Namespace:  System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public static bool ToBoolean(
	Object value,
	IFormatProvider provider
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Object
An Object that implements the IConvertible interface or null.
provider
Type: System.IFormatProvider
An IFormatProvider interface implementation that supplies culture-specific formatting information.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true or false, which reflects the value returned by invoking the ToBoolean method for the underlying type of value. If value is null, the method returns false.

ExceptionCondition
InvalidCastException

value does not implement the IConvertible interface.

provider enables the user to specify culture-specific conversion information about the contents of value. For example, if value is a String that represents a number, provider could supply culture-specific information about the notation used to represent that number.

The base types ignore provider; however, it is honored if value is a user-defined type that implements the IConvertible interface.
