Public Overrides Function ConvertFrom (context As ITypeDescriptorContext, culture As CultureInfo, value As Object) As Object

Parameters

context
ITypeDescriptorContext

An ITypeDescriptorContext that represents the data-bound component or the control that the property belongs to.

culture
CultureInfo

A CultureInfo object that can be used to provide additional culture information.

value
Object

The value to convert from.

Returns

A string containing the value if value is not null and contains a string; otherwise, an empty string ("").

Remarks

Note

You typically do not access a type converter directly. This implementation of TypeConverter is intended for use by a data-bound control at design time, and is instantiated with a TypeConverterAttribute on a property.
