DataMemberConverter provides methods that can retrieve a list of data members from the current data source of a design-time component.

This type converter is used by Visual Studio .NET to provide the values that appear in the list of data members in the Properties window.

CAUTION   You should never access a type converter directly. Instead, call the appropriate converter by using TypeDescriptor. For more information, see the examples in the TypeConverter base class.

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