Namespace:  System.Web.Configuration
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

public override Object ConvertFrom(
	ITypeDescriptorContext ctx,
	CultureInfo ci,
	Object data


Type: System.ComponentModel.ITypeDescriptorContext

An object that implements the ITypeDescriptorContext interface.

Type: System.Globalization.CultureInfo

An object that implements the CultureInfo class.

Type: System.Object

The object to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.Object
A lowercase string object.

This method uses an object that implements the ITypeDescriptorContext interface as the ctx parameter. This interface provides contextual information about a component. Typically, this interface is used at design time to provide information about a design-time container. The ITypeDescriptorContext is commonly used in type conversion. The ci parameter object provides the culture-related information. The data parameter object acts as both the object to convert and the resulting object once the method is complete. Override this method in a derived class if custom behavior is required.

The following example demonstrates how to use this method.

// ConvertFrom method.
Console.WriteLine("Original Value: {0}",
resultStrVal = myLCStrConverter.ConvertFrom(ctx, ci, testStrVal);
Console.WriteLine("ConvertFrom result: {0}",
