The WF team has really got it together.  I’m looking through the Rules Drive UI sample that I mentioned in another post and saw in the Form constructor the addition of a FileTraceListener – and running through the sample, saw some Rule execution information being written to the file.

I noticed no Trace code inside of the sample.  Turns out, the WF team instrumented for trace the Workflow Rules that gives you something like the following:

System.Workflow.Activities.Rules Verbose: 0 :  9/22/2006 8:02:54 PMRule Set "UIRulesScenario": Rule "HighPri" Condition dependency: "this/priComboBox/Text/" 9/22/2006 8:02:54 PM

System.Workflow.Activities.Rules Verbose: 0 :  9/22/2006 8:02:54 PMRule Set "UIRulesScenario": Rule "HighPri" THEN side-effect: "this/shipMethodComboBox/Text/" 9/22/2006 8:02:54 PM

System.Workflow.Activities.Rules Verbose: 0 :  9/22/2006 8:02:54 PMRule Set "UIRulesScenario": Rule "HighPri" THEN side-effect: "this/dateTimeRequired/Text/" 9/22/2006 8:02:54 PM

This is enabled by adding the TraceSwitch setting either through code or config as follows:

    7     <switches>

    8       <add name="System.Workflow.Activities.Rules" value="All" />

    9     </switches>

The trace switch supports the TraceLevel enum allowing you to tone down the level of tracing as needed.
