State Machine Workflow

P: 3
Hi all,

I have an application that hosts a state machine workflow runtime.

Once the workflow starts running, I want it to send a message to the hosting application each time it finishes a task (but still doesn't complete running).
The application will catch that message, just as it catches the events defined on the workflow runtime (as "WorkflowCompleted" or "WorkflowTerminated"), and will let the WF continue running.

Is there a way to do that?

You could create a custom event and fire it when you finish a task.
Then the application can attach a handler to it and listen for that event

I thought about this solution too, but I had some problems with it:

In order to add a new event to the WorkflowRuntime class I had to inherit it. Then I added a new event handler in the application. The problem occured when I wanted to raise the event on the workflow itself. I didn't know how to get the current WorkflowRuntime instance. I tried to send it as a parameter from the application, but had some problems with it, so I preferred to ask if anyone knows about an easier way to do that.

If there isn't any built-in solution, I'll continue to try this one.

I am unfamiliar with these object? What is the full name of the object(s) you are using?
i.e. if your are using a socket, System.Net.Sockets.Socket
