public class SelectionRangeConverter : TypeConverter

The SelectionRange class represents a single date or a range of dates. This class is commonly associated with the MonthCalendar control, where it represents the selected and highlighted dates. The SelectionRangeConverter class is an adjunct class to SelectionRange that enables you to convert to and from other types, most often strings.

For more information about type converters, see the TypeConverter base class, Generalized Type Conversion, and How to: Implement a Type Converter.


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