XElement Explicit Conversion (XElement to DateTimeOffset)

Cast the value of this XAttribute to a DateTimeOffset.

This API is not CLS-compliant. 

Namespace:  System.Xml.Linq
Assembly:  System.Xml.Linq (in System.Xml.Linq.dll)

public static explicit operator DateTimeOffset (
	XElement element
)

Parameters

element
Type: System.Xml.Linq.XElement

The XElement to cast to DateTimeOffset.

Return Value

Type: System.DateTimeOffset
A DateTimeOffset that contains the content of this XElement.

ExceptionCondition
FormatException

The element does not contain a valid DateTimeOffset value.

ArgumentNullException

The element parameter is null.

This conversion operator uses the XmlConvert class to do the conversion.

The following example creates an element with date and time content. It then casts to DateTimeOffset to retrieve the value.

XElement root = new XElement("Root",
    new XElement("Child", new DateTimeOffset(new DateTime(2006, 10, 6, 12, 30, 0)))
);
Console.WriteLine(root);

DateTimeOffset dt = (DateTimeOffset)root.Element("Child");
Console.WriteLine("dt={0}", dt);

This example produces the following output:

<Root>
  <Child>2006-10-06T12:30:00-07:00</Child>
</Root>
dt=10/6/2006 12:30:00 PM -07:00
