Remarks

The DataSourceIDConverter class is a TypeConverter object that is typically referenced by the TypeConverterAttribute attribute.

The data source names that are returned by the GetStandardValues method are of components from the container of the specified context that are valid data sources.

The GetStandardValuesExclusive method gets a value indicating whether the returned data source names are an exclusive list of possible values. The GetStandardValuesSupported method gets a value indicating whether the data source names are a standard set of values that can be picked from a list.

The ConvertFrom method converts the specified object to the native type of the converter. The CanConvertFrom method gets a value indicating whether this DataSourceIDConverter can convert an object in the specified source type to the native type.

The IsValidDataSource method indicates whether the specified component implements the IDataSource interface.
