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


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

This example produces the following output:

Nullable decimal: value=79228162514264337593543950335
