This converter can only convert a single-precision, floating point number object to and from a string. The Single value type represents a single-precision 32-bit number with values ranging from negative 3.402823e38 to positive 3.402823e38.


You should never create an instance of SingleConverter. Instead, call the GetConverter method of TypeDescriptor. For more information, see the examples in the TypeConverter base class and How to: Implement a Type Converter.

The following sample converts a variable of type Single to a string, and vice versa.

Single s=3.402823E+10F;
string mySStr="3.402823E+10";
Console.WriteLine(TypeDescriptor.GetConverter(s).ConvertTo(s, typeof(string))); 

Single s = (Single)3.402823E+10;
String mySStr = "3.402823E+10";

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