how do i find current stage?

Jul 1, 2008 at 3:54 PM
Dean was helpful in pointing out to me that you can find a record in the USER_EVENT table with a key of StateChange, in order to get current stage of my state machine workflow.  But, i'm not seeing user_event data at all.  Anyone know how i can get this data?

Thanks Dean, and all.

You can get the current state of your state machine with:

public string CurrentState(string workflowGuid) {
   StateMachineWorkflowInstance instance;
   instance = new StateMachineWorkflowInstance(yourworkflowRuntime, new Guid(workflowGuid));
   return instance.CurrentStateName

Don't know if querying directly the persistence/tracking tables you can obtain that information.

Hope this help and sorry for my poor English.

I believe that Steve requires this information after the event, as a result he'd have to use GetStateHistory on StateMachineWorkflowInstance. Unfortunately that has a dependency on SqlTrackingService (and SqlTrackingQuery). We'll have our own version in the next release...

Sorry for bringing this thread back... I'm working with some samples from different books to query the tracking service (in the case of the books, its SQLTrackingService). I´ve been trying to port them over to WFtools tracking with no success...Is there any minimal example I can use as a basis?

This is what I'm currently doing:

AdoTrackingQueryManager queryManager= new AdoTrackingQueryManager(cssConnection);
TrackingWorkflowInstance instance;
queryManager.TryGetWorkflow(instanceID, out instance);

And I get a NotSupportedException on OracleTrackingNameResolver.
Searching around found there are GetWorkflow and GetInvokedWorkflow functions on the package, but their body is null.
I´m not sure something is missconfigured or I´m not doing something right? Is this actually implemented?
