IoC Resolver

IoC Resolver

The inversion of control resolver automatically tries to instance a class with its dependancies. The Resolver object will look at a classes constructor and automatically inject its dependencies.


The Resolver classes method resolve() take one argument:

  1. $class - The name of the class.

The resolve() method will check the classes constructor and try to resolve the dependencies by looking at the type hints in the constructor. If a constructor argument has a default value and no type hint the default value will be used.

// Classes
class Cheese {
    public $type;

    function __construct( $type = 'cheddar' ) {
        $this->type = $type;

class Pizza {
    public $cheese;

    function __construct( \Cheese $cheese ) {
        $this->cheese = $cheese;

// Resolver
$resolver = new \TypeRocket\Core\Resolver();
$pizza = $resolver->resolve('Pizza');
echo $pizza->cheese->type;
