Property Value

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-side code because the host only has access to a copy of the workflow definition, never to the live instance tree.

For information on determining the previous state from the host side, see the StateHistory property of the StateMachineWorkflowInstance class.
