WorkflowView.LoadViewState Method

Restores view-state information from a binary stream.

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

public void LoadViewState(
	Stream viewState


Type: System.IO.Stream

A BinaryReader used to restore the view state.

LoadViewState restores view-state information previously saved by calling the SaveViewState method.

Override this method when you need to customize how a custom designer restores its view-state.

The following example demonstrates how to load the view state for a WorkflowView object by creating a FileStream object with the FileMode.Open flag and passing it to the LoadViewState method. The view state file was created using the SaveViewState method.

public void LoadViewState()
    using (FileStream fs = new FileStream(@"viewstate.bin", FileMode.Open))
