Provides a type converter to convert string objects to and from other representations.

See Also: StringConverter Members


public class StringConverter : TypeConverter


This converter can only convert to a string. It works as a pass through for other converters that want to convert an object to a string.

For more information about type converters, see the System.ComponentModel.TypeConverter base class and How to: Implement a Type Converter.


You should never create an instance of System.ComponentModel.StringConverter. Instead, call the TypeDescriptor.GetConverter(object) method of System.ComponentModel.TypeDescriptor. For more information, see the examples in the System.ComponentModel.TypeConverter base class.
