Exception when searching for validators

See original GitHub issue

I haven’t been able to replicate this locally, but have identified this exception from our test envrionment. This appears to happen if a validator isn’t in DI and Blazored FluentValidation scans for it.

I am assuming that this scan is just identifying an existing issue in my solution, but is it possible to handle these errors more gracefully?

System.Reflection.ReflectionTypeLoadException: Unable to load one or more of the requested types.

The component wasn’t ever designed to work with that scenario, it was only designed to work with validators registered via DI.

The only way I can see around this is to allow you to pass in a validator instance to use to validate that particular form. I’m not sure how much work that would be. If you could raise that as a separate feature request then it can be looked into.

Are you concerned that if you swallow exceptions during the assembly scan then it may silently fail to resolve validators?

Correct, if an assembly couldn’t be found and that had the validator in it, then we wouldn’t be able to validate the form and there wouldn’t be any clues to anyone as to why.

It contains a child component with no validation, and it is this search which is failing. To work around it, I’ve just registered an empty validator in DI.

That’s interesting. I’ll have a look play around and see if there is anything we can tweak to improve this.
