public virtual bool GetStandardValuesSupported(
	ITypeDescriptorContext context
virtual bool GetStandardValuesSupported(
	ITypeDescriptorContext^ context
abstract GetStandardValuesSupported : 
        context:ITypeDescriptorContext -> bool
override GetStandardValuesSupported :

Public Overridable Function GetStandardValuesSupported (
	context As ITypeDescriptorContext
) As Boolean



An ITypeDescriptorContext that provides a format context.

Return Value


true if GetStandardValues should be called to find a common set of values the object supports; otherwise, false.

As implemented in this class, this method always returns false.

Use the context parameter to extract additional information about the environment from which this converter is invoked. This parameter can be null, so always check it. Also, properties on the context object can return null.

Notes to Inheritors:

Override this method if the type you want to convert supports standard values.
