Remarks

A metadata provider provides metadata for a model. Metadata providers must derive from ModelMetadataProvider. You can inherit from this class if you want to use a custom validator or a third-party validator that uses attribute-based metadata.

This class implements the abstract methods of the ModelMetadataProvider class and contains additional abstract methods. When you implement this class, use the AssociatedValidatorProvider class to implement the validator.

Model provider classes and validator provider classes are loosely coupled. Therefore, they work independently and have no dependencies on each other.

However, the metadata provider exposes metadata that can be accessed and used by validation providers. For example, the default metadata provider (the DataAnnotationsModelMetadataProvider class) reads the display name of an object. This display name is used by the DataAnnotationsModelValidatorProvider validation provider when it creates a validation error message.

Constructors

When overridden in a derived class, initializes a new instance of the class that derives from the AssociatedMetadataProvider class.
