The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

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

Attempts to convert the specified object to a ComponentResourceKey, using the specified context. Throws an exception in all cases.

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

public override object ConvertFrom(
	ITypeDescriptorContext context,
	CultureInfo culture,
	object value


Type: System.ComponentModel.ITypeDescriptorContext

A format context that provides information about the environment from which this converter is being invoked.

Type: System.Globalization.CultureInfo

Culture specific information.

Type: System.Object

The object to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.Object

Throws an exception in all cases.

Exception Condition

Cannot perform the conversion.

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.
