Activity.Name Property

Gets or sets the name of this instance. This name must conform to the variable naming convention of the programming language that is being used in the Workflow project.

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

[BrowsableAttribute(true)]
public string Name { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
The name of this instance.

Default value for this is the empty string.

This property is a meta property, which means it cannot be changed at runtime. Meta properties do not change after a property instance is created at runtime, so the property must be set to a literal value at design time.

The following code shows how to create activities and add them as children to a composite activity and set the value for Name.

This code example is part of the Throw SDK sample and is from the ThrowWorkFlow.cs file. For more information, see Throw Sample.

this.CanModifyActivities = true;
System.Workflow.ComponentModel.ActivityBind activitybind1 = new System.Workflow.ComponentModel.ActivityBind();
this.throwActivity1 = new System.Workflow.ComponentModel.ThrowActivity();
activitybind1.Name = "ThrowWorkflow";
activitybind1.Path = "ThrownException";
//  
// throwActivity1 
//  
this.throwActivity1.Name = "throwActivity1";
this.throwActivity1.SetBinding(System.Workflow.ComponentModel.ThrowActivity.FaultProperty, ((System.Workflow.ComponentModel.ActivityBind)(activitybind1)));
//  
// ThrowWorkflow 
//  
this.Activities.Add(this.throwActivity1);
this.Name = "ThrowWorkflow";
this.CanModifyActivities = false;
