Remarks

Use the UnitConverter class to convert a Unit to an object of another data type. You can also use the UnitConverter class to convert an object of another data type to a Unit.

System_CAPS_noteNote

This converter can convert only a string to Unit and a Unit to a string.

System_CAPS_cautionCaution

You should never access a type converter directly. Instead, call the appropriate converter by using System.ComponentModelTypeDescriptor. For more information, see the examples in the System.ComponentModelTypeConverter base class.
