Unity.WebForms is a collection of various ideas on Dependency Injection utilizing the Unity container in ASP.NET WebForm applications, formalized into a single NuGet package for easy integration into an existing application.

This package was inspired by similar packages from DevTrends, specifically:

The only difference is that this packages is a DLL integration with minimal source code added. The only source file added is to allow the configuration of the Unity container with your types.

This particular package (Jehoel.Unity.AspNetWebForms) and repo (at is a git fork of S. Kyle Korndoerfer's original project at with a main objective of supporting ASP.NET WebForms 4.7.2's new WebObjectActivator which means that Page, UserControl and other types can use true constructor dependency injection.

This repo's objectives are:

  • Update to .NET Framework 4.7.2 (done)
  • Update existing dependencies, including Unity 5 (done)
  • Add in support for WebObjectActivator, as per Microsoft's example at (done)
  • Update the sample project (done)
  • Publish to NuGet (Jehoel.Unity.AspNetWebForms) (done)

Current Version

  • 1.4 (right before .NET 4.7.2 support)
  • 2.0 (this repo and project)

NuGet Gallery

Version 1.4 (.NET 4.5, no support for WebObjectActivator)

Version 2.0 (.NET 4.7.2, with support for WebObjectActivator)
