ComponentResourceKeyConverter.CanConvertTo Method (ITypeDescriptorContext, Type)

This API supports the .NET Framework infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code.

Determines whether an instance of ComponentResourceKey can be converted to the specified type, using the specified context. Always returns false.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Markup
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)

public override bool CanConvertTo(
	ITypeDescriptorContext context,
	Type destinationType
)

Parameters

context
Type: System.ComponentModel.ITypeDescriptorContext
A format context that provides information about the environment from which this converter is being invoked.
destinationType
Type: System.Type
The type being evaluated for conversion.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
false in all cases.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

destinationType is null.

The ComponentResourceKey type should not use a type converter pathway to convert values (should use markup extensions instead). For this reason, the CanConvertFrom(ITypeDescriptorContext, Type) and CanConvertTo(ITypeDescriptorContext, Type) methods always return false. The ConvertFrom(ITypeDescriptorContext, CultureInfo, Object) and ConvertTo(ITypeDescriptorContext, CultureInfo, Object, Type) methods always throw an exception.
