ServiceContainer Class

Provides a simple implementation of the IServiceContainer interface. This class cannot be inherited.

Namespace: System.ComponentModel.Design
Assembly: System (in system.dll)

'Declaration
Public Class ServiceContainer
	Implements IServiceContainer, IServiceProvider, IDisposable
'Usage
Dim instance As ServiceContainer

public class ServiceContainer implements IServiceContainer, IServiceProvider, 
	IDisposable
public class ServiceContainer implements IServiceContainer, IServiceProvider, 
	IDisposable
Not applicable.

The ServiceContainer object can be used to store and provide services. ServiceContainer implements the IServiceContainer interface.

The ServiceContainer object can be created using a constructor that adds a parent IServiceContainer through which services can be optionally added to or removed from all parent IServiceContainer objects, including the immediate parent IServiceContainer. To add or remove a service from all IServiceContainer implementations that are linked to this IServiceContainer through parenting, call the AddService or RemoveService method overload that accepts a Boolean value indicating whether to promote the service request.

NoteNote:

The HostProtectionAttribute attribute applied to this class has the following Resources property value: SharedState. The HostProtectionAttribute does not affect desktop applications (which are typically started by double-clicking an icon, typing a command, or entering a URL in a browser). For more information, see the HostProtectionAttribute class or SQL Server Programming and Host Protection Attributes.

The following example program demonstrates service chaining and the resultant service availability of a chain of linked ServiceContainer objects. The program provides a user interface that allows you to see the availability of services within a chain of linked services, and uses the AddService, GetService, and RemoveService methods as well as linked service containers.
