Namespace:  System.Workflow.Runtime.Configuration
Assembly:  System.Workflow.Runtime (in System.Workflow.Runtime.dll)

public class WorkflowRuntimeSection : ConfigurationSection

WorkflowRuntimeSection contains settings specified by a <section> of type WorkflowRuntimeSection in a configuration file. The settings specified in a WorkflowRuntimeSection are used to initialize the workflow runtime engine. Your application can call the WorkflowRuntime.WorkflowRuntime(String) constructor in order to initialize the workflow runtime engine from the appropriately named section of the configuration file.

If your application does not use configuration files, but you still want to initialize the workflow runtime engine from a WorkflowRuntimeSection you can configure a WorkflowRuntimeSection in your application and call the WorkflowRuntime.WorkflowRuntime(WorkflowRuntimeSection) constructor. For example, your application might store configuration parameters in a database, or it might operate in a trusted environment where configuration files are not used
