TypeConverter.GetProperties Method (ITypeDescriptorContext, Object)

Returns a collection of properties for the type of array specified by the value parameter, using the specified context.

Namespace: System.ComponentModel
Assembly: System (in system.dll)

public PropertyDescriptorCollection GetProperties (
	ITypeDescriptorContext context,
	Object value
)
public PropertyDescriptorCollection GetProperties (
	ITypeDescriptorContext context, 
	Object value
)
public function GetProperties (
	context : ITypeDescriptorContext, 
	value : Object
) : PropertyDescriptorCollection
Not applicable.

Parameters

context

An ITypeDescriptorContext that provides a format context.

value

An Object that specifies the type of array for which to get properties.

Return Value

A PropertyDescriptorCollection with the properties that are exposed for this data type, or a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) if there are no properties.

Use the context parameter to extract additional information about the environment from which this converter is invoked. This parameter can be a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), so always check it. Also, properties on the context object can return a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

As implemented in this class, this method always returns a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

By default, a type does not return properties. An easy implementation of this method can call GetProperties for the correct data type.
