comment How do I access a Property argument in a SharePoint 2013 Workflow?
Happy to help! I spent a lot of time building workflow training content for MSFT in the SharePoint 2013 betas as well for my three courses on Pluralsight (pluralsight.com/training/Authors/Details/andrew-connell) and speak on it at conferences a good bit (aside from the real world stuff I do), so if there's something that I haven't seen before, I'm certainly curious.

comment Invoking an ActivityAction in a SharePoint workflow
Why couldn't you use it? If you have the activity deployed both to the Workflow Manager farm as well as on your developer machine, it should work. SharePoint doesn't know what's included on the WM farm, just like any app that relies on something being previously deployed to the server. If it didn't work with it, it would be news to me.

I'll be 100% honest: I have never used PROPERTY or had a need to, so I haven't looked at it much. :-)

comment Invoking an ActivityAction in a SharePoint workflow
This will not answer your question, just heads up... The IF activity is a core Workflow Foundation (WF) thing... not a Workflow Manager activity / SharePoint activity. If you are looking to create something similar to that, I'd remove SharePoint from the equation to simplify things. Addressing the "support" part of your question, SharePoint won't care about it. SharePoint 2013 doesn't do workflow anymore, it outsources it 100% to Workflow Manager. It has no concept of what activities are installed or not in WM.

I don't think you can do what you're demonstrating in the initial question. Your custom activity has to return a value which must be bound to something like a BOOLEAN variable. You can't just throw that in the CONDITION part of the IF because activities don't have a single output, they have a name-value collection of IN/OUT arguments. So create an OUT argument on your activity that has the BOOL value result from your custom activity and THEN you could then use that in your IF condition. I'll comment on your other question...

Sorry, now I see what you're asking. Are you trying to pass a value into the workflow when it starts? If so, create it as an argument, not a property.

Thanks Ward! I'd certainly give two thumbs up to using Breeze & AngularJS for building SPA's for SharePoint.
