public static SPWorkflowActivationProperties workflowProperties = new SPWorkflowActivationProperties(); static XmlSerializer serializer = new XmlSerializer(typeof(AssociationParameters)); static XmlTextReader reader = new XmlTextReader(new System.IO.StringReader(workflowProperties.InitiationData)); AssociationParameters initform = (AssociationParameters)serializer.Deserialize(reader); Here at Stringreader it gives Excepti – akj Mar 27 '12 at 9:09
workflowProperties.InitiationData is null for you. Do initiation form appear, when you start workflow on item? Do you specify InstantiationUrl in elements.xml for workflow? When you associate your workflow to a list, checkbox "Start this workflow when a new item is created." should be unchecked. I've just verified my project with initiation form - I changed AssociationUrl to InstantiationUrl="_layouts/IniWrkflIP.aspx", replaced AssociationFormURN with InstantiationFormURN, added workflowProperties.InitiationData (instead of AssociationData) in code and all work fine. – Kai Mar 27 '12 at 9:40
