This converter can only convert an enumeration object to and from a string.

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

Note

The behavior of the ConvertTo method is undefined if the enumeration has multiple fields with the same value.
