ParseValue method

SPField.ParseValue method

SharePoint 2013

When overridden in a derived class, parses a potential value of the field and returns an object that can be assigned as the value of the field.

Namespace:  Microsoft.SharePoint
Assembly:  Microsoft.SharePoint (in Microsoft.SharePoint.dll)

public virtual Object ParseValue(
	SPListItem item,
	string value


Type: Microsoft.SharePoint.SPListItem

An SPListItem containing a field whose new value needs to be validated.

Type: System.String

A string with the value to be parsed and returned.

Return value

Type: System.Object
A parsed version of value.

The default implementation simply returns value (even if it is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic)); unless value is an empty string, in which case a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) is returned.

Consider calling this method in an override of the ValidateAndParseValue(SPListItem, String) method.
