SoapDate Class

Wraps an XSD date type.

Namespace:  System.Runtime.Remoting.Metadata.W3cXsd2001
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

[SerializableAttribute]
[ComVisibleAttribute(true)]
public sealed class SoapDate : ISoapXsd

For more information about XSD data types, see "XML Data Types Reference" in the MSDN Library at http://msdn.microsoft.com/library.

The following code example demonstrates using the SoapDate class to wrap an XML date type.

using System;
using System.Runtime.Remoting.Metadata.W3cXsd2001;

public class Demo
{
    public static void Main(string[] args)
    {
        // Parse an XSD date to create a SoapDate object.
        string xsdDate = "2003-02-04";
        SoapDate date = SoapDate.Parse(xsdDate);

        // Serialize a DateTime object as an XSD date string.
        Console.WriteLine("The date in XSD format is {0}.",
            date.ToString());

        // Print the XSD type string of this particular SoapDate object.
        Console.WriteLine("The XSD type of the SoapDate object is {0}.",
            date.GetXsdType());

        // Print the value of the SoapDate object.
        Console.WriteLine("The value of the SoapDate object is {0}.",
            date.Value);

        // Print the sign of the SoapDate object.
        Console.WriteLine("The sign of the SoapDate object is {0}.",
            date.Sign);

        // Print the XSD type string of the SoapDate class.
        Console.WriteLine("The XSD type of SoapDate is {0}.",
            SoapDate.XsdType);
    }
}
#using <mscorlib.dll>
using namespace System;
using namespace System::Runtime::Remoting::Metadata::W3cXsd2001;

int main()
{
    // Parse an XSD date to create a SoapDate object.
    String* xsdDate = S"2003-02-04";

    // Serialize a DateTime object as an XSD date string.
    Console::WriteLine(S"The date in XSD format is {0}.",
        date);

    // Print out the XSD type string of this particular SoapDate object.
    Console::WriteLine(S"The XSD type of the SoapDate instance is {0}.",
        date->GetXsdType());

    // Print out the value of the SoapDate object.
    Console::WriteLine(S"The value of the SoapDate instance is {0}.",
