Visually Tracking / Monitoring Workflow(WF) 4.0?

Feb 18, 2011

I am planning to build a custom web application in ASP.NET 4.0 using WF 4.0, the user wants ability to modify workflows himself, for this we will be using a WPF client which the user can use and we will do workflow re-hosting, lots of blogs and guidance is available for this. But I am not sure how to the meet one requirement where the user wants to see/track a visual representation (diagram/image) of the workflow, depicting what stages are over, what is the current stage etc. This needs to be done on a web page.Possibly the same workflow with icons depicting status. This is something similar to the visual available for Visio workflows in SharePoint 2010. Even AgilePoint workflows provide such a view.

Workflow Foundation 4 - How To Create A Web Based Representation Of The Workflow

Aug 12, 2010

The client wants to see a graphical representation of the workflow. In addition (let's say it is a workflow for processing orders), the client wants to see at what point in the workflow any given order is, indicated on the graphical workflow representation by a highlighted node or some visual queue.

All of this must be available via a web interface.

Was hoping somebody had some bright ideas for how to achieve this without writing extensive custom controls.

Does Workflow Foundation 4 offer anything itself that would assist toward this end?

Identify Whether A Browser/reader Is Being Used By Someone Who Is Visually Impaired?

May 20, 2010

I have to provide a 508-compliant version of a page for the visually impaired and it isn't practical to just modify the page. Thus, I have created a new "reader-compatible" version of the page for the handicapped. The question is how I can tell if someone is using a reader rather than a standard browser? Is there a "header" or "useragent" value typically used by these non-standard browsers that I can look for?

Javascript - Visually Format Remote Server XML Query Response?

Feb 9, 2011

I'll preface this by stating I am a rank amateur when it comes to web dev.

I have a web appliance that provides XML data when issued a query string such as:


I created a simple form that allows users to modify values of this query and have the appropriate XML returned. Here is that form:

<form id= "report" action="" name="report">
Username: <input name="username"><br />
Password: <input type="password" name="password"><br />
<input type="hidden" name="generate_report" value="SupportSession">
Start Date: <input name="start_date">
<input type="hidden" name="duration" value="0">
<input type="hidden" name="limit" value="all">
<input type="submit" value="Show Report">

What I have not been able to accomplish is formatting that XML response so it looks pretty.

I have created an XSLT that formats the XML nicely and have used javascript to transform the XML using the XSLT like this:

function loadXMLDoc(dname)
if (window.XMLHttpRequest)
xhttp=new XMLHttpRequest();
xhttp=new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");
return xhttp.responseXML;
function displayResult()
// code for IE
if (window.ActiveXObject)
// code for Mozilla, Firefox, Opera, etc.
else if (document.implementation && document.implementation.createDocument)
xsltProcessor=new XSLTProcessor();
resultDocument = xsltProcessor.transformToFragment(xml,document);

Which works locally but I run up against the cross domain security problem as the web appliance is hardened and I am not able to place any code on it.

I have been searching this site and the web for a couple days looking for a method to accomplish this using other means [asp?] and have been largely unsuccessful. The main reason this is so is that I don't know asp so I'm not sure how to attack it.

I think creating the query string in a form, then loading the resulting xml response from the web appliance to a string and applying the XSLT that resides on the server to it might be an option but haven't been able to make it work; again because I'm not really sure what I'm doing.

Here is my XSLT:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="">
<xsl:template match="/">
<div class="contentBox"> -->


Further information:

I found a way in asp to retrieve remote xml that works for URL's like but doesnt work for my URL. Maybe because it is a query? I've looked at way to encode/encapsulate my URL but haven't found anything that works.

Health Monitoring And The Event Log?

May 31, 2010

I've set up the health monitoring system to output to the event log. Everything is working fine, though I'm wondering if there is a way to:

A) Define the event source as my application name (it currently appears as ASP.NET 2.0.50727.0)

B) Adjust the level of severity. Currently, all events are recorded as a "Warning", and it would be nice to tag some as "Error".

Looking For Good Website Monitoring Tool

I looked at Google's, but my boss shot it down because it involves adding a script to every page you want to track. I keep searching the web, but the stuff I am finding seems to be crap or not work all together. This is mainly for internal sites, not external. Seems liek a lot of the stuff I am finding want to give me remote statistics to a publically available site.

Implement A Realtime Monitoring System?

Oct 21, 2010

I have either an ASP.NET displaying my results, or a Silverlight client. And I'd like to show the current status of my server, or embedded device. (pretend the device reads temperature and humidity stats)

How should I send the status information from my device to the front end? Should I poll the device and save the results to SQL, Azure Table, or the like? (Azure is a technology that fits with this project for other reasons. That's why I mention it) Or should I create a WCF service that polls the device directly and returns the current status.

Monitoring Traffic To Cassini On Localhost?

Jul 22, 2010

I'm experiencing some really odd timeout issues when running a ASP.NET 2.0 project on Cassini on localhost, and I don't have enough data to get a clue of what's going on.

Is there a way to monitor localhost traffic to Cassini, either using some specific development tool or a general-purpose monitoring app such as fiddler?

Just to pre-empt some answers I'm already aware of:

Normally I can use the well-known dot-hack for using fiddler to monitor localhost traffic, but with Cassini I get the following error message in the browser:

[Fiddler] Connection to localhost. failed. Exception Text: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it ::1:3213

Fiddler also listens to localhost on http://ipv4.fiddler:port, and I can intercept the traffic. But when I do this the timeout issues don't occur!

Edit: Oops. This question had already been asked... Twice.. Didn't come up on search or . The solution found in the second thread is to use the dot-hack with ip-address ( instead of "localhost". This question may be closed.

.net Mvc - Reusing Pages/controllers In Workflow

May 3, 2010

1) the user signs up for the first time. They see 3 different screens, their basic user information, their credit card, and some additional profile information. They complete these 3 steps in a wizard like fashion, where each time they hit "submit" they leave the current screen and move on to the next.2) the user already is signed up. He has links in the navigation to these 3 seperate pages. He can update them in any order. When he hits save, he doesn't leave the page he's on, it just shows something at the top that says "Credit Card Info saved..." or whatever. Possibly using ajax or maybe a full page refresh.I would like to reuse the code not only the view but also in the controller for these 3 screens between the two workflows, but without a ton of if...then logic to determine where to go next depending on whether its a first signup in the wizard or updating individual parts of a profile.
