This API is not CLS-compliant.

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

public:
static explicit operator TimeSpan (
	XElement^ element
)

Parameters

element
Type: System.Xml.Linq::XElement^

The XElement to cast to TimeSpan.

Return Value

Type: System::TimeSpan

A TimeSpan that contains the content of this XElement.

Exception Condition
FormatException

The element does not contain a valid TimeSpan value.

ArgumentNullException

The element parameter is null.

The value space of an attribute or element that contains time span content is closely related to duration content as described in ISO 8601. When creating an attribute or element that contains time span content, the attribute or element values are formatted per the W3C specification. Please see the W3C specification for more details.

Behavior is lax when casting to a TimeSpan from an attribute or element. Even if the attribute or element value is not formatted exactly per the W3C specification, the value is appropriately converted to a TimeSpan.

The following example creates an element with time span content. It then retrieves the value by casting to TimeSpan.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.

This example produces the following output:


value=01:05:30
