XmlReader.ValueType Property

Gets the common language runtime (CLR) type for the current node.

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

public virtual Type ValueType { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Type
The CLR type that corresponds to the typed value of the node. The default is System.String.

See Mapping XML Data Types to CLR Types in the .NET Framework documentation 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.
