Type: System.ComponentModelITypeDescriptorContext

An ITypeDescriptorContext that provides a format context.

Type: SystemObject

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

Return Value

Type: System.ComponentModelPropertyDescriptorCollection
A PropertyDescriptorCollection with the properties that are exposed for this data type, or 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 , so always check it. Also, properties on the context object can return .
