	Type destinationType
)

Parameters

context
Type: System.ComponentModel.ITypeDescriptorContext

A ITypeDescriptorContext that can be used to get additional information about the environment this converter is being called from. This may be null, so you should always check. Also, properties on the context object may also return null.

culture
Type: System.Globalization.CultureInfo

An CultureInfo object that contains culture specific information, such as the language, calendar, and cultural conventions associated with a specific culture. It is based on the RFC 1766 standard.

value
Type: System.Object

The object to convert.

destinationType
Type: System.Type

The type to convert the object to.

Return Value

Type: System.Object
The converted object.

ExceptionCondition
NotSupportedException

The conversion cannot be completed.

The most common type conversion is to and from a string type. The default implementation calls the ToString method of the object if the object is valid and if the destination type is string. If this method cannot convert the specified object to the destination type, it passes a NotSupportedException exception.
