    Getting the service

    Dependency Injection

    If you wish to use the file service in a class, you need to specify the IFileService interface in your constructor:

    public class MyClass
    {
        private IFileService _fileService;
        
        public MyClass(IFileService fileService)
        {
            _fileService = fileService;
        }
    }
    

    In Razor views, you can access the file service through the @inject directive:

    @inject IFileService FileService
