WorkflowQueuingService Class

Provides the services for management of WorkflowQueue objects.

Namespace: System.Workflow.Runtime
Assembly: System.Workflow.Runtime (in system.workflow.runtime.dll)

public class WorkflowQueuingService

Not applicable.

WorkflowQueuingService provides methods that you can use to manage the workflow queues associated with a workflow instance.

The following code example demonstrates a method, named CreateQueue, that initializes a WorkflowQueuingService object by calling the ActivityExecutionContext.GetService method. The code then uses the Exists method to determine if a WorkflowQueue with a specified name exists. If it does not exist, the code calls the CreateWorkflowQueue method; if it does the code calls the GetWorkflowQueue method.

This code example is part of the File Watcher Activity SDK Sample from the FileSystemEvent.cs file. For more information, see File System Watcher Activity.

private WorkflowQueue CreateQueue(ActivityExecutionContext context)
{
    Console.WriteLine("CreateQueue");
    WorkflowQueuingService qService = context.GetService<WorkflowQueuingService>();

    if (!qService.Exists(this.QueueName))
    {
        qService.CreateWorkflowQueue(this.QueueName, true);
    }

    return qService.GetWorkflowQueue(this.QueueName);
}
