In this article for the Visual Studio magazine Kathleen Dollard talks about value converters in Silverlight.

Q: I like the capabilities of value converters in Silverlight, but they're really a pain to write. I'm creating one for different situations, each with several conditions. For example, one converter is if something is to be made visible on true, and another is to be visible when the bound value is false. Is there a way to make this easier?

A: Value converters are extremely powerful. They implement IValueConverter, and they have two methods: Convert and ConvertBack. Value converters are valuable in minimizing the code required directly in the UI and in providing reuse of conversion logic.
