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)

'Declaration
Public Shared Narrowing Operator CType ( _
	attribute As XAttribute _
) As DateTimeOffset

Parameters

attribute
Type: System.Xml.Linq.XAttribute

The XAttribute to cast to DateTimeOffset.

Return Value

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

ExceptionCondition
FormatException

The attribute does not contain a valid DateTimeOffset value.

ArgumentNullException

The attribute parameter is Nothing.

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

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

Dim root As XElement = _
    <Root
        Att=<%= New DateTimeOffset(New DateTime(2006, 10, 6, 12, 30, 0)) %>/>
Console.WriteLine(root)

' casting from a strictly formatted XML attribute
Dim dt As DateTimeOffset = CType(root.Attribute("Att"), DateTimeOffset)
Console.WriteLine("dt={0}", dt)

This example produces the following output:

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