LowerCaseStringConverter.ConvertTo Method (ITypeDescriptorContext, CultureInfo, Object, Type)

Converts an object to a lowercase string based on the specified parameters.

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

public override Object ConvertTo(
	ITypeDescriptorContext ctx,
	CultureInfo ci,
	Object value,
	Type type
)

Parameters

ctx
Type: System.ComponentModel.ITypeDescriptorContext

An object that implements the ITypeDescriptorContext interface.

ci
Type: System.Globalization.CultureInfo

An object that implements the CultureInfo class.

value
Type: System.Object

The object to convert.

type
Type: System.Type

The type of 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 value 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.

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