How to use bookmark in WF4

BookMark can be used to implement event driven style workflow. Below is some sample code.

//in your activity, you override Execute method, to put your workflow idle
protected override void Execute(NativeActivityContext context)
{
    string bookmark = this.BookmarkName.Get(context);
    context.CreateBookmark(bookmark,
                           delegate(NativeActivityContext ctx, Bookmark bMark, object state)
                           {
                               string input = state as string;
                               ctx.SetValue(this.Result, input);
                           });
}

//in your host, wakeup your workflow
application.ResumeBookmark(bookmarkName, text);
