How do I deploy a Sharepoint 2010 Custom Workflow Activity that is only required in Visual Studio?
Posted on 2014-09-05
I am currently building a custom Email Activity (using Visual Studio 2010 | Framework 3.5) and am having issues with it displaying in the toolbox (with functionality enabled). None of the Properties are displaying.
For the moment I am not interested in presenting to SharePoint Designer. So can I Build | Deploy without an ACTIONS file?
I have no problem building the solution, but cannot deploy (I realise I may not be able to that yet because of permissions). Once I can deploy, and IF I do that with Visual Studio (deploy) will this automatically add the DLL to the GAC and update the web.config (as an authorised Type) or do I need to these steps manually?
Are there ANY steps I am missing? Do I still need to add a Features Receiver (Add | Retract)
