value does not implement the IConvertible interface.

The return value is the result of invoking the IConvertible.ToChar method of the underlying type of value.

provider enables the user to specify culture-specific conversion information about the contents of value. For example, if value is a String that represents a number, provider could supply culture-specific information about the notation used to represent that number.

The base types ignore provider; however, it is honored if value is a user-defined type that implements the IConvertible interface.
