Remarks

The data binding engine calls this method when it propagates a value from the binding source to the binding target.

The data binding engine does not catch exceptions that are thrown by a user-supplied converter. Any exception that is thrown by the Convert method, or any uncaught exceptions that are thrown by methods that the Convert method calls, are treated as run-time errors. Handle anticipated problems by returning DependencyProperty.UnsetValue.

A return value of DependencyProperty.UnsetValue indicates that the converter produced no value and that the binding uses the FallbackValue, if available, or the default value instead.

A return value of Binding.DoNothing indicates that the binding does not transfer the value or use the FallbackValue or default value.
