Interface IDetailsPageProvider

public interface IDetailsPageProvider

The class that implements this interface provides for dynamic computation of page key and the page itself based on the input object. It should be used in situations where using the object class as a static key is not enough i.e. different pages may need to be loaded for objects of the same type depending on their state.
