Property Value

Remarks

A binding implicitly uses a default converter that tries to do a type conversion between the source value and the target value. If a conversion cannot be made, the default converter returns null.

If you want to associate a custom value converter with a binding, you should create a class that implements the IValueConverter interface and supply implementations for the Convert and ConvertBack methods. Value converters can change data from one type to another, translate between cultural details such as character sets, or modify other aspects of their presentation. For examples of typical conversion scenarios, see "Data Conversion" in the Data Binding Overview.
