StateMachineWorkflowActivity.PreviousStateName Property


Gets the name of the previously executed StateActivity.

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

public string PreviousStateName { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.String

The name of the previous StateActivity.

The PreviousStateName property only returns the name of the previous state when accessed from within the workflow, for example, from a code handler in a CodeActivity. The property does not work from host code because the host only has access to a copy of the workflow definition, never to the live instance tree.

For more information about how to determine the previous state from the host, see the StateHistory property of the StateMachineWorkflowInstance class.
