LinkArea.LinkAreaConverter.ConvertTo Method (ITypeDescriptorContext, CultureInfo, Object, Type)

 
Use BaseTrue

Converts the given object to another type. The most common types to convert are to and from a string object. The default implementation will make a call to ToString on the object if the object is valid and if the destination type is string. If this cannot convert to the destination type, this will throw a NotSupportedException.
