CompositionContainer.GetExportsCore Method

Microsoft Silverlight will reach end of support after October 2021. Learn more.

Returns a collection of all exports that match the conditions in the specified ImportDefinition object.

Namespace:  System.ComponentModel.Composition.Hosting
Assembly:  System.ComponentModel.Composition (in System.ComponentModel.Composition.dll)


Protected Overrides Function GetExportsCore ( _
    definition As ImportDefinition, _
    atomicComposition As AtomicComposition _
) As IEnumerable(Of Export)
protected override IEnumerable<Export> GetExportsCore(
    ImportDefinition definition,
    AtomicComposition atomicComposition


Return Value

Type: System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable<Export>
A collection of all the Export objects in this CompositionContainer object that match the conditions specified by definition.


Implementations should not treat cardinality-related mismatches as errors and should not throw exceptions for cardinality-related mismatches. For example, if the import requests exactly one export and the provider has either no matching exports or more than one, the GetExportsCore method should return an empty IEnumerable<T> collection of Export objects.
