Notes to Inheritors

For use as a type converter for custom-type attribute handling in Silverlight XAML, you do not need to implement this method (it is not called by the Silverlight 4 XAML parser for type conversion purposes, and there is no XamlWriter in Silverlight). However , you might still want to implement a practical behavior for CanConvertTo as a best practice.

The base implementation always returns false.
