DeferrableContentConverter.ConvertFrom Method (ITypeDescriptorContext, CultureInfo, Object)

.NET Framework 4.6 and 4.5

Converts the specified stream to a new DeferrableContent object.

Namespace:  System.Windows
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)

public override Object ConvertFrom(
	ITypeDescriptorContext context,
	CultureInfo culture,
	Object value


Type: System.ComponentModel.ITypeDescriptorContext

An ITypeDescriptorContext that provides a format context.

Type: System.Globalization.CultureInfo

The CultureInfo to use as the current culture.

Type: System.Object

The source stream to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.Object
A new DeferrableContent object.


context is null.


context is not able to provide the necessary XAML schema context for BAML.


IProvideValueTarget service interpretation of context determines that the target object is not a ResourceDictionary.


value is not a valid byte stream.

The value for context must provide services for IXamlSchemaContextProvider, IRootObjectProvider, IXamlObjectWriterFactory, and IProvideValueTarget. The schema context when IXamlSchemaContextProvider is queried must be an internally implemented XAML schema context that is particular for BAML usages. This prevents most user code scenarios from using DeferrableContentConverter.
