You can use runtime URLs to open an existing workflow, start a new workflow, and control some UI elements, such as show/hide the left-panel tree.
To perform these procedures, you call the Runtime.aspx page with several parameters.
As long as the client does not have special IIS configurations, the runtime URL should follow this following format.
[ServerNameAndPort] is the IP/DNS name of the server, with the port, for example: 184.108.40.206:8080.
|workflowInstanceId=[int]||Open a specific workflow instance ID.|
|workflowid=[Guid]||Start a new instance for this workflow ID.|
|WorkflowSpaceId=[Guid]||Start a new workflow instance for the workflow space, using the active version.|
NOTE: It is acceptable to use workflowid, but the best practice (unless there are specific requirements), is to use WorkflowSpaceId. The URL always opens the active version of the workflow.
|ShowTree=none||Add this parameter to hide the left-panel tree.|
|ShowTabs=no||Add this parameter to hide the main form container tab bar.|
|Culture=[Language Culture Name]||Add a culture to force a system globalization settings in the form, such as date formats.|
|uiculture=[Language Culture Name]||Add a uiculture to force a system globalization settings in the form, such as date formats.|
UPDATE: For Sequence 7 and later, ShowTree and ShowTabs were replaced with new parameters. The old parameters are still supported, but the new ones are more consistent and easy to use. For more information, read this post.
