This chapter discusses a few advanced topics that are in some ways related. First, the chapter covers the concept of dynamic update. Dynamic update enables you to modify the behavior of a workflow instance after it has started. The other topic is designer re-hosting, which enables you to include the rich Visual Studio workflow views in your own custom applications.
Although each topic has its own distinct functionality in Windows Workflow Foundation, you can use them together to provide a great deal of functionality in end-user applications.
This chapter covers the following topics:
Dynamic update concepts and drivers
Dynamic update infrastructure
The workflow designer
Hosting the designer in custom applications
Applying dynamic update and designer re-hosting
