Thetype exposes the following members.
|CanConvertFromString||Determines if the specified String can be convert to an instance of DateTime. (Overrides ValueSerializer.CanConvertFromString(String, IValueSerializerContext).)|
|CanConvertToString||Determines if the specified object can be converted to a String. (Overrides ValueSerializer.CanConvertToString(Object, IValueSerializerContext).)|
|ConvertFromString||Converts a String into a DateTime. (Overrides ValueSerializer.ConvertFromString(String, IValueSerializerContext).)|
|ConvertToString||Converts an instance of DateTime to a String. (Overrides ValueSerializer.ConvertToString(Object, IValueSerializerContext).)|
|Equals(Object)||Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetConvertFromException||Returns an exception to throw when a conversion cannot be performed. (Inherited from ValueSerializer.)|
|GetConvertToException||Returns an exception to throw when a conversion cannot be performed. (Inherited from ValueSerializer.)|
|GetHashCode||Serves as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|TypeReferences||Gets an enumeration of the types referenced by the ValueSerializer. (Inherited from ValueSerializer.)|
ValueSerializer is used rather than TypeConverter for cases where type conversion requires additional state. is not attributed to a type with ValueSerializerAttribute. This is because DateTime is in mscorlib, and mscorlib cannot take dependencies on attribute classes that it does not define itself. Instead, usage of is special-cased into XAML processor behavior in .NET Framework XAML Services behavior.
In previous versions of the .NET Framework, this class existed in the WPF-specific assembly WindowsBase. In .NET Framework 4, is in the System.Xaml assembly. See Types Migrated from WPF to System.Xaml.
