WorkflowRuntime.WorkflowCreated Event

Occurs when a workflow instance has been created.

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

public event EventHandler<WorkflowEventArgs> WorkflowCreated

The workflow runtime engine raises the WorkflowCreated event after the workflow instance has been completely constructed but before activities are processed. For this event, sender will contain the WorkflowRuntime and WorkflowEventArgs will contain the WorkflowInstance associated with the event.

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.

The following code example demonstrates how you can use WorkflowRuntime functionality from a workflow host. The code associates the WorkflowCreated with an event handler, a method named OnWorkflowCreated.

This code example is part of the Custom Persistence Service SDK sample from the Program.cs file. For more information, see Custom Persistence Service.

static void Main()
    using (WorkflowRuntime workflowRuntime = new WorkflowRuntime())
            // engine will unload workflow instance when it is idle
            workflowRuntime.AddService(new FilePersistenceService(true));

            workflowRuntime.WorkflowCreated += OnWorkflowCreated;
            workflowRuntime.WorkflowCompleted += OnWorkflowCompleted;
            workflowRuntime.WorkflowIdled += OnWorkflowIdle;
            workflowRuntime.WorkflowUnloaded += OnWorkflowUnload;
            workflowRuntime.WorkflowLoaded += OnWorkflowLoad;
            workflowRuntime.WorkflowTerminated += OnWorkflowTerminated;
            workflowRuntime.ServicesExceptionNotHandled += OnExceptionNotHandled;


        catch (Exception e)
            Console.WriteLine("Exception \n\t Source: {0} \n\t Message: {1}", e.Source, e.Message);
            Console.WriteLine("Workflow runtime stopped, program exiting... \n");
