Rehosting the Workflow Designer

The Windows Workflow Designer can be rehosted in environments outside of Visual Studio 2012 for the purposes of creating, modifying, and monitoring workflows.

The WorkflowDesigner type is a wrapper of the canvas, property grid, and other elements, and exposes a basic programming model to handle the majority of designer rehosting scenarios. Hosting the WorkflowDesigner inside a Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) application is a common rehosting scenario for Workflow Designer.
