Namespace:  System.Web.UI.Design.MobileControls.Converters
Assembly:  System.Web.Mobile (in System.Web.Mobile.dll)
public override bool CanConvertFrom(
	ITypeDescriptorContext context,
	Type sourceType
)

Parameters

context
Type: System.ComponentModel.ITypeDescriptorContext

An ITypeDescriptorContext object that represents the data-bound component or the control that the property belongs to.

sourceType
Type: System.Type

The type to convert from.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean

You typically do not access a type converter directly. This implementation of TypeConverter is intended for use by a data-bound control at design time, and is instantiated with a TypeConverterAttribute on a property.
