Parameters

element
Type: System.Xml.Linq.XElement

The element does not contain a valid Int32 value.

The following example creates an element with unsigned integer content. It then retrieves the value by casting to Nullable<T> of Int32.

XElement root = new XElement("Root", 
    new XElement("Value", 2147483647)
);
int? value = (int?)root.Element("Value");
Console.WriteLine("Nullable integer: value={0}", value == null ? "null" : value.ToString());

This example produces the following output:

Nullable integer: value=2147483647
