Gets The Common Language Runtime (CLR) type for the current node.
Assembly: System.Xml (in System.Xml.dll)
See Mapping XML Data Types to CLR Types for a list of the default mappings.
An element of type xs:int has a ValueType of System.Int32 by default. However, the ValueType could be one of the valid types that can be mapped to xs:int, such as System.Int16 or System.Double.
If a node is un-typed, or if the node is an element that contains mixed content, the node value is mapped to the System.String type.Notes to Implementers:
Implementers must provide a ValueType for every node, even if it is only the System.String type.
