LowerCaseStringConverter.CanConvertFrom Method (ITypeDescriptorContext, Type)

Determines whether an object can be converted to a lowercase string based on the specified parameters.

Namespace:  System.Web.Configuration
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

public override bool CanConvertFrom(
	ITypeDescriptorContext ctx,
	Type type
)

Parameters

ctx
Type: System.ComponentModel.ITypeDescriptorContext

An object that implements the ITypeDescriptorContext interface.

type
Type: System.Type

The type of object to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the parameters describe an object that can be converted to a lowercase string object; otherwise, false.

This method uses an object that implements the ITypeDescriptorContext interface as the ctx parameter. This interface provides contextual information about a component. Typically, this interface is used at design time to provide information about a design-time container. The ITypeDescriptorContext is commonly used in type conversion. Override this method in a derived class if custom behavior is required.

The following example demonstrates how to use this method.

// CanConvertFrom method.
Console.WriteLine("CanConvertFrom: {0}",
  myLCStrConverter.CanConvertFrom(ctx, testStrVal.GetType()));
