IContainer Interface

Creates, wires dependencies and manages lifetime for a set of components. Most instances of IContainer are created by a ContainerBuilder.

Namespace:  Autofac
Assembly:  Autofac (in Autofac.dll) Version: 4.9.1+831973f4d02fbc619921dfaa8ac0c536f60ae7a3
Syntax
public interface IContainer : ILifetimeScope, 
	IComponentContext, IDisposable

The IContainer type exposes the following members.

Properties
  NameDescription
Public propertyComponentRegistry
Gets the associated services with the components that provide them.
(Inherited from IComponentContext.)
Public propertyDisposer
Gets the disposer associated with this ILifetimeScope. Component instances can be associated with it manually if required.
(Inherited from ILifetimeScope.)
Public propertyTag
Gets the tag applied to the ILifetimeScope.
(Inherited from ILifetimeScope.)

(Inherited from ILifetimeScope.)
Public methodBeginLifetimeScope(Object)
Begin a new nested scope. Component instances created via the new scope will be disposed along with it.
(Inherited from ILifetimeScope.)
Public methodBeginLifetimeScope(ActionContainerBuilder)
Begin a new nested scope, with additional components available to it. Component instances created via the new scope will be disposed along with it.
(Inherited from ILifetimeScope.)
Public methodBeginLifetimeScope(Object, ActionContainerBuilder)
Begin a new nested scope, with additional components available to it. Component instances created via the new scope will be disposed along with it.
(Inherited from ILifetimeScope.)
Public methodDispose
Performs application-defined tasks associated with freeing, releasing, or resetting unmanaged resources.
(Inherited from IDisposable.)
Public methodResolveComponent
Resolve an instance of the provided registration within the context.
(Inherited from IComponentContext.)

Remarks
Most IContainer functionality is provided by extension methods on the inherited IComponentContext interface.
Examples
// See ContainerBuilder for the definition of the builder variable
using (var container = builder.Build())
{
    var program = container.Resolve<Program>();
    program.Run();
}
