inject.binding variable

Inject the binding object for the given key. This is useful if a binding needs to be set up beyond just a constant value allowed by @inject.setter. The injected binding is found or created based on the metadata.bindingCreation option. See BindingCreationPolicy for more details.

Signature:

binding: (bindingKey?: string | import("./binding-key").BindingKey<unknown> | undefined, metadata?: InjectBindingMetadata | undefined) => (target: Object, member: string | undefined, methodDescriptorOrParameterIndex?: number | TypedPropertyDescriptor<any> | undefined) => void

Example

class MyAuthAction {
  @inject.binding('current-user', {
    bindingCreation: BindingCreationPolicy.ALWAYS_CREATE,
  })
  private userBinding: Binding<UserProfile>;

  async authenticate() {
    this.userBinding.toDynamicValue(() => {...});
  }
}
