XElement Explicit Conversion (XElement to DateTimeOffset)

Cast the value of this XAttribute to a DateTimeOffset.

This API is not CLS-compliant. 

Namespace:  System.Xml.Linq
Assemblies:   System.Xml.Linq (in System.Xml.Linq.dll)
  System.Xml.XDocument (in System.Xml.XDocument.dll)

F# does not support the declaration of new casting operators.

Parameters

element
Type: System.Xml.Linq.XElement

The XElement to cast to DateTimeOffset.

Return Value

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

ExceptionCondition
FormatException

The element does not contain a valid DateTimeOffset value.

ArgumentNullException

The element parameter is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

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

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

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

This example produces the following output:

<Root>
  <Child>2006-10-06T12:30:00-07:00</Child>
</Root>
dt=10/6/2006 12:30:00 PM -07:00
