Exception typeCondition

ArgumentException

An invalid value was specified.

This method takes the common language runtime (CLR) object and converts the input value to the desired output type using the XML Schema definition language (XSD) data type conversion rules.

If the CLR object is a list type such as IEnumerable, IList, or ICollection, it is treated as an array of the value type. The XmlWriter converts the value to its string representations according to the XML Schema (XSD) data type rules and writes it out using the WriteString method.

If this method is called on an XmlWriter instance that outputs text-only, the typed value is serialized to text.

For more information, see Writing Typed Data.
