This converter can only convert a Boolean object to and from a string.

For more information about type converters, see the TypeConverter base class and How to: Implement a Type Converter.


You should never create an instance of a BooleanConverter. Instead, call the GetConverter method of the TypeDescriptor class. For more information, see the examples in the TypeConverter base class.

The following code example converts a variable of type Boolean to and from a string.

bool bVal=true;
string strA="false";
Console.WriteLine(TypeDescriptor.GetConverter(bVal).ConvertTo(bVal, typeof(string))); 

boolean bVal = true;
String strA = "false";
    ConvertTo((System.Boolean)bVal, String.class.ToType()));


Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
