XmlReader.ReadElementContentAsDateTime Method (String, String)

Note: This method is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Checks that the specified local name and namespace URI matches that of the current element, then reads the current element and returns the contents as a DateTime object.

Namespace: System.Xml
Assembly: System.Xml (in system.xml.dll)

public virtual DateTime ReadElementContentAsDateTime (
	string localName,
	string namespaceURI
)
public DateTime ReadElementContentAsDateTime (
	String localName, 
	String namespaceURI
)
public function ReadElementContentAsDateTime (
	localName : String, 
	namespaceURI : String
) : DateTime

Parameters

localName

The local name of the element.

namespaceURI

The namespace URI of the element.

Return Value

The element contents as a DateTime object.

Exception typeCondition

InvalidOperationException

The XmlReader is not positioned on an element.

XmlException

The current element contains child elements.

-or-

The element content cannot be converted to the requested type.

ArgumentNullException

The method is called with a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) arguments.

ArgumentException

The specified local name and namespace URI do not match that of the current element being read.

This method reads the start tag, the contents of the element, and moves the reader past the end element tag. It expands entities and ignores processing instructions and comments. The element can only contain simple content. That is, it cannot have child elements.

If the content is typed xsd:dateTime, the reader returns an unboxed DateTime object. If the content is not typed xsd:dateTime, the reader attempts to convert it to a DateTime object according to the rules defined by the W3C XML Schema Part 2: Datatypes recommendation (http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-2/).

NoteNote

You cannot rely on the DateTime.Year value when the content is typed as xsd:gMonthDay. XmlReader always sets the DateTime.Year value to 1904 in this case.
