Parameters

context
Type:

An ITypeDescriptorContext that provides a format context.

value
Type:

The Object to convert.

Return Value

Type:

A String that represents the converted value.

Exception Condition
NotSupportedException

The conversion cannot be performed.

Use the context parameter to extract additional information about the environment from which this converter is invoked. This parameter can be null, so always check it. Also, properties on the context object can return null.

Depending on the implementation of the value formatter, it might be possible to pass the returned string back into the value formatter to re-create an instance of the object.
