SuspendActivity Class

Suspends the running workflow instance when executed. This class cannot be inherited.

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

[ToolboxBitmapAttribute(typeof(SuspendActivity), "Resources.Suspend.png")]
public sealed class SuspendActivity : Activity

SuspendActivity causes a running workflow instance to pause in running, perhaps to reflect an error condition that requires attention beyond the scope of the workflow. All the state information for the workflow instance is saved, and will be reinstated when the administrator resumes the workflow instance.

You cannot include a SuspendActivity inside an atomic transaction.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
