ruleSet = dialog.RuleSet;
            RuleValidation validation = new RuleValidation(typeof(TestClass), null);
            RuleEngine engine = new RuleEngine(ruleSet, validation);
            TestClass testObject = new TestClass();
