	XElement element


Type: System.Xml.Linq.XElement

The XElement to cast to Nullable<T> of Decimal.

Return Value

Type: System.Nullable<Decimal>
A Nullable<T> of Decimal that contains the content of this XElement.


The element does not contain a valid Decimal value.

The following example creates an element with decimal content. It then retrieves the value by casting to Nullable<T> of Decimal.

XElement root = new XElement("Root",
    new XElement("Value", "79228162514264337593543950335")
decimal? value = (decimal?)root.Element("Value");
Console.WriteLine("Nullable decimal: value={0}", value == null ? "null" : value.ToString());

This example produces the following output:

Nullable decimal: value=79228162514264337593543950335
