I just wanted to thank you for publishing this. I downloaded your source code and was able to wrap my brain around creating custom actions in SP Designer. They remind me a lot of creating custom timer jobs.

I have to say, its so much easier to learn code when you can read the source for complex solutions like this. Those little MSDN snippets are never robust enough for real world problems.

To all that are reading, SharePoint designer 2010 workflows often have trouble casting types directly from the CurrentItem. To get around this, create workflow variables and use the Set Workflow Variable Action to set them equal to the value within CurrentItem. After that, use the variables in your parameters. I found this to help a lot with these custom actions as well as a lot of OOTB.
