How to: Create a Workflow

This topic applies to Windows Workflow Foundation 4 (WF4).

Workflows can be constructed from built-in activities as well as from custom activities. This topics in this section step through creating a workflow that uses both built-in activities such as the Flowchart activity, and the custom activities from the previous How to: Create an Activity topic. The workflow models a number guessing game. Only one of the topics in this section is required to complete the tutorial; you should pick the style that interests you and follow that step. However, you may complete all of the topics if desired.
