	CultureInfo culture,
	object value,
	Type destinationType
)

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

Return Value

Type: System.Object

Throws an exception in all cases.

Exception Condition
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.
