ConfigurationSectionDeserializer / ConfigurationSectionListDeserializer

These classes makes it easy to load a strongly-typed object (or IList of objects) from a custom web.config or app.config file section without having to write a custom IConfigurationSectionHandler implementation.

In the .config file, register each custom section with a type of "SparkyTools.XmlConfig.ConfigurationSectionDeserializer" or "SparkyTools.XmlConfig.ConfigurationSectionListDeserializer":

    <section name="Foo" type="SparkyTools.XmlConfig.Fx.ConfigurationSectionDeserializer, SparkyTools.XmlConfig.Fx" />
    <section name="FooList" type="SparkyTools.XmlConfig.Fx.ConfigurationSectionListDeserializer, SparkyTools.XmlConfig.Fx" />

In each registered custom section, specify the object type via the type attribute. Here's an single instance section:

  <Foo type="FooNamespace.Foo, FooAssemblyName">

...and a "list" section: (the type is the instance type, not "IList..."):

  <FooList type="FooNamespace.Bar, FooAssemblyName">

To read from your custom .config section, just call the Load method, specifying the object type and the .config section name:

    Foo foo = ConfigurationSectionDeserializer.Load<Foo>("Foo");
    IList<Foo> fooList = ConfigurationSectionListDeserializer.Load<Foo>("FooList");

DependencyProvider methods

These methods create DependencyProviders for use with apps that use app.config / web.config files:

  • ConfigurationSectionDeserializer.DependencyProvider / ConfigurationSectionListDeserializer.DependencyProvider create DependencyProviders that load data from a .config file section:
    using SparkyTools.DependencyProvider;
    public class Foo
        public Foo(
            DependencyProvider<Bar> barProvider, 
            DependencyProvider<IList<Baz>> bazProvider)
    using SparkyTools.XmlConfig.Fx;
    . . .
        var foo = new Foo(
  • AppSettings.DependencyProvider creates a DependencyProvider that wraps ConfigurationManager.AppSettings:
    using SparkyTools.DependencyProvider;
    public class Qux
        private readonly Func<string, string> _getAppSetting;
        public Qux(DependencyProvider<Func<string, string> appSettingsProvider)
            _getAppSetting = appSettingsProvider.GetValue();
        public void MethodUsingAppSettings()
            string valueFromAppSettings = _getAppSetting("key);
    using SparkyTools.XmlConfig.Fx;
        var qux = new Qux(AppSettings.DependencyProvider());
