FromFiles

TypeRegistry FromFiles(
  params FileDescriptor[] fileDescriptors
)

Creates a type registry from the specified set of file descriptors.

This is a convenience overload for FromFiles(IEnumerable{FileDescriptor}) to allow calls such as TypeRegistry.FromFiles(descriptor1, descriptor2).

Details
Parameters
fileDescriptors
The set of files to include in the registry. Must not contain null values.
Returns
A type registry for the given files.

FromFiles

TypeRegistry FromFiles(
  IEnumerable< FileDescriptor > fileDescriptors
)

Creates a type registry from the specified set of file descriptors.

All message types within all the specified files are added to the registry, and the dependencies of the specified files are also added, recursively.

Details
Parameters
fileDescriptors
The set of files to include in the registry. Must not contain null values.
Returns
A type registry for the given files.

FromMessages

TypeRegistry FromMessages(
  params MessageDescriptor[] messageDescriptors
)

Creates a type registry from the file descriptor parents of the specified set of message descriptors.

This is a convenience overload for FromMessages(IEnumerable{MessageDescriptor}) to allow calls such as TypeRegistry.FromFiles(descriptor1, descriptor2).

Details
Parameters
messageDescriptors
The set of message descriptors to use to identify file descriptors to include in the registry. Must not contain null values.
Returns
A type registry for the given files.

FromMessages

TypeRegistry FromMessages(
  IEnumerable< MessageDescriptor > messageDescriptors
)

Creates a type registry from the file descriptor parents of the specified set of message descriptors.

The specified message descriptors are only used to identify their file descriptors; the returned registry contains all the types within the file descriptors which contain the specified message descriptors (and the dependencies of those files), not just the specified messages.

Details
Parameters
messageDescriptors
The set of message descriptors to use to identify file descriptors to include in the registry. Must not contain null values.
Returns
A type registry for the given files.
