- obj Object

The method firstly tries to use registered direct conversions between source and target types, then attempts to perform the conversion via IConvertible types and registered TypeConverters.
If these attempts fail, then the registered conversions tried to be used for intermediate steps, if possible. As an ultimate fallback, the String type is attempted to be used as intermediate conversion.
New conversions can be registered by the RegisterConversion extension methods.
The registered conversions are tried to be used for intermediate conversion steps if possible. For example, if a conversion is registered from DateTime
then conversions from DateTime
becomes automatically available using the Int64
type as an intermediate conversion step.
