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

public IEnumerable<Lazy<T>> GetExports<T>()

Type Parameters


The type of the Export<T> objects to return. The contract name is also derived from this type parameter.

Return Value

Type: System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable<Lazy<T>>
The Export<T> objects with the contract name derived from T, if found; otherwise, an empty ExportCollection<T> object.


The CompositionContainer object has been disposed of.

The returned Export<T> objects are instances of Export<T, TMetadataView> underneath, where TMetadataView is IDictionary<TKey, TValue>, TKey is String, and TValue is Object.

The contract name is the result of calling the GetContractName method on T.

The contract name is compared by using the Ordinal property to perform a case-sensitive, non-linguistic comparison.
