TypeConverter.CanConvertTo Method (ITypeDescriptorContext, Type)

Returns whether this converter can convert the object to the specified type, using the specified context.

Namespace: System.ComponentModel
Assembly: System (in system.dll)

public virtual bool CanConvertTo (
	ITypeDescriptorContext context,
	Type destinationType
)
public boolean CanConvertTo (
	ITypeDescriptorContext context, 
	Type destinationType
)
public function CanConvertTo (
	context : ITypeDescriptorContext, 
	destinationType : Type
) : boolean
Not applicable.

Parameters

context

An ITypeDescriptorContext that provides a format context.

destinationType

A Type that represents the type you want to convert to.

Return Value

true if this converter can perform the conversion; otherwise, false.

Use the context parameter to extract additional information about the environment from which this converter is invoked. This parameter can be a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), so always check it. Also, properties on the context object can return a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

If destinationType is a string, the default implementation of CanConvertTo always returns true.

Notes to Inheritors: Override this method to provide your own conversion requirements.
