Usage Note

In Visual Basic and C#, you can call this method as an instance method on any object of type Object. When you use instance method syntax to call this method, omit the first parameter. For more information, see Extension Methods (Visual Basic) or Extension Methods (C# Programming Guide).

New conversions can be registered by the RegisterConversion Type extension methods.

Tip Tip
The registered conversions are tried to be used for intermediate conversion steps if possible. For example, if a conversion is registered from Int64 to IntPtr, then conversions from other convertible types become automatically available using the Int64 type as an intermediate conversion step.
