TypeConverterGetStandardValuesExclusive Method

Returns whether the collection of standard values returned from GetStandardValues is an exclusive list of possible values, using the specified context.

Namespace:   System.ComponentModel
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

public virtual bool GetStandardValuesExclusive(
	ITypeDescriptorContext context
virtual bool GetStandardValuesExclusive(
	ITypeDescriptorContext^ context
abstract GetStandardValuesExclusive : 
        context:ITypeDescriptorContext -> bool
override GetStandardValuesExclusive : 
        context:ITypeDescriptorContext -> bool
Public Overridable Function GetStandardValuesExclusive (
	context As ITypeDescriptorContext
) As Boolean



An ITypeDescriptorContext that provides a format context.

Return Value


true if the TypeConverterStandardValuesCollection returned from GetStandardValues is an exhaustive list of possible values; false if other values are possible.


As implemented in this class, this method always returns false.

If the list is exclusive, such as in an enumeration data type, then no other values are valid. If the list is not exclusive, then other valid values might exist in addition to the list of standard values that the GetStandardValues method provides. If the values are exclusive, the list returned by GetStandardValues should not allow these values to be edited.

Notes to Inheritors:

Override this method if the type you want to convert supports standard values.

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.
