)

Parameters

Type: System.ComponentModel.ITypeDescriptorContext

An ITypeDescriptorContext that provides a format context.

value
Type: System.Object

The Object to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.String
An Object that represents the converted value.

ExceptionCondition
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.
