ComponentResourceKeyConverter.ConvertTo Method (ITypeDescriptorContext, CultureInfo, Object, Type)

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

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

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

Parameters

context
Type: System.ComponentModel.ITypeDescriptorContext
A format context that provides information about the environment from which this converter is being invoked.
culture
Type: System.Globalization.CultureInfo
Culture specific information.
value
Type: System.Object
The object to convert.
destinationType
Type: System.Type
The type to convert the object to.

Return Value

Type: System.Object
Throws an exception in all cases.

ExceptionCondition
NotSupportedException

Cannot perform the conversion.

ArgumentException

value is not type of ComponentResourceKey.

ArgumentNullException

destinationType is null.

The ComponentResourceKey type should not use a type converter pathway to convert values. You 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.
