The ImageKeyConverter class is used to convert key values of an ImageList to and from other data types. For more information about type converters, see the TypeConverter base class and How to: Implement a Type Converter.


Typically, you do not directly create an instance of an ImageKeyConverter. Instead, call the GetConverter method of the TypeDescriptor class. For more information, see the examples in the TypeConverter base class.
