IDependencyResolver Interface

Defines the methods that simplify service location and dependency resolution.

Namespace:  System.Web.Mvc
Assembly:  System.Web.Mvc (in System.Web.Mvc.dll)


Public Interface IDependencyResolver
Dim instance As IDependencyResolver
public interface IDependencyResolver
public interface class IDependencyResolver
type IDependencyResolver =  interface end
public interface IDependencyResolver

The IDependencyResolver type exposes the following members.


  Name Description
Public method GetService Resolves singly registered services that support arbitrary object creation.
Public method GetServices Resolves multiply registered services.


Extension Methods

  Name Description
Public Extension Method GetService<TService> Resolves singly registered services that support arbitrary object creation. (Defined by DependencyResolverExtensions.)
Public Extension Method GetServices<TService> Resolves multiply registered services. (Defined by DependencyResolverExtensions.)



Implementations of this interface should delegate to the underlying dependency injection container to provide the registered service for the requested type. When there are no registered services of the requested type, the ASP.NET MVC framework expects implementations of this interface to return nulla null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) from GetService and to return an empty collection from GetServices.
