Returns an exception to throw when a conversion cannot be performed.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Markup
Assembly:  System.Xaml (in System.Xaml.dll)

protected Exception GetConvertToException(
	Object value,
	Type destinationType
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Object
The object that could not be converted.
destinationType
Type: System.Type
A type that represents the type the conversion was trying to convert to.

Return Value

Type: System.Exception
An Exception object for the exception to throw when a ConvertTo conversion cannot be performed.

The actual throw keyword is not invoked by this method, therefore the typical usage is throw GetConvertToException (with value parameter provided).

The specific exception returned is InvalidOperationException, with value passed in the exception message. The pattern for usage is the same as for exception utilities in TypeConverter.
