The Options pattern allowed me to create options objects containing values from configuration, as described here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/aspnet/core/fundamentals/configuration/options
I need the values for one option object within an IDesignTimeDbContextFactory implementation, to be used by EF when creating the models. (The values in that config section will be used for data seeding, and so I added IOptions to the DB Context constructor.)
As I have no access to IServiceCollection (since it's design time - like when running "dotnet ef migrations add", I need to have another way to convert an IConfigurationSection (representing the section I'm interested in) to my custom Options class.
May I know how I can do this without dependency injection?
You can use the
Bind(Configuration, object) extension method to perform manual binding of any
object. Here's an example:
var myCustomOptions = new MyCustomOptions(); myConfigurationSection.Bind(myCustomOptions); // Use myCustomOptions directly.
To wrap this in an
IOptions<MyCustomOptions> myOptions = Options.Create(myCustomOptions);
ServiceCollectionContainerBuilderExtensions makes this work in the SoapCore
The part from my application worked out like that:
services.AddSingleton<IRESAdapterService>(new RESAdapterService( new XController( services.BuildServiceProvider().GetRequiredService<IOptions<XApiSettingsFromJsonClass>>(), _xLogger )));
Also usable in the integrity unittests
