public override Object ConvertTo(
	ITypeDescriptorContext context,
	CultureInfo culture,
	Object value,
	Type destinationType
)

Parameters

context
Type: System.ComponentModel.ITypeDescriptorContext

A formatter context. This object can be used to get more information about the environment this converter is being called from. This may be null, so you should always check. Also, properties on the context object may also return null.

culture
Type: System.Globalization.CultureInfo

A CultureInfo object that specifies formatting conventions used by a particular culture.

value
Type: System.Object

The Image to convert.

destinationType
Type: System.Type

The Type to convert the Image to.

Return Value

Type: System.Object
This method returns the converted object.

ExceptionCondition
NotSupportedException

The conversion cannot be completed.

The most common type conversion is to and from a string type. The default implementation calls the ToString method of the object if the object is valid and if the destination type is string. If this method cannot convert the specified object to the destination type, it throws a NotSupportedException exception.
