LinkArea.LinkAreaConverter.ConvertTo Method (ITypeDescriptorContext, CultureInfo, Object, Type)

This member overrides TypeConverter.ConvertTo(ITypeDescriptorContext, CultureInfo, Object, Type), and more complete documentation might be available in that topic.

Converts the given object to another type. The most common types to convert are to and from a string object. The default implementation will make a call to ToString on the object if the object is valid and if the destination type is string. If this cannot convert to the destination type, this will throw a NotSupportedException.
