culture

A CultureInfo object that specifies the culture used to represent the object.

value
Object Object Object Object

The object to convert.

destinationType

Remarks

The most common type conversion is to and from a string type. The default implementation calls the ToString method of the object if the object is valid and if the destination type is string.
