The CanConvertFrom method determines whether the strings contained in the configuration file can be converted to the related strongly typed properties.

The following example code shows how to override the CanConvertFrom method to create a custom TimeSpan converter type. Also, the example shows how to use this type in a custom section.

public override bool CanConvertTo(
    ITypeDescriptorContext ctx, Type type)
{
    return (type == typeof(string));
}
