Thread Safety

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.


This converter can only convert a Boolean object to and from a string.

For more information about type converters, see the TypeConverter base class and Implementing a Type Converter.

Note   You should never create an instance of a BooleanConverter. Instead, call the GetConverter method of TypeDescriptor. For more information, see the examples in the TypeConverter base class.


[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following example converts a variable of type Boolean to and from a string.

[Visual Basic] 
Dim bVal As Boolean = True
Dim strA As String = "false"
Console.WriteLine(TypeDescriptor.GetConverter(bVal).ConvertTo(bVal, GetType(String)))

bool bVal=true;
string strA="false";
Console.WriteLine(TypeDescriptor.GetConverter(bVal).ConvertTo(bVal, typeof(string))); 

bool bVal( true );
String* strA = S"false";
Console::WriteLine(TypeDescriptor::GetConverter(__box(bVal))->ConvertTo(__box(bVal), __typeof(String)));
