ConfigurationConverterBase.CanConvertTo(ITypeDescriptorContext, Type) Method

Definition

Determines whether the conversion is allowed.

public:
 override bool CanConvertTo(System::ComponentModel::ITypeDescriptorContext ^ ctx, Type ^ type);
public override bool CanConvertTo (System.ComponentModel.ITypeDescriptorContext ctx, Type type);
override this.CanConvertTo : System.ComponentModel.ITypeDescriptorContext * Type -> bool

Parameters

ctx
ITypeDescriptorContext

The ITypeDescriptorContext object used for type conversion.

type
Type

The type to convert to.

Returns

true if the conversion is allowed; otherwise, false.

Examples

The following example code shows how to override the CanConvertTo method to create a custom TimeSpan converter type. Also, the example shows how to use this type in a custom section.

public override bool CanConvertTo(
    ITypeDescriptorContext ctx, Type type)
{
    return (type == typeof(string));
}
Public Overrides Function CanConvertTo( _
ByVal ctx As ITypeDescriptorContext, _
ByVal type As Type) As Boolean
    Return (type.ToString() = GetType(String).ToString())

End Function 'CanConvertTo

Remarks

The CanConvertTo method determines whether the strings contained in the configuration file can be converted to the related strongly typed properties.
