LanguagePrimitives.ConvertTo Method

Converts an object from one type to another. The variants of this method can be used to convert the object with or without providing an IFormatProvider interface for use in the type conversion.

Windows PowerShell can use standard Windows PowerShell language converters or custom converters to perform the type conversion. For more information about these converters and the exceptions that might be thrown during the conversion process, see ETS Type Conversion.
