Remarks

The Visual Studio package code looks for this attribute, rather than TypeConverterAttribute, to perform type conversion of properties on property pages.

For information about implementing type converters, see How to: Implement a Type Converter. For more general information about attributes and metadata, see Attributes Overview and Extending Metadata Using Attributes.
