Property Value

Type: System.Object

The object that invokes the method on the TypeDescriptor; otherwise, null if there is no object responsible for the call.

The Instance property gets the object that is invoking the ITypeDescriptorContext interface. For example, if a type converter is given a Color to convert, Instance returns the actual instance of the control that is using the Color. You can subsequently query the control for further information about its services and its Container.
