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)

type IDependencyResolver =  interface end

The IDependencyResolver type exposes the following members.

Public methodGetServiceResolves singly registered services that support arbitrary object creation.
Public methodGetServicesResolves multiply registered services.

Public Extension MethodGetService(TService)Resolves singly registered services that support arbitrary object creation. (Defined by DependencyResolverExtensions.)
Public Extension MethodGetServices(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 a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) from GetService and to return an empty collection from GetServices.
