Page Flow Composition

The Page Flow Application Block description (at http://www.codeplex.com/websf/Wiki/View.aspx?title=Page%20Flow%20Application%20Block) indicates under "Scenarios and Requirements" that the block supports Page Flow Composition.

That's great, but I cannot find any guidance or examples of how to take advantage of this feature. Could someone please point me in the direction where I can find more information about how to utilize composition in my pageflows? An example application would be ideal.

Thanks in advance for anyone's help!

Hi Bill,

I appreciate your response. However, I must be missing something. Your links all point to resources associated with PageFlow, but here I am looking to perform PageFlow Composition as defined in the application block description:

http://www.codeplex.com/websf/Wiki/View.aspx?title=Page%20Flow%20Application%20Block
Page flow composition. Using page flow, you can reuse entire presentation processes. You can compose larger page flows from other page flows. For example, a page flow for the checkout process of an e-commerce site invokes another page flow for credit card payment by passing data to that page flow (and receiving data back from the page flow when it completes).


Do these links address this question in perhaps a way I am not comprehending? The first and last links your provided would appear to be off-topic, and the second contains links to the PageFlow recipes (which to my recollection do not address pageflow composition).

Thanks for your assistance!

Thanks for the feedback :) I'm exercising the links for a site I am working on (infant stages) - your feedback suggest I have to break PageFlow down further - especially if this message thread get's answered ;).

I basically scanned messages going back quite a while and logically grouped them so that in the future when I, or someone else, needs them their search can be more logically grouped. I recalled pulling some PageFlow links so thought they might help - not familiar with Page flow composition....
