Project Overview

The tooling provides rapid workflow development for the Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 platform, comparable to the InfoPath based design methodology used with SharePoint Server. In the toolset you will find all the components that you need to bring your workflows to the next level. Use the Visual Studio templates to easily create new workflow forms. Derive from the base classes to focus on the business at hand without the need to write SharePoint specific infrastructure, or make your workflow forms designable by using the hosted form infrastructure. As a bonus the first building blocks for bulk-task operations is also provided.

You can use the tools in two ways. Either you create a full form (ASPX page) deriving from our base classes, or you use the hosted form control approach, which provides greater ease and flexibility. When using the hosted controls the ASPX page is provided by the tooling.
