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

public override object ConvertTo(
	ITypeDescriptorContext context,
	CultureInfo culture,
	object value,
	Type destinationType
)

Parameters

context
Type: System.ComponentModel.ITypeDescriptorContext

A formatter context.

culture
Type: System.Globalization.CultureInfo

The culture into which value will be converted.

value
Type: System.Object

The object to convert.

destinationType
Type: System.Type

The type to convert the object to.

Return Value

Type: System.Object

The converted object.

This method most commonly converts types to and from string objects.

The default implementation will make a call to ToString on the object if the object is valid and if the destination type is string. If this method cannot convert to the destination type, it will throw a NotSupportedException.

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.
