IDbContextFactory<TContext> IDbContextFactory(Of TContext) Interface


A factory for creating derived DbContext instances. Implement this interface to enable design-time services for context types that do not have a public default constructor. At design-time, derived DbContext instances can be created in order to enable specific design-time experiences such as Migrations. Design-time services will automatically discover implementations of this interface that are in the same assembly as the derived context.

public interface IDbContextFactory<out TContext>
    where TContext : DbContext
Public Interface IDbContextFactory(Of Out TContext As DbContext)

Type Parameters


The type of the context.


Create(DbContextFactoryOptions) Create(DbContextFactoryOptions)
