member this.Idle : Action<System.Activities.WorkflowApplicationIdleEventArgs> with get, set
Public Property Idle As Action(Of WorkflowApplicationIdleEventArgs)

Property Value


An action that executes when a workflow instance becomes idle.


The following code example inspects the WorkflowApplicationIdleEventArgs passed into the Idle handler of a WorkflowApplication instance. In this example the workflow going idle has one Bookmark with a name of EnterGuess, owned by an activity named ReadInt. This code example is based off of How to: Run a Workflow, which is part of the Getting Started Tutorial [.NET Framework 4.5]. If the Idle handler in that step is modified to contain the code from this example, the following output is displayed.

BookmarkName: EnterGuess - OwnerDisplayName: ReadInt  
wfApp.Idle = delegate(WorkflowApplicationIdleEventArgs e)
    foreach (BookmarkInfo info in e.Bookmarks)
        Console.WriteLine("BookmarkName: {0} - OwnerDisplayName: {1}",
            info.BookmarkName, info.OwnerDisplayName);
