A formatter context.

The culture into which value will be converted.

The object to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.Object

The converted object.

Exception Condition
ArgumentNullException

destinationType is null.

NotSupportedException

The conversion cannot be performed.

The most common types to convert are to and from a string object. The default implementation will make a call to ToString on the object if the object is valid and if the destination type is string.

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