[ This article is for Windows Phone 8 developers. If you’re developing for Windows 10, see the latest documentation. ]

Cast the value of this XAttribute to a DateTimeOffset.

This API is not CLS-compliant. 

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

public static explicit operator DateTimeOffset (
	XAttribute attribute
)

Parameters

attribute
Type: System.Xml.Linq.XAttribute
The XAttribute to cast to DateTimeOffset.

Return Value

Type: System.DateTimeOffset
A DateTimeOffset that contains the content of this XAttribute.

ExceptionCondition
FormatException

The attribute does not contain a valid DateTimeOffset value.

ArgumentNullException

The attribute parameter is null.

This conversion operator uses the XmlConvert class to do the conversion.

The following example creates an attribute with date and time content. It then casts it to DateTimeOffset to retrieve the value.


StringBuilder output = new StringBuilder();
XElement root = new XElement("Root",
    new XAttribute("Att", new DateTimeOffset(new DateTime(2006, 10, 6, 12, 30, 0)))
);
output.Append(root + Environment.NewLine);

// casting from a strictly formatted XML attribute
DateTimeOffset dt = (DateTimeOffset)root.Attribute("Att");
output.Append("dt=" + dt + Environment.NewLine);

OutputTextBlock.Text = output.ToString();
