WorkflowView.SaveViewState Method (Stream)


Saves the view-state to a binary stream.

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

public void SaveViewState(
	Stream viewState


Type: System.IO.Stream

A BinaryReader used to store the view state.

View state is the accumulation of the values of the properties and child controls of a view. Property values are persisted to the stream after saving and can be restored using the LoadViewState method.

The following example demonstrates saving the view state for a WorkflowView object by creating a FileStream object using the FileMode.Create flag and passing it to the SaveViewState method. To load this view state at a later time, see LoadViewState.

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