Output parameter in a custom Sharepoint Designer activity

If you're having trouble with an output parameter in a custom SharePoint Designer activity, check the following:

  • DesignerType="ParameterNames" in the FieldBind element in the .actions file
  • Direction="Out" in the Parameter element in the .actions file
And when you're sure everything is correct and your activity shows up in the SPD menu but doesn't do anything upon insertion, clear your SPD DLL cache: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/sharepointdesigner/archive/2007/03/27/tip-clearing-the-spd-workflow-assembly-cache.aspx

In Windows 7, the path to the WebSiteCache folder is "C:\Users\yourUserName\AppData\Local\Microsoft\WebsiteCache"
