PageFlow reborn

Many of you noticed that WCSF 2.0 did not ship with PageFlow. Early during the development of WCSF 2.0, we decided to break out the PageFlow application block and recipes into a separately downloadable package. There were several reasons foremost of which was that we wanted to make it easier to use Pageflow on it’s own without having to install WCSF. A secondary reason was that we had requests from the community around extending their wanting to extend PageFlow.

Unfortunately, due to resource constraints, we were not able to complete the breakout of PageFlow before we shipped. However, as I mentioned, we have been completing this work out-of-band.  We’re now nearing completion of the source and will be uploading it shortly. The docs will still need more work and we’ll be shipping them some time after the source ships.

What’s in the new PageFlow?

  • New stand alone PageFlow guidance package that works on Visual Studio 2008! Does not require WCSF.
  • New XmlPageFlowProvider that does not depend on Windows Workflow Foundation
  • Migrated PageFlowWithShoppingCart Quickstarts to Visual Studio 2008
  • Updated Dependencies to GAT/GAX 1.4

Coming soon to WCSF Contrib!

    Hi Glenn, Is PageFlow possible in WPF?

    Hi Glenn,

    The WCSF page you linked to above indicates that the PageFlow framework is capable of composition (Page Flow Composition, under Scenarios and Requirements). Are there any examples or documentation about how such composition is supposed to work? I was wondering if you might be able to point me in the right direction!

    Sounds interesting, but you haven’t actually mentioned what PageFlow is in the first place (for those of us not familiar with it!)

    I will google… :-)
