SqlXml Class

Represents XML data stored in or retrieved from a server.

Namespace:  System.Data.SqlTypes
Assembly:  System.Data (in System.Data.dll)

public sealed class SqlXml : INullable, 

This class contains an instance of an XmlReader-derived type, and adds SQL-specific features such as database-style null semantics by implementing the INullable interface. When you use SqlXml, the XML value that you assign to the SqlXml instance must be consumable by an XmlReader. For unicode data, the Byte Order Mark (BOM) must be present in the stream of data.


Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
